This week is designed for seniors looking for an accessible place to rest, recuperate and recharge. Ammerdown provides comfortable bedrooms, beautiful gardens and the opportunity to enjoy delicious meals in good company. The chapel offers a space for private reflection and daily prayer and the lounge a pre-dinner drink or chat over a jigsaw. There is a mix of optional activities such as talks, films, a quiz, a book club discussion and trips out, as well as the opportunity to learn new craft skills. The Spring and Autumn breaks foster real community and many enjoy it so much they return regularly.
