Harbour House consists of 28 individual rooms, 1 short breaks room and 2 flats that can accommodate up to 35 residents. Every room at Harbour House has an en suite bathroom/wet room and kitchenette.
The rooms are built across 3 floors and are easily accessed by either a passenger lift or 2 stair lifts.
Every individual and communal room is serviced by a Courtney Thorne call system and residents are offered the option of a neck or wrist pendant for added security and ‘peace of mind.’
There is a specialist bathing system in place at Harbour House to enable every resident access to a bath tailored to their personal needs and requirements.
Wi-Fi is accessible and available to all residents and their visitors.
Each bedroom is furnished by the individual resident to ensure that they can bring their home into Harbour House.
Most of our rooms have balconies overlooking West Bay Harbour. The balconies are large enough to take tables and chairs and many residents also have a selection of planters and hanging baskets.
All rooms have telephone and television installation points that can be set up prior to arrival.
Each room has a selection of power points, including the kitchenette where residents can operate a kettle.
There is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space in each room. A locked cupboard is also provided for residents who wish to administer and manage their own medication.
Our colonnade is a bright and airy seating section that provides a meeting point, a conversation and ‘catching up’ area and a place to watch the ‘world go by.’
The lounge/diner is an open plan space that encourages and inspires friendship and laughter.
Residents and staff are able to access a ‘Quiet Room’ (right) where they can spend time thinking, praying or even considering. This room is used by everyone for a variety of purposes including Holy Communion for those who do not follow the Quaker tradition and is considered to be very special to everyone in Harbour House. Families often use this space if they are a large group and can have ‘special’ time together.
We believe resident’s health, emotional and spiritual well-being benefit by living and sharing areas the of our home together.
All residents are given the opportunity to be involved in the creation of menus, in particular our vegetarian residents and those with specific dietary requirements. Our Head of Catering regularly visits Harbour House residents to ask about recipe ideas and favourite meals. We make sure that everyone is made aware of the day’s menu and the following day’s menu. This means that you can plan your meal for the next day without feeling under pressure if you want to choose something different. We always have a selection of menu options available and will support your requirements and choices. The kitchen prides itself in their use of their Aga and the cakes that are produced certainly support this.

We actively encourage all residents to eat lunch in the dining room as this is an extremely social time for everyone at Harbour House. The kitchen team place a menu on the notice board each day to enable you to request an alternative option if you wish to, they also provide the day’s menu on the dining tables.
