What is Caretel?'Caretel' is a service provided for people who have reached a transitional point in their lives.
'Caretel' offers space and support for those seeking to create calm in their lives. It offers the opportunity to relax and take stock of personal circumstances away from the pressures of everyday life. A few hours or overnight stays can be arranged.
'Caretel' is for all ages. Whilst not offering nursing care, it provides the empathy, understanding and emotional support conducive to self healing. There is someone to call upon 24 hours a day.
Guests are invited to share two living rooms which have open views over the large garden. The garden has a summer house and many secluded areas for guests' personal time.
Three bedrooms have ensuite facilities, while the fourth bedroom is downstairs next to a bathroom.
The main house is fully non-smoking.
