Abbey Lea

My mumís well being is paramount to the staff at Abbey Lea. They are totally dedicated and friendly and treat everyone as an individual. It is like an extended family. The staff really are great.

It never smells either! Everywhere is perfectly clean.

There are lots of activities which we enjoy as much as mum! Parties, fairs and celebrations.
