Main Building

Nestled beyond the cottages, as you journey along our drive, is the main building, which has 34 rooms for residents.



Located in the heart of the Homes, the rooms in the main building offer a greater level of support for residents that require it. Each resident has their own room, which they can furnish as they please, and direct access to the common areas including a choice of 3 lounges and our dining room.


Every room looks out on to the gardens and most have doors opening directly on to the gardens.

The modern facilities provide a bed-sitting room for single Residents or can be combined to make separate sitting and bedrooms for couples.

In addition, all our rooms offer:

  • private en suite facilities

  • digital television,

  • direct dial telephone (optional),

  • emergency call bells,

  • WiFi connection and much more.

Community living

The main building also houses our central dining room, three lounges, one with coffee and tea making facilities for anyone to use, the kitchen, hairdressing facilities, laundry and administration and management offices. Last, but not least, we have central wet rooms and assisted bathrooms complete with all appropriate lifting equipment.

The main building is the heart of Bernhard Baron Cottage Homes where all residents are welcome to gather for their main midday meal, for activities, to listen to music, watch a film, join in a religious service or simply to come and read a newspaper.


We realise that residents needs can change over time, and are flexible to meet those changes. In fact, we often find that residents start by living in a cottage and move to the main building when their care needs increase or if they become less able. We work with you to decide if and when the time is right for you.
