Welcome to our house

Set in the ancient market town of Cockermouth, Abbeyfield House is a sheltered house offering independence, support and companionship for older people. The house was built in 1980 and consists of 10 ensuite rooms and two flats. The house is ideally located close to the Lake District which is a stunning tourist location flourishing with nature and wildlife. It is a just a bus journey to Keswick and Windermere which are perfect for a day out and have many attractive areas to visit. You can also visit Workington and Carlisle which are popular shopping locations.

The house is close to local amenities as it is within walking distance of the town centre where you will shops, cafes, churches, banks and places to eat.

Abbeyfield House is a very friendly and welcoming house and each day is different as there is always a lot happening here. We allow pets in the house should you wish to bring a little companion with you, we find that residents enjoy spending time with animals so this is something we like to support. Staff work hard to offer a range of activities for our residents and make time to organise events.

We have a local beautician who attends monthly to carry out treatments such as manicures and pedicures. A hairdresser attends every Wednesday and the local chiropodist visits every few weeks.

We have Dylan the friendly Labrador dog who comes to visit every second Monday for his morning tea and biscuits.

We hold parties for all of our resident’s birthdays and really celebrate the occasion. We have Easter lunch, film afternoons, pie week and fashion week.

During Christmas we have activities almost every day with a full calendar of events.  

This is a truly family-orientated house and we always make everyone feel right at home.
