Admire the outdoors
Houndswood House is surrounded by a lovely garden, ideal for a relaxing stroll or sitting out in the sunshine. We also have raised beds which some of our residents enjoy tending to.
There is also a patio with outdoor seating where we regularly serve afternoon tea, and meals when the weather is fine. In the summer we hold many activities outdoors, including garden parties and barbeques.
Can residents do their own gardening?
While many of our residents are happy to sit back and enjoy the garden and the wildlife, some of our more green-fingered residents love to get stuck in. We encourage them to plant flowers and vegetables for all the residents and staff to enjoy. And our raised beds mean that wheelchair users are also able to join in with the gardening.
