Living at Fernlea

We encourage social interaction and Fernlea has been designed to provide residents with shared living space that is flexible enough to enable them to choose the range and diversity of their social interaction. The shared living spaces are equipped with high quality seating, occasional tables, large screen TV with Sky access (where appropriate) and have WiFi access. The main lounge has a large divider that incorporates a 2.4m long aquarium, hosting an abundance of tropical fish. Each lounge looks out to landscaped gardened areas, bringing the outside living areas inside, and the first floor lounge has a balcony where residents can sit out and enjoy the view over Torkington Park. Our therapy room provides a space where residents can enjoy treatments such as hairdressing, aromatherapy and reflexology in a subtle, private and relaxed environment.

Private accommodation

We pride ourselves in providing high quality accommodation for all our residents and all our rooms are furnished to a high standard and maintained by our own in-house property management team. Our standard rooms are large and spacious and all have ensuite shower rooms, free internet access and access to the internal movie and information channels on the TV. All rooms have wired facilities for private telephone lines and Sky TV (individual subscription required). Our 14 premium rooms have been designed to meet the needs of higher dependency residents with complex healthcare needs. These rooms are larger than our standard rooms and include overhead tracking. All rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the garden areas to the rear.


We aim to ensure that every resident continues to enjoy all aspects of their daily lives, which includes recreational, cultural, social, and occupational activities to promote their comfort and well-being. After listening to suggestions made by our resident community, we have developed our brand new ‘Cut’ Well-Being Centre at Fernlea. ‘Cut’ our centre for well-being, situated separate from the main building, allows our residents to experience the joy and excitement of a day out at the movies or at the salon without leaving the comfort and safety of their home.

Our residents can immerse themselves in our fully fitted, 5 place, ultra HD cinema experience equipped with 2.6 metre screen and state-of-the-art integrated surround sound-system. With regular showings and an ever-growing range of films, our residents can sit back, relax, and enjoy their favourite classic or experience something totally new. Families and friends are also welcome book out our screen and enjoy a film with their loved ones.

Our residents can relax in luxury while being pampered in our beautiful salon. Complete with nail bar, hair salon, and pedi-spa our salon offers a range of services. With regular visits from professionals and an array of professional products, our residents can book a slot to get their hair cut and styled, have a manicure or pedicure, or simply relax while having a head massage.

A dining experience

Our catering team work closely with residents to produce a varied menu incorporating individual choices and traditional favourites. Our spacious restaurant serves high quality meals made from fresh ingredients sourced from preferred suppliers, to ensure a balanced nutritional diet.

The décor and location of the restaurant encompass natural sunlight and the quality dining furniture creates a warm and inviting atmosphere which enhances the dining experience. When the sun is shining, an alfresco dining experience can be offered in the courtyard outside the restaurant.

The Restaurant is independent from the home and offers a lovely opportunity for friends and relatives to choose from our very reasonably priced menu to join their loved ones for a meal or at the bistro area which offers hot drinks and snacks throughout the day.

It’s more than just bathing

Hydromassage enhances the therapeutic and relaxing effects of bathing and provides a pleasant experience for our residents.

The hydromassage bathing system creates millions of small bubbles and agitation in the water which increases stimulation of peripheral blood circulation and creates a deep heat effect which reduces pain and inflammation.
