Type of property
Bayberry Close is a modern semi-detached house where people are welcomed and supported to live independent lives.
The house is wheelchair accessible and has four bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen, dining room, laundry room and a large, shared bathroom. Outside there’s a lovely accessible garden for spending time outdoors when the weather is good.
When you choose supported living, you’re choosing to live independently, safe and secure behind your own front door. There’s peace of mind in knowing the Lifeways team is on-hand, providing tailored support that helps people to lead more fulfilling lives, surrounded by like-minded people.

There is no set routine at Bayberry Close and people choose how they would like to spend their time. They all get on well and enjoy socialising at home and out in the community.

Valued in your community
There are few things more rewarding than feeling like an active and valued part of the community. Bayberry Close is in a residential area and is only a short walk from the main high street. Bedlington has supermarkets, a post office, cafes, takeaways and pubs, as well as a local market every Thursday. Blyth is a 15-minute drive away and offers larger shops and amenities and has a popular quayside and promenade lined with brightly painted beach huts.
For people who like to stay active, there are some beautiful parks and outdoor spaces nearby like Plessey Woods and Gallagher Park, with a recently refurbished leisure centre open all year round in Blyth.
“Bayberry Close is nicely situated close to the coast in Bedlington which is a really pleasant town. Blyth is easily accessible for all amenities and there are a few shops in the local area. It’s a really friendly service with a nice calm atmosphere.” Manager, Bayberry Close
