are welcomed to the many leisure activities both indoors and out, that we organise for those
who choose to participate.
We regularly go to stately homes, gardens, concerts shows etc always with plenty of willing
staff in attendance. We are very close to Tatton Park which is always a popular outing for
We recognise that meal times play an important part in the social life of the home and provide
a welcoming environment in the Dining Room. Our chef offers tempting daily dishes using fresh

We encourage residents to make their own decisions on such things as choice of meals, times of
rising and retiring and whether to spend their time in their rooms or in the lounges.
