Abbeyfield - Culver House

Supported housing offers affordable, high quality living for people who want to be as independent and self-reliant as possible without the worry of maintaining their own home. We personalise our services to meet your needs so that you can enjoy freedom, security and peace of mind.

Culver House is a retirement home providing sheltered housing in the northern part of Sidmouth town. We are proud to offer older people support, security and companionship whilst remaining as independent as possible.

Culver House came about as a result of a remarkable collaboration between 2 charities, Abbeyfield and Sidmouth Consolidated Charities.

Our home is very conveniently located, with level access to the post office and shops. For those who enjoy the cinema Sidmouth’s excellent Radway cinema is just 5 minutes walk down the road. Bus stops out of town are nearby too.

We have 16 apartments, mainly one bedroomed, on two floors. There is a lift and stair access throughout. All apartments are en-suite with either a walk-in shower or wet room. We also have a communal bathroom on the ground floor which has a bathtub with an assisted seat for those who would like a bath. A kitchenette area in each apartment allows you to provide light refreshments for yourself or visiting family and friends.

On the ground floor, we have a communal lounge, conservatory and garden which residents can use at their leisure to relax, chat or entertain visiting family and friends. We also have a communal dining room where our residents come together for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

In 2013 we had a new garden room added to the grounds for residents to enjoy when the weather is brighter or to have a change of scenery when they fancy. We often use this room for coffee mornings or cheese and wine evenings.
