A home to call your own

Bishopscourt has been purpose-built with the needs of every resident in mind. Wide corridors and large rooms allow everyone to move around safely and easily – both residents and visitors. A variety of shared spaces cater for all activities, whether it’s reading a book quietly or joining in one of Bishopscourt’s many daily and evening activities.

Large windows infuse the attractive interiors with light, making every room bright and beautiful, enhanced with notices, drawings and artwork by residents and visitors. The overall impression is that this is a happy and welcome place, filled with staff and residents who feel safe and cared for both physically and emotionally.

Spaces to share and spaces to enjoy

Bishopscourt contains 36 private rooms and 12 semi-private rooms (twin rooms), both of which are homely and comfortable. Residents in the semi-private rooms have plenty of individual space to call their own, with lots of room between the beds and individual areas, as well as plenty of storage for personal belongings. All rooms include a spacious and well-appointed en suite bathroom.

Residents can choose between several attractive shared lounges. Many are used for the comprehensive calendar of activities during the day and the evening, but there are also always spaces simply for reading a book, listening to records on a record player, indulging in crafts or simply sitting and enjoying the company of others. One of our lounges also opens to a stunning internal garden.

Bishopscourt is surrounded by beautiful gardens, all of which are available for residents and visitors to enjoy. Even on rainy days, our beautiful Flower Walk allows residents enjoy a walk in nature while staying warm and dry in the building. Drop in and visit anytime and see our beautiful facilities in person!
