Hereford Station offers direct train services to Birmingham, Worcester, and Shrewsbury. The closest bus stop is a 3-minute walk to the Three Elms Inn which connects a comprehensive bus network to the wider Herefordshire region.

The proposal for a new 80 bed care home split across two floors will address the needs of Herefords care bed need. Areas of landscaped communal gardens are planned surrounding the care home to promote active lifestyles, comfort, relaxation and stimulation.

The new build care home will include a number of facilities that will include:

  • A range of Dayspaces/Cinema/Library
  • Hair and Nail Salon
  • Ancillary facilities, offices and staff spaces
  • Spacious bedrooms with ensuite (a handful of bedrooms on ground floor with access to the secure gardens
  • Secure, high quality landscaped gardens for residents

Bedrooms within the care home feature an en suite bathroom with showers that have been designed for privacy, safety and accessibility for all residents. Ancillary facilities such as nurse stations, drugs stores and treatment rooms have been located centrally, allowing the staff to monitor the residents. Stores and other ancillary facilities have been located throughout the corridors, reducing the travel distance for staff to the reach the essential equipment.

The proposal has been developed to maximise the benefits of the site, whilst reducing the impact on the neighbouring properties and surrounding context.
