Abbeyfield House

With the support of local people and organisations the Abbeyfield Romsey Society was able to open the Abbeyfield House in Mill Lane Romsey in the summer of 1993. The house is provided to meet the objectives of the Abbeyfield Society in giving care and companionship for older and lonely people. The house is conveniently located for access to the centre of this historic town.

What we offer

Residents at Abbeyfield House can lead independent lives in a supportive environment. They prepare their own breakfast but a cooked meal is provided by our resident housekeeper each day at lunchtime and an evening meal is also provided. Volunteers assist in the running of the house providing companionship and practical assistance to both residents and staff. All persons preparing food are trained in food hygiene.

About the Abbeyfield Society

The Abbeyfield Society is a nationwide federation of voluntary local societies, each with charitable status, which provide and manage family sized houses. The organisation was formed in 1956 to provide active, elderly people with their own accommodation within the security and companionship of small households. There are now some 600 local societies which run over 1,000 houses, providing accommodation for over 8,500 residents.

The Abbeyfield Romsey Society is a charity run by a committee of local volunteers, who meet regularly and are responsible to the Housing Corporation for operating the Abbeyfield House, Romsey. The Society is a registered Housing Association.


Abbeyfield House was architect designed to provide modern services and standards within a building which has classic style in keeping with its historic setting. The building has ten bed-sitting rooms with en-suite facilities. Each room has a fully fitted built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers, a wash basin and private shower facilities. In addition TV aerial and telephone connections are provided (subject to British Telecom Regulations) Each flat plus communal areas are serviced by an advanced intercom system which means that help is always at hand should it be needed.

Communal facilities include a small kitchen on each floor where residents can prepare light meals. For those who prefer, or require, the use of a bath there are two bathrooms, one on each floor with the one on the ground floor benefiting from the installation of an assisted bath. A full size lift services the first floor.

A communal lounge and dining room allow residents to take their midday and evening meals together and share in joint activities. A hobby room allows those whose pastimes require a little more room to maintain their interests. There is also a guest bedroom where visiting relatives may sleep.
