Communal Areas

Residents are free to explore Valerie Manor and settle in their favourite part of the home, choosing to socialise with other residents, meet with visiting friends or family, or simply relax on their own in a quiet area. We’ve a variety of areas to choose from, each with their own character and atmosphere.

Conservatory

Our stunning light and airy conservatory forms the meeting point between our Nursing and Residential wings. With reflective roof glass, a stylish electric ceiling fan and classic white plantation shutters, it’s an elegant and comfortable area to socialise or just sit and enjoy views across the gardens and South Downs. Step out on a summer’s day and enjoy the water fountain or raised planters just a few steps away.

Lounge/Library

Our comfortable lounge, in the original part of the building, features a handsome oak beamed ceiling with large inglenook fireplace.  Attractively furnished, creating a warm, homely atmosphere of informal intimacy. There is also a small ornamental bar where residents have the opportunity to enjoy an occasional sherry if desired and also provides the focal point for our popular “Rabbit Hole Club”. A touchscreen computer in the corner provides easy access to the internet and email.

Study

Our cosy study, with lovely views across the gardens, provides a quiet retreat for relaxing or entertaining guests. It’s also the perfect spot for afternoon tea or a quiet read.
