Here is our Owners' typical week at Honeybourne Gate??

The week starts off with 'Puddle-ducks' swimming club here, with their toddlers, on Monday morning and again Friday morning. Then Tuesdays are lined up for a 'Knit and Natter Club' which will be starting in the Autumn. Wednesday is the popular Movie Matinee afternoon where the Owners are often treated to choc-ices and the movie is also repeated on a Sunday, due to its popularity.

Each Thursday afternoon, we have our extremely busy Tea Party where as many Owners as possible join us for a chat over tea or coffee and wonderful home-made cakes. Future owners, who are in the process of moving, also regularly join in making many friends even before they arrive! Friday evening is a very merry 'Happy Hour' in the welcoming owners' lounge with a selection of wine and bottled beers then Saturday 'brunch' is served in the restaurant at 12pm.
Ending the week on a high point is the Sunday roast which just gets better! Owners bring their friends and family for a super 3-course lunch all for just £10.50 per head.

During the week lunch is served daily and we have a 4-week menu to whet your appetite plus, coffee is available every morning.

There's always a jig-saw to do, TV to watch or the piano to play. You can spoil yourself in the hair and beauty salon or, if you're feeling really energetic, you can spend time in the fitness gym; we have a personal trainer in attendance once a week and a fun exercise class. If you are feeling really energetic we have a table tennis table available in the Atrium.

There really is never a dull moment at Honeybourne Gate??!

EXTRA CARE - On-site staff that cater to your needs?.

At Honeybourne Gate we offer flexible extra-care packages that change to your needs so there is always help on hand when you need it. Here is just one testimonial from a happy Owner?.

"In April of this year I underwent major surgery. The staff at Honeybourne Gate were wonderful and very quickly ordered the necessary equipment I needed, (over and above that supplied by the NHS on loan) upon my return home.

Arrangements were made for the personal assisted care I required and for freshly cooked meals to be brought to my apartment direct from the restaurant each day. A member of staff popped in regularly, happy to assist if necessary, even if it just meant making a welcome cup of tea and a chat. I felt safe knowing someone would answer my call bell and be with me immediately any time of day or night.

At Honeybourne Gate nothing is too much trouble in assuring that owners are happy and relaxed in a friendly environment. Gone are the days when going into care/assisted living meant living in fear of becoming ill or incapacitated and, as a consequence, being asked to move on.

Today I am well and my future is bright, I am enjoying taking pleasant walks along the old Honeybourne railway line and visiting the Churchill gardens. Very soon I hope to be taking the short walk into town.

I cannot thank everyone enough for their kindness and care that went a long way to making my recovery such a success. The alternative doesn't bare thinking about.
My sincere thanks to all the staff and residents at Honeybourne Gate 28.6.18".


There are advanced safety features such as CCTV and an emergency alarm system to summon immediate assistance by in-house staff 24/7. Also, we have flexible care options available that can adapt to your changing needs - please ask about our care packages and see the testimonial above.
