Abbeyfield House provides quality sheltered housing in the heart of Kingsbridge in the South Hams. A personalised retirement option offering the best of independent living whilst remaining part of a friendly and sociable shared house.

Sheltered Housing

Abbeyfield Sheltered Housing offers you your own private space to enjoy later life combined with peace of mind there’s someone on hand to support you with daily activities. Choosing to live in an Abbeyfield home means you can maintain your independence in the comfort of your own room, with the opportunity to enjoy the company of others during meal times and in communal areas of the house such as the dining room, lounge and gardens.

What is Sheltered Housing?

Sheltered Housing is a type of accommodation for older people who are retired and are able to live independently but choose to live in a safe and secure environment with helpful staff who are on hand to support as and when required. We often refer to our Sheltered Housing apartments as Supported Housing, for this very reason, or Retirement Housing. Our sheltered houses are in convenient locations, often a converted home with a friendly manager and staff supporting 24/7/365, integrated alarm systems, communal areas for socialising and meals provided throughout the day.

What's included?

  • Private rooms and bedsits in a converted house.
  • Home Manager(s), responsible for looking after the buildings and making sure the residents feel safe and are well supported throughout the day.
  • A community alarm system for safety and security of residents.
  • Communal areas, such as a lounge, laundry room, guest flat and garden adaptations to make getting around easier and safer.
  • Social activities among the residents, such as coffee mornings, film nights or a gardening club.

Who is entitled to Sheltered Housing?

Abbeyfield’s Sheltered Housing apartments are available to rent. Alternatively, there are funding options available subject to request that would need eligibility checks approved by a Local Authority or Housing Association.

The difference between sheltered housing and retirement housing

They are the same type of accommodation! There are some cases of sheltered housing being available to under 55’s but that’s the only difference. A sheltered housing scheme and retirement housing scheme are one in the same. All Abbeyfield’s housing options are only available to older adults over the age of 55 but the features of both are the same.

A warm welcome to Abbeyfield

Nestled in the centre of the traditional English old market town of Kingsbridge, Abbeyfield House is a purpose built house, built in 1996, with ten single occupancy studio rooms and a flat offering a warm, friendly, family-feel community, with excellent home cooked meals and a professional, caring and dedicated team of staff and volunteers.

All rooms are a generous size and include a purpose built en-suite bathroom, bedroom/ lounge area and kitchenette which has been fitted with a sink, worktop and cupboards. The rooms are carpeted ready for you to furnish with your own personal belongings to make you feel right at home, and have television and telephone points with an ample number of electrical sockets as well as your own secure front door.

The House Manager and volunteers are committed to providing support and advice to residents to help maintain good health and independence. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality home cooked lunches and suppers, served everyday in our communal dining room, and providing a warm, welcoming and inviting atmosphere for all of residents.

Abbeyfield House is in the perfect location; Kingsbridge is situated between Plymouth, Dartmoor and Torquay, in the southern tip of the Devon countryside. Relax on beautiful sandy beaches, or admire the view of the rich, green, rolling countryside- ideal destinations for peaceful walks or catching up with family and friends. Abbeyfield House is a few minutes stroll away from Kingsbridge town centre where you’ll find a public boating pontoon on the estuary, libraries, pharmacies, cafes, newsagent, art gallery and a selection of shops, all surrounding the beautiful waterside Quay area.

Abbeyfield House is managed by Abbeyfield South West Society.
