In the heart of Langport sits a beautiful old house shared by 12 people.
At Huish House we strive to make every day more fun filled, exciting and breath-taking than the day before. This is an easy task when it comes to the amazing people who live here – all of which have learning disabilities ranging from autism, epilepsy, sensory impairment and physical disability.
A major factor in our success are the people who work here. Our team of staff consists of an amazing group of hand-picked people who are not only extremely passionate about what they do, but are also committed, loyal and incredible individuals.
With the training we have undertaken and the ongoing training we continue to receive, we are able to give the right level and right amount of support to each individual living at Huish House.
Each individual living here has a large bedroom, uniquely decorated to their own tastes and styled by their own ideas and personal preferences. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and five of the bedrooms are situated on the ground floor.
The gardens are an impressive size and give us a beautiful view of the Somerset countryside.
We have a newly designed sensory garden with a pond and a vegetable plot where the residents grow their own tomatoes, carrots, and potatoes.
All of the gardens are wheelchair accessible.
The house itself was built in 1883 and is a grand inviting building full of character and charm, boasting original features throughout.
The rooms are large, spacious, tastefully decorated and maintained to a very high standard. We have a large kitchen, a laundry room and two large dining rooms.
Our large kitchen is an important room for us as everyone who lives here loves to spend time in there with the support of staff, using numerous daily living skills while baking cakes, cooking food and creating masterpieces.
