The Lodge Care Home Portway, Langport, Somerset, TA10 0NQ


 The Lodge, is a substantial detached house standing in its own grounds next door to Immacolata House in Langport. The home which provides care and support to individuals with learning disabilities, is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has views across the Somerset Levels.

The ground floor has been designed for people with learning disabilities and complex behaviour. Equipped with en-suite shower room/wet rooms and separate toilet and wash hand basin, the rooms have been thoughtfully equipped with electronic blinds housed inside double glazed units.

A reception area adjacent to the office leads to an activity room, a lounge and a well equipped kitchen and dining room. Upstairs there are further bedrooms which have ensuite facilities and a bathroom. One of these bedrooms can be used as a guest room so friends and family can come to stay the night and there is a substantial basement with plenty of storage space and a well-equipped laundry. 

The building underwent major renovation and refurbishment in 2010 and completed to a high standard. It is fully fitted out with comfortable, durable, safe furniture. The building is insulated to a high standard and uses an underfloor heating system. 

The Lodge is perfectly configured to allow someone to retain some independence – a self contained unit yet close enough to feel supported by the community of Immacolata House right next door.

At the rear of the house is a large secluded private garden with a large lawn, patio area and summer house as well as a vegetable garden and a wildlife area. There is ample parking to the front of the property and an adjoining garage

When coming to your new home we encourage you to bring the little things that matter to you; the things that make a place a home.
