You’ll find us in the outskirts of Farnham, on the borders of Surrey and Hampshire. Situated approximately a mile away from Farnham, our home is surrounded by extensive gardens that lead into Farnham Park.

As well as offering a variety of shops and restaurants, Farnham is known for its historical places of interest such as Farnham Castle, Frensham Common, and Jane Austen’s house. With Farnham railway station nearby, we also enjoy direct transport links into Central London.

Enjoy activities

The home offers a range of activities for residents, including gardening, arts and crafts, literacy lessons, IT classes, healthy eating programmes, and games. We also organise regular outings to local places of interest such as the zoo, the theatre, the cinema, garden centres, bowling alleys, museums and sporting events. You’ll have the chance to be social, get creative or enjoy exercise – you choose.

Group activities aren’t for everyone and you might just want to do things on your own. If so, we can help. If you need support, one option is to find a volunteer to come along with you.

Whatever activities you’d like to do, you can always talk to one of our team about the different choices available to you.

Panay’s story

Panay in her bedroom, smiling at the camera

'My name’s Panay and I’ve lived in a Leonard Cheshire home for several years now. I’m originally from Greece but I moved to the UK when I was young. I’m very happy living here. The staff are really kind and helpful.

'I’ve lived in quite a few other homes and I much prefer it here, as there are so many things to do. We go out a lot — to the theatre, shopping, playing bingo.

'It’s been really nice to develop some interests and be able to choose what I want to do. I love to cook, especially Greek food — my favourite is Moussaka. If I want to cook something the staff will help me to get the ingredients and support me to use the kitchen.

'I’ve also just opened a shop — ‘Panay’s Pampering Market’! I’m selling toiletries to the other residents. It’s great fun.'
