The Abbeyfield Housing concept began in England in 1955. All Abbeyfield societies, whether international, national, or local, operate according to the "guiding principles" of the Abbeyfield movement, foremost of which is that older people have an important role to play amongst their families, friends, and in the larger community outside the home.

Abbeyfield Houses are retirement homes with a difference. They offer a warm, family-style residence that allows you to find companionship with privacy, security with independence.

 

Abbeyfield St Peter's was built in 1988 on property leased from St Peter's Church. It is operated and supported by a Board of Directors and other volunteers, from the surrounding community.
