Our four acres of well-maintained and landscaped gardens stretch down from the terraces to the bank of the River Thames. The beautiful selection of stunning gardens provide the perfect spot to take meals, enjoy snacks or host and entertain visiting friends and family. The gardens are a great point of interest for our residents with several patios for relaxing outside on a sunny summer’s day. Residents can also stay active and participate in the upkeep of the grounds, spending the day accompanied by our full time gardener, sharing their years of green fingered experience which is highly appreciated. The latest edition to the grounds is a sensational Sensory Garden, designed and planted to stimulate the 5 senses of our residents and their guests. This specialist garden sits alongside our other established gardens like The Terrace Garden, full of bird tables and lavender, as well as our Waterside Garden, complete with duck pond and brimming with wildlife the year round.
  • "There was a caring culture in the home. We observed many kind and caring interactions throughout the daywhich included the whole staff team"
  • "We saw a member of the catering team greeting a person. The member of staff gently touched the person'sarm and said, "It's lovely to see you. It makes my day when I see you smile".
  • "The maintenance person chatted to people in the corridor as they passed. One person was clearly concerned about an issue and the maintenance person took time to reassure them and passed the information to a care worker".
  • "Outside people's individual rooms there were memory boxes containing pictures and items to prompt recognition. Doors were painted in bright colours and resembled an external front door"
