Our Home

Home close is in a quiet location on the outskirts of Cambridge yet within easy reach of the A14 and served by good public transport links. It is set within its own large landscaped grounds that are bordered by many mature trees, creating a private peaceful environment.

The bright, welcoming purpose built accommodation at Home Close is laid out over two floors with a number of attractive wings. Each wing contains a lounge and dining area as well as kitchen and bathroom facilities. The light, airy bedrooms are decorated to a high standard and exceptionally well furnished, but we encourage our residents to bring items of their own furniture and possessions with them  so that their room can become truly their own.
