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

Maintaining independence as we get older or physically challenged is important and at Fernlea we have recognised that and designed comfortable and stunning suites that support independent living.

Our suites are designed for those with a higher level of independence, encouraging residents to live in their own well maintained and furnished surroundings, with the reassurance of 24 hour on-site management and care support if any assistance is needed.

Benefits of our suites include all-inclusive costs including laundry, cleaning and catering, comfortable and fully furnished suites, including fitted kitchens with adjustable hob and sink and level shower room, private access, and direct and easy access to all events and the main facility.


In every suite, our bedrooms are large, spacious and furnished with comfortable beds, all of our suites are fitted with high quality slip resistant en-suite shower rooms, independent heating controls and have been decorated to an extremely high standard. Our suites are designed to enhance comfort in order to ensure individuals can be proud to call their suite home.

Our suites offer independent care packages which can be flexible and tailored to suit individual needs*.
