Set in a quiet cul-de-sac, overlooking the beautiful Victorian gardens of Devonport Park, stands Parkwood House a lively home with 46 places. The rooms are personalised to each resident with each front door painted to the colour of the resident’s choice. It is just a short walk from Stoke Village where you can find useful convenience stores, a bank, shops and cafes. Residents also have regular access to Devonport Park’s gardens, cafe, bowls green and community events throughout the year at the Victorian bandstand.
