Coppice House is a large, detached home set in 4.5 acres of peaceful Gloucestershire countryside near the Forest of Dean, just five miles from Gloucester city centre. The home supports up to twelve men with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions, Asperger’s Syndrome, Down Syndrome and complex emotional and behavioural needs.
Coppice House is divided into three accommodation areas, with seven bedrooms in the main house, four in an adjoining bungalow and an additional one-bed, self-contained annexe, designed for someone who benefits from a more tailored support environment.
The main house is stone-built and set in safe, peaceful, landscaped grounds at the end of a long driveway. There is plenty of communal space for relaxation and activities, including a spacious lounge, a computer room, an activity room for arts and crafts, a sensory room, kitchen and dining room.
The bungalow next door has a living/dining room area next to a spacious conservatory, as well as two bathrooms and a separate training kitchen.
Residents appreciate a minimalist approach to their environment and structure to their day. They enjoy organised activities including cooking and baking, gardening, swimming, keep fit, pool and film nights. Everyone is offered privacy and safety, whilst still enjoying a place in the local community. The home has two vehicles, which are used for local travel and a variety of recreational and educational day trips.
