Welcome to our house

Located in popular seaside town of Great Yarmouth, one of East Anglia's best beach resorts, its famous history stems from its maritime heritage and port which was once the heart of the herring industry, and is where you'll find Abbeyfield House.

Built in 1975, it has been part of Abbeyfield for over ten years and has nine rooms each with its own toilet and kitchen and our upper floor is accessible by a chair lift also have a balcony. We also have a small room which we use for trial and short stays. 

We believe in being part of a community and coming together, our delightful communal lounge and dining room are the ideal locations for getting to know other residents, finding companionship and chatting to someone about your day. 

We have a wonderful well maintained garden with ample seating area, perfect for relaxing, enjoying the sunshine, or catching up with some old and new friends or family. There is a conservatory with a seating area and a small library available. In the summer 

Abbeyfield House is ideally situated, we're a seven minute drive away from the seafront and a stone's throw away from the River Bure, we also have the train station nearby with routes to Ipswich, Cambridge and London.

Great Yarmouth is famous for its Golden Mile, where you'll discover the best choice of restaurants and seaside entertainment around with rides and attractions for all ages. You'll also discover scenic countryside, quaint villages including Gorleston-on-Sea and the delightful village of Hemsby.

The meals are excellent, fresh vegetables, fruit and such a variety of meals. The residents are all lovely, they are my friends. I know I wouldn’t have managed if I was still at home.
