Each of the 21 bedrooms at The Laurels offers a homely space, for residents to make their own, most rooms have beautiful views over the surrounding fields. Residents are encouraged to bring their own belongings to personalise their room, which also helps us to get to know people better. All our bedrooms come with their own en-suite bathroom, offering dignity and privacy.
Our lounge and dining rooms are comfortably furnished, designed to make residents feel instantly at home. They are places to relax, settle into their favourite chair or catch up with friends over a cup of tea and biscuit. We encourage them to spend time just as they would at home, while our friendly staff provide the care they need.
The garden at The Laurels is a popular spot, with great views over the rolling hills. Our rooftop terrace is a favourite place to enjoy afternoon tea in the summer months, while our extensive vegetable patches are cultivated by residents throughout the year, with much of the produce making its way on to their dinner plates.
