Welcome to our house

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, Alexander House is a sheltered house located in the heart of Bootle village, on the south west tip of the Lake District.

The home is small and friendly, perfect for people who want to maintain their independence but have the support of staff and companionship of others.

Our fantastic team work hard to ensure the house is comfortable, clean and safe for you, with the emergency 24 hour alarm system offering that added peace of mind.

We organise plenty of events and activities, so there is always something to look forward to if you choose to get involved. We hold chair exercise sessions every Monday, 'Knit & Natter' sessions on a Wednesday afternoon, and a monthly library delivery service. We have plenty of fun at our quizzes and games afternoons, and like to go on regular outings to places of interest such as the local steam train station and Muncaster Castle.

Food is very important at Alexander House, with our cooks preparing and serving a lunch and high tea daily. Residents provide their own breakfast. We can cater for all kinds of different dietary requirements, and vegetarian alternatives are always readily available. Typically, we may serve a delicious roast beef with potatoes and vegetables or a tasty fish and chips for lunch followed by a trifle, ice cream or sticky toffee pudding. In the evenings, you can enjoy a selection of sandwiches, crisps, quiches and sausage rolls. 

Being in the stunning Lake District, we are lucky to be surrounded by some truly beautiful landscapes with the nearest beach just a few miles away. There is a cafe, village shop and post office all located within walking distance of the house. Bootle train station is also within close proximity of the house, should you wish to explore further.
