Room To Relax
We have a large comfortable lounge with French windows looking out to the gardens and patio, leading to a terrace to enjoy the morning sun. The lounge has a TV with loop system for hearing aids, beautiful mirror, cosy chairs, sofa and large fireplace. This room leads through to a wooden floored dining area which can also be used as our homemade cinema with a large screen for residents to enjoy movies or view DVDs and photos of family holidays.
