Type of property
At Barber Gardens, people benefit from a vibrant network of staff and friends, while having peace and quiet when they need it too.
Barber Gardens is a brand new development of 15 one-bedroom apartments and three one-bedroom bungalows with ensuite wetrooms. The accommodation is bright and spacious, with assistive technology built-in and modern rise and fall kitchens with white goods and integrated appliances.
The bungalows are wheelchair accessible throughout, with wide door openings and individual gardens. The ground floor apartments are accessible and there is a shared garden so people can spend time outside when the weather is good.
There is a communal space where people can come together to take part in activities and socialise. We will have regular meetings with the people we support.
