Originally built in the late 19th Century, Drake Lodge has a rich history much like Tavistock itself. Fully refurbished in 2010, Drake Lodge is proud to offer older people support and companionship in later life.
We have 17 en-suite rooms and one en-suite flat plus a communal lounge and dining room. We also have a newly constructed function room for activities and presentations, large enough for all residents and volunteers to socialise together.
Abbeyfield has complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 and is COVID-secure. Please click to find out more about our response to the pandemic.
