Ivy Lodge Internal

Inviting, Comfortable and Spacious

Ivy Lodge is a beautiful large, detached property which is well furnished and offers a homely living environment for children & young people to enjoy.

The home has 8 bedrooms and is set over 3 floors. On the ground floor the spacious hallway provides access to a large lounge with patio doors leading to the sizable garden, a great space for outdoor games. The dining room, which leads to a well fitted modern kitchen, has a large table where everyone can dine together.

A separate quiet room enables children & young people to take their telephone calls in private and access the computer station.

On the upper floors we have 8 bedrooms, some of which have en suites and two of which are for care staff. Children & young people are encouraged to make bedrooms their own by choosing bedding, decoration, posters, pictures, books and adding their personal possessions.

There is a community centre and range of youth clubs within a short walk from the home. There are good transport links with bus routes and a railway station supporting links to larger towns nearby.

The local towns provide a more extensive range of opportunities for children & young people to access. These include schools, colleges and libraries, and a broad range of arts and leisure facilities to support and encourage individual interests.

The home is in a rural area where the children & young people can access the nature reserve and enjoy the local wildlife alongside outdoor activity centres and farms.
