About the Home

Built around 1827 just outside the beautiful village of Tiddington near the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, Alveston Leys was once the home of Lord and Lady Docker. Thankfully, this four-storey Georgian house still has a lot of its original features, including a majestic staircase, large windows and fireplaces.

We make the time to welcome new residents and find out exactly what sort of activities they enjoy and also suggest some they might like to consider.

We have a broad range of activities to choose from, including yoga, arts and crafts and even chocolate tasting! All events are designed to help and encourage those that are less-able, so no one should feel left out.
