Welcome to our house

Located in the picturesque village of Alfriston, Abbeyfield House is a purpose-built house constructed in 1985. It comprises of nine single occupancy en-suite rooms all with easy access to the beautiful gardens which surround the house. All of our rooms come unfurnished, allowing you to add a personal touch to your room and bring your favourite items from home.

The house has a large, open plan dining room and conservatory/lounge area, that is full of light with a lovely homely feel and ample parking for visitors. The house is situated next to the local primary school and just a five-minute easy walk to the village shops.

What makes our house special is its quiet location which provides tranquillity and peacefulness, but we also have a strong house community where tenants socialise together for coffee and meals. We want our residents to feel like this is their home from home by providing a friendly atmosphere where residents can remain as independent as possible, but have help and support from our caring and compassionate staff when they need it.


Our house is only a short walk away from the village shops, doctor’s surgery and local amenities. The village of Alfriston offers a bustling and warm community spirit with many groups and organisations for you to be a part of, along with a regular bus service to the towns of Lewes, Seaford and Eastbourne.

Alfriston is a picturesque village at the foot of the South Downs national park. The village’s picture-postcard views are a tourist attraction during the summer months with its traditional pubs, tea rooms and restaurants - ideal to spend the day out with visiting family and friends.

House life
