Birling House


Birling House was originally an Edwardian hotel and coach house which has been refurbished and extended over the years and now provides a home for thirty one residents. The home is set in its own grounds close to the village of Snodland.

The house is on two floors and has three communal lounge areas, a dining room, activities suite and a multi-sensory room.  Bedrooms are decorated and furnished to reflect individual tastes and include a TV point and nurse call system.

The garden has been landscaped to allow easy access for all our residents. The home has transport facilities adapted for wheelchair use.
