The five-acre grounds surrounding the buildings at the Bernhard Baron Cottage are a natural highlight and never cease to amaze first-time visitors who are surprised at their size.


Mature trees, plants, shrubs and flowerbeds provide year-round interest and the grounds provide a tranquil place for residents to stretch their legs and sit outside in the sunshine. All of our accommodation, whether in the main building or the cottages, has direct access to different parts of the garden, including the rose garden and croquet lawn.

Close to the main entrance are two fish ponds, with seating, and there are plenty of other sitting areas throughout the grounds including our Peace Garden, which is a quiet spot to reflect or simply delight in the surroundings.

The Millennium Path encircles our main building and is an accessible pathway for walkers and residents who use wheelchairs and mobility buggies.

Our gardens are maintained by a full-time gardener, who has additional help in the busier seasons. Green-fingered residents also have their own garden area where they can grow flowers, herbs and vegetables.
