Nestled in a quiet residential street in the historic and bustling village of Abbots Langley, famous as the birthplace of Nicholas Breakspear who went on to become Pope Adrian IV - the only Englishman to ever be Pope, Tannerswood, which is now an Abbeyfield sheltered house, was originally a large family home with ample grounds.
Situated in the heart of Abbots Langley, the house is well regarded and very important to the residents of the local community.
We have 10 en-suite rooms with kitchenettes and two en-suite double rooms with kitchenettes which are suitable for couples. A House Manager is on site 09.00-15.00 during the week and overnight assistants are on site 22.00-07.00 each night to provide additional security and peace of mind. In addition we have seven hands-on trustees with a wide range of expertise supported by a committed and enthusiastic team of other volunteers.
Start the day at your own pace, preparing breakfast yourself; you have your own front door allowing you to come and go as you please or spend time getting to know the other residents in our large pleasant lounge, which overlooks the beautiful, well-maintained garden - the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun or while away the hours over a good book or a chat. Enjoy a freshly cooked lunch and evening tea prepared by one of our friendly team of cooks in the company of your fellow residents, or your own friends if booked in advance. You can be as independent or as sociable as you wish and the well attended open-house coffee morning each Tuesday and talks or other activities organised in the lounge on Thursday mornings give you the opportunities to chat and make new friends.
Conveniently located, we’re just a short walk away from Abbots Langley high street where you’ll discover a varied range of restaurants, post office, gift shops, bank, churches, doctors’ surgery, pharmacies, barbers, supermarket, to name a few. Neighbouring villages and towns include Kings Langley, Hemel Hempstead, Watford and St Albans. Kings Langley rail station has trains every 30 minutes to London Euston taking 25 minutes and the M25, M1, A41 and A414 are right on our doorstep for those wishing to travel further afield.
