Welcome to a place you will be proud to call home

Welcome to a place you will be proud to call home

We believe that the quality of accommodation is one of the key drivers in providing high quality care and we pride ourselves in the standard of our accommodation, fixtures and furnishings

Fernlea has been designed and developed from the outset with the aim of providing high quality accommodation for all our residents and all our private accommodation is 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 en-suite shower rooms, free internet access and access to the internal movie and information channels on the TV system. 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 have all the facilities of our standard rooms but are larger and include overhead tracking.

All rooms include large low level windows or patio doors that bring an abundance of natural light into the rooms and rooms on the ground floor have direct private access to the gardens at the rear.

Shared living spaces

Shared Living

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. Each space is equipped with high quality furniture, large screen TV and WiFi access. The main lounge incorporates a large aquarium and looks out to landscaped gardened areas from wide bi-folding doors that brings the outside living areas inside. The first floor lounge has a balcony where residents can sit out and enjoy the views over Torkington Park.


Fernlea is technologically progressive. Each room has a TV access point that provides digital TV channels, an information channel and access to the Fernlea Movie Channel. The movie channel shows the afternoon film and ensures that residents who do not wish to watch the movie in the cinema lounge, or are unable to, do not miss out on the event.

Free internet access is available in every room via a network point and WiFi is available in all the shared living spaces to allow the use of mobile devices

Independent Living

Maintaining independence as we get older or physically challenged is important and at Fernlea we have recognised this and designed areas that support independent living. Our suites encourage residents to live in their own well maintained and furnished surroundings, with the reassurance that our care team are there if they need help with assistance in areas such as medication, bathing or personal care.

Bathing Spa

We understand the importance of bathing to individuals. The benefits of bathing, particularly for residents, are more than skin-deep. Bathing offers unique conditions for promoting a feeling of well-being. Our hydrotherapy bathing system combines the therapeutic effects of bathing with a relaxing underwater muscle massage, whilst the aromatherapy system uses the beneficial effects of essential oils for an aromatic bathing experience creating an atmosphere of serenity and relaxation.
