Welcome to our house

Built in 1900 and renovated in 1958, Ridge House is a converted three-storey building with seven single studio rooms, located in St-Leonards-on-sea.  At Ridge House you’ll find us to be like a traditional family home, with caring, professional staff who are dedicated to ensuring that they support our residents to remain as independent as possible and create a friendly, warm and homely feel to the house.

Meet up with friends or family in our beautiful front and rear gardens, or make new friends with other residents over lunch and supper in our communal dining area. We also have house cats, which adds to the homely feel of the house and closely holds the values and principles of our founder Richard Carr Gomm.

Ridge House is located in St Leonards-on-sea, a traditional seaside resort with a collection of Victorian buildings and vibrant gardens which go all the way into Hastings, which is only a mile away. It has a shingle beach with time-honoured fish and chip shops,  and a Victorian cliff railway which offers amazing views all the way to Beachy Head and the English Channel.

A good starting point is to walk along the promenade to the Victorian Pier where you can watch the boats and yachts coming in. No trip to Hastings is complete without visiting Hastings Castle, Net Shops – tall black wooden sheds built to provide a weather proof store for fishing gear that was previously used by the fishing community, or Alexandra Park, where you’ll find a boating lake, tennis courts, miniature railway and fishing reservoir; so there really are lots to keep you busy and entertained in the local area.

Ridge House is managed by the Abbeyfield South Downs Society.
