    What’s life like here?

    Homely is the keyword visitors use to describe Tenby House. There are a number of areas in which our residents can socialise, we have a beautiful large kitchen, a lounge area and an activities area for our residents. In the summer our residents often make use of the outdoor space. Our beautiful private garden is often used for gardening and other activities.

    “it’s just the people around me that are always there for me when I need a chat, and since I've been here I've been getting better and better.”
