Luxury Living at Abbots Wood Manor

As you step through the threshold at Abbots Wood Manor, you'll be met with a warm welcome and the scent of warm cakes and coffee from our bistro. The bistro is open to our residents and their loved ones, as well as the local community. 

Within our beautiful home in Hailsham, you'll also spot our wellbeing and beauty salon, created to give residents a luxurious space to relax whilst treating themselves to a pamper session or hairdressing.

In our private fully stocked bar, residents can come in to indulge with their friends or family, enjoy a nightcap or celebrate a special occasion.

You'll also find our in-house deluxe cinema, where residents can immerse themselves in the stories being told through the big screen. Residents can sit back and enjoy films of their choice with popcorn in hand.

Relax in the comfortable environment of our spacious lounges. The double height windows allow an exceptional amount of natural light into the rooms - the perfect place to sit back and get lost in a book.

Upstairs, in the Treetops Lounge, residents enjoy visiting entertainers, wellbeing sessions and more with beautiful views over the Cuckoo Trail. Treetops is also a wonderful location for family celebrations, where residents can enjoy private dining and play host at a dinner party.

We have an abundance of breakaway areas, including a quiet lounge on each floor. Outside, the beautifully landscaped gardens are a sanctuary to enjoy the peaceful surroundings or socialise at barbeques and parties in the courtyard patio.

At the end of a busy day, there's nothing like falling into your own warm and comfy bed. Abbots Wood Manor's generously sized bedrooms are all complete with the best en-suite facilities and walk-in showers. Our fully furnished, interior designed bedrooms are tastefully decorated with a luxury finish, and can also be personalised with the resident's own furniture and belongings, making it truly feel like home.

The Homemakers of Hamberley

We believe it’s the people that make a loving home. That’s why our carers are so much more – they are Homemakers. 

At Hamberley, our innovative, award-winning model of care is built around our Homemakers - a carer with a difference. Our Homemakers are not only carers, but also housekeepers and companions, providing holistic, person-centred support to our residents. Living our pledge to deliver 'Extra Special, Every Day', our Homemakers focus on the little things that make each of our residents unique and customise their care to individual needs. 


Dining & Nutrition

Variety is the spice of life, and our resident chef ensures that we serve a wide range of meals catering for every taste and diet. Our carefully planned menus offer well balanced wholesome meals, where traditional dishes feature alongside international cuisine and include varied seasonal options, every day of the week.

We know that being able to sit down together with friends and family to enjoy a nutritious homecooked meal is the foundation of a happy and vibrant home life. So that's why our team members are committed to making every mealtime an enjoyable experience for all our residents. Friends and family are welcome to join and dine with us for a small extra charge. 

We regularly adapt our menus to suit food preferences and changing nutritional requirements. As part of our personalised care package we work together with our residents and / or their families, for nutritional profiling and meal planning to ensure they are always well-hydrated and well-nourished.

Wellbeing & Lifestyle 

Happiness and harmony are at the heart of our home life, and we have a designated Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach to ensure that we create a nurturing and stimulating environment for everyone, residents and staff alike.

We advocate activities that promote physical and mental wellbeing, but we don't believe in waiting for an Activities Coordinator to organise them. Our Homemakers support our residents to continue with their hobbies or pursue new leisure activities, when they want to and not as part of a set timetable. 

Working together with our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach, all of our residents benefit from a personalised Wellbeing Programme to ensure we create a supportive and nurturing lifestyle. 

To find out more about our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach, and our approach to wellbeing at Abbots Wood Manor, contact us to arrange your visit.

Part of the local community in Hailsham

We aim to be the best care home in East Sussex, and have spent a long time creating a community of residents here who have real, genuine connections with each other, as well as their neighbours in the local area.

Abbots Wood Manor lies on the Cuckoo Trail, an old train route pathway which is a wonderful place for walking and enjoying the fresh air. We regularly enjoy outings to local attractions as part of our activities programme, including visits to Hillier Garden Centre for lunch, trips to the coast at Birling Gap to enjoy the views of the lighthouse with an ice cream and shopping trips to Bexhill and Eastbourne. The weekend Farmer's Market on the cattle auction site is a favourite destination.

We are proud members of the local community of Hailsham, always delighted to get involved in events and activities in the area such as the Lord Mayor's Concert in the church grounds, and every few months, the vicar from Hellingly Parish visits for a service.

Every week, the Head Chef runs a baking afternoon - carrot cake is a firm favourite - and we welcome performers, speakers and visitors to entertain the residents. We host monthly Dementia Cafes and Parkinson's groups, open to members of the local community, carers and our residents.

The beautiful scenery, relaxed lifestyle and access to the coast at Eastbourne makes Hailsham a truly idyllic location.

Whatever you need to live the life that you want, you'll find it at Abbots Wood Manor.

Each Family & Friends Lounge includes a clear floor to ceiling screen which allows visits to take place without the need to wear masks and other forms of PPE, and a state of the art amplification system which means that you'll be able to share news and have a good catch up with crystal clear sound - watch our video to find out more about the Family & Friends Lounge here:
