The Lawn is a stunning Georgian residential care home in Alton, Hampshire, which was once the home of the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell.
The home in Hampshire has been renovated to the highest standards and we are proud to provide a warm, friendly modern home full of period charm.
Our residents are very active both at The Lawn and in the community. Many are members of local groups including the Arts Society, University of the Third Age and the National Association of Decorative and fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). We know it is important to everyone stay active as they get older and we will support you to remain independent.
The jewel in the crown of The Lawn in Hampshire is without doubt the stunning grounds. These include sweeping lawns, a shaded wooded area and an enchanting stream which babbles at the bottom of the garden. We know that quality of life is central to happiness and our staff will work you to make sure you enjoy a full and stimulating life.
In our 30 light airy bedrooms we provide en-suite washrooms, a television point and telephone socket. The rooms in the modern extension have fantastic views of the extensive grounds which surround this unique and beautiful house.
