Lee House is a care home situated in the idyllic Wimbledon village, where there is something for everyone. We are a five-minute walk from the quaint village centre where you’ll discover an array of chic shops, cafes and bars, as well as a selection of restaurants from around the world. When the sun is shining, there is nothing better than taking a walk across Wimbledon Common, stopping off to have a picnic.
The village becomes very vibrant during the annual Wimbledon tennis competition fortnight, where you can often spot a celebrity or two down at the local pub. Lee House has even been visited by Andy Murray’s grandparents and brother! There are often events in Wimbledon Common which include pop up stands and food stalls, with something for everyone to enjoy.
Located nearby is the UK's first Buddhist Temple where you can walk around an ornamental lake, flower garden and Orchard garden. You might also like to visit the Wimbledon Museum of Local History or learn about the history of windmills at the Wimbledon Windmill.
At Lee House, we have 27 en-suite bedrooms many of which have a balcony or patio doors that look out onto our beautiful garden. The en-suite wet rooms include a shower, toilet and sink and each room has a bed, bedside table, chest of drawers and an armchair.
