A professional team has furnished the home to a high standard, providing elegance and comfort.

Residents rooms are spacious and feature en suite facilities. The communal areas are at the centre of what makes Abingdon Court a real community whether it be at meal times or when enjoying activities.
There are no fixed visiting hours so friends and family can come and see residents at any time. The dining experience at Abingdon Court boasts fine home cooking by a professional Chef who has created a menu to reflect the interests and tastes of the discerning residents.
