About the Home
At the heart of its village community, you will enjoy the welcoming atmosphere at Townsend House. Enjoy the attractive, peaceful gardens outside, or from inside the bright conservatory. Our friendly, professionally trained staff team is on hand around the clock to give you the support you need, when you need it so that you can continue to enjoy a fulfilling and independent lifestyle.
We organise an excellent and varied social programme of both 'inside' and 'outside' activities and excursions, arranged by our Activities Co-ordinator around each person's preferences and requests. We will be delighted to help you continue with existing pastimes and give you the opportunity to try something new if you'd like to do so. Whether a group activity, or an individual pursuit, we make sure everyone is able to enjoy themselves to the full.
Our cook and kitchen team pride themselves on offering a varied choice of home cooked meals to suit individual dietary requirements and preferences, always using seasonal produce whenever possible. And of course, family and friends are always welcome to join us.
The best way to find out all we can offer you is to come along, have a chat and see for yourself. Contact us to book an appointment - we will be delighted to welcome you.
How to Find Us
As you come into Mitcheldean on the A4136 Gloucester Road from the A40, you’ll come up to a roundabout with the Lamb Inn on your left hand side. Go around the roundabout and take the second exit up Hawker Hill. Keep following this road until it becomes the High Street when you pass the church on your left.
Just after the White Horse pub and Mitcheldean Town Hall on your right, take the right turn into Court Farm Lane. Follow this narrow road uphill to the end until you reach our car park just in front of Townsend House.
