Enjoy an independent, fulfilling retirement

Abbeyfield South Downs is an independent charity and a member of The Abbeyfield Society a national charity providing houses and homes to older people throughout the UK. Together we are one big family.

We have six supported living houses for older people, located in Alfriston, Eastbourne (two houses), Heathfield, Hove and Tunbridge Wells. We offer a peaceful, friendly atmosphere, with our aim to make life a little easier for our tenants. 

Living with us, you can enjoy your preferred mix of independence and company, with home-cooked meals provided each day. Enjoy dining together and mix and enjoy a chat when you want to in our communal lounge. 

Our houses are designed to help you remain independent, whilst offering security, support and companionship.
