The home is situated opposite the beautiful Pavilion Gardens and within walking distance from most local amenities including shops and a doctors surgery.

The majority of bedrooms at The Hawthorns have en-suite facilities and the remaining rooms benefit from a wash basin. Each room has a call bell. There are two lifts that go to all floors. There are the lounges with a TV and stereo, a conservatory, an enclosed patio and a sensory garden with well tended grounds. A hairdresser visits the home every week.

The Hawthorn's aim is to provide a variety of entertainment and activities ranging from games, quizzes and bingo to arts & crafts, music and singing. There are visiting musicians, piano players, concert parties and even Salvation Army brass bands.
