Barnstaple Old People's Housing Association Ltd, Pilton House, Pilton Street, BARNSTAPLE, Devon, EX31 1PQ
"Pilton House is a spacious Georgian mansion with south aspect and a fine view of Barnstaple to the hills beyond. For two hundred years it was the home of families with such distinguished names as Incledon, Chichester and Bassett. Then in 1946 a group of local benefactors formed the Barnstaple Old People's Housing Association Ltd., which is a charitable trust, and by voluntary subscription raised the funds to buy the house in 1948 and convert it to a home for elderly people."
Our aim at Pilton House is to allow residents to lead a full life according to their own habits and wishes in a pleasant and companionable atmosphere.
Accommodation is available for twenty-seven residents in single rooms with washbasins, many with ensuite toilet facilities. All rooms are furnished with bells for emergency calls, T.V aerial sockets and several have telephone points. Residents are allowed to bring personal possessions such as pictures and ornaments, which will give their rooms a familiar character.
Communal rooms include a spacious lounge, with colour T.V., music centre and piano, a dining room, and a games room which contains a snooker table. Extra facilities consist of a well equipped hairdressing salon, chiropody and a 250-book library which is regularly restocked.
