Our Home

There are twenty private rooms in all and each has a distinctively different feel, due in part to the original Georgian features and residents are free to bring their own furniture and add personal touches. There is a selection of rooms with private bathrooms or showers and doors that open directly into the garden for residents to enjoy. Yet common to all rooms are en-suite facilities, colour television, individual call bell alarm, telephone point, internet access, reliable Wi-Fi, door lock, and a secure lockable storage facility. If your choice of room isn’t available, as a resident you’ll be given first choice when a vacancy does arise.

“Their GP called Cornelius House the Rolls-Royce of care homes and I have to agree.”
