Welcome to Drake Lodge, Tavistock.
Originally built in the late 19th Century, Drake Lodge has a rich history much like Tavistock itself. Fully refurbished in 2010, Drake Lodge is proud to offer older people support and companionship in later life.
We have 17 en-suite rooms and one en-suite flat plus a communal lounge and dining room. We also have a purpose-built function room for activities and presentations, large enough for all residents and volunteers to socialise together.
Drake Lodge is a wonderful place to live where everyone is treated with respect and love. We have an active social committee who regularly organise activities such a quizzes, coffee mornings, speakers and fundraising events.
We are fortunate to be located in the flourishing ancient stannary town of Tavistock, situated on the edge of Dartmoor and just 12 miles from the ocean in Plymouth - we have the best of both worlds. Food and craft markets are often held in the town centre alongside an abundance of cafes and restaurants to choose from. Opposite the house is a bowling green, tennis courts and swimming pool which residents are welcome to use.
‘To avoid disappointment we recommend that prospective residents put their names on the waiting list at the earliest possible opportunity’.
Drake Lodge is managed by Abbeyfield Tavistock Society.
