Life at Homestead Cottages

The best way to get a feel for what life at Homestead Cottages is like is to listen to what some of the residents have to say!

Peace of mind There’s no need to worry about running and maintaining your own home. It’s clear that people find a ‘home from home’ where they live happily in a close community with likeminded people.

Individual living Each of the Homestead Cottages properties is, in every respect, someone’s home. So, to make sure it’s homely, residents can decorate and furnish rooms to suit their own taste.

Community living The Christian tradition behind Homestead Cottages means that there’s a supportive and caring environment but also a realisation that, sometimes, people want to be private and less sociable.

Those who enjoy gardening can design and tend to their own front and back gardens. Those who don’t enjoy, or can’t now manage gardening will find help available.

“Having so many friendly and sociable people to be with has certainly made a difference to my life”

“As you walk through the gates there’s a feeling of peace; there’s also a sense of ‘family’ here – always a sympathetic ear”

“We love the fellowship and friendliness and the way we are looked after so well”

“We care for each other and it’s our Homestead family”

“I like the care and security, the fellowship and companionship and the lovely homes and gardens we have”
