Located in the historical town of Hadleigh, famous for its castle and country park, Abbeyfield House offers sheltered housing and consists of 14 rooms all on ground level. All of our rooms come with en-suite facilities but we encourage residents to bring their own furniture allowing you to personalise it to your own taste and make it feel like home.

Built in 1983 by the Hadleigh Benfleet Society, the house has always been well maintained to a high standard and our caring team of staff are all dedicated to ensuring that our residents feel happy and supported by creating a warm and homely atmosphere.

You’ll find a beautiful communal lounge and dining room in the house where you can socialise and spend time getting to know other residents. Alternatively, you can while away the time in the attractive well-tended garden, spend time in the summerhouse to read a book, or do a little gardening. We have four communal bathrooms/wet rooms and a laundry room that are also available for you to use.

Abbeyfield House is in a great location; we are a short bus, car or train ride away from the following places of interest:

  • Leigh-on-Sea which was a fishing and trading settlement from the late middle ages. It has a great variety of shellfish and a nice restaurant. 
  • Chalkwell-on-Sea with it's beautiful sandy beaches that stretch for miles.
  • Southend-on-Sea boasting beautiful sandy beaches, home to the longest pleasure pier, which is just over a mile long. There is a large indoor/outdoor shopping centre within walking distance of the seafront which has a shop mobility service.

The nearest bus stop is at the end of Chapel Lane which is a ten minute walk from the house. The train station is a five minute drive, with direct links into London and Southend on Sea. 

We are fortunate to have the local swimming pool, Runnymead within a five minute drive.
