Situated in the peaceful village of Great Ellingham, Westward Barns is conveniently located just a few minutes from the market town of Attleborough and half an hour from Norwich.

Our independent studio apartments are designed to be a safe, personal, home-from-home. Each feature their own life skills kitchen, lounge, bedroom and ensuite bathroom, all especially designed to maximise the learning of daily living skills.

Communal areas enable individuals the space to socialise with each other outside of their own independent studios. Depending on the individuals’ interests, there are ample opportunities to take part in actives such as: cookery classes, art classes (in our craft studio), animal care (with our sheep and chickens) and the chance to garden in our grounds and greenhouses.

The spacious design and setting of Westward Barns allows people the opportunity to live as full and rich a life as possible with as much support from caring staff as each individual needs.
