On facing the house there is a gate on the right of you. Through here there is a garden settee and chair with a small table, surrounded by small lights, which allows the area to be used at night. Back on the pavement you will find a small step up, with a pavement leading to a flight of 6 steps up to the front door, There are hand rails on the right hand side and centre of the steps. The small entrance landing is approximately 3 foot deep with a small step up to the main door. On the right of the frame there is a bell to ring for reception, this is the only time you will need to ring. Once you have booked in, you will have an electronic key to enable you to come and go as you please. The key sensor is on the left of the second door. Once the key is presented, there will be an audible signal to let you know that the door has unlocked. There is also a green light to give visual confirmation. The door can then be pushed open. The corridors are all well lit.
In the hall there is a bell on the wall (right hand side) above the guests comments book. This can be used to summon assistance. Opposite here, there is a sideboard with a lamp if needed. There are writing materials here if needed.
The Television lounge
This is to the right of the front door, in here you will find two reading lamps as well as the main ceiling light. Any guests who can't use the dining room because of mobility problems etc. may be served their meals in here. There is a dining table and chairs to seat two people. Guests then use the bell in the hall to summon assistance. The television is a 28 inch screen with surround sound and teletext sub-titles for anyone with hearing loss. Also, there is a comfortable recliner chair.
