Where you’ll work

 

A stone’s throw from Ayr Beach, our stunning Edwardian home is in a picturesque location. Set in the heart of a leafy residential area, many rooms upstairs in our nursing home boast sea views across to the Isle of Arran.
The older part of the home has period features, including high ceilings, ornate cornicing, bay windows and original stain glass windows. The modern part has views over the glorious gardens, which are exquisite and lovingly maintained. There is a large mature garden at the front and a vast landscaped garden at the rear of the home. Some of the downstairs bedrooms lead to smaller courtyard areas. These are all wheelchair accessible, so can be enjoyed by our residents with greater nursing care needs. Residents’ bedrooms, some of which have walk-in showers, are also beautiful and spacious.
