"GilmourGardens are bungalows set amongst the fields and farmland on the very edge of the Manor Estate about a mile and half from Alton Town Centre.
A bus runs to the town half-hourly and several taxi companies serve the area. The railway station and the health centre are less than a mile away. There are regular buses to Guildford, Winchester and Basingstoke from the station. Another surgery and the Community Hospital are about ten minutes drive away.

All the bungalows have central heating and double glazing and are linked to an intercom system via a pull cord to the Independent Living Officer ( when on duty) or to our supporting control centre after hours. This means that residents can be secure in the knowledge that there is always someone available to offer support in an emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Many of the bungalows have private, fenced back gardens. Grass is cut regularly during the season.
Laundry services are provided by nearby Orchard House, at a competitive cost. Regular trips and social functions are arranged jointly with the residents of Orchard House. There is a twin-bedded guestroom available at nearby Orchard House, with private facilities for residents to hire for visiting family and friends at a small charge. Pets are welcome at the discretion of the Independent Living Officer." Show less
