Welcome to Bayberry Cottages – a beautiful courtyard setting of stylish converted cottages, surrounded by fields and trees synonymous with the heart of rural Warwickshire.
On the same site as Bayberry Manor, Bayberry Cottages enjoy their own exclusive part of this tranquil site.
Here, you’ll feel part of the family – with up to just 7 people in residence – and separate cottages for ladies and men as well as a standalone large, ground floor en suite room in the main cottage.
The site comprises four cottages, clustered together. Two cottages are accommodation – three bedrooms in each – and with the added benefit of an extra lounge and kitchen, just for each cottage. The third cottage houses staff offices and the medical room, whilst our fourth cottage is large and all on one level – with a huge communal lounge/dining room, communal kitchen (within which all meals are prepared), a group therapy room and a newly appointed large, ground floor en suite bedroom with doors leading out to the sunny patio.
The site is small and compact enough to feel safe, secure and welcoming – but with lots of interesting spaces to be part of the group, or to spend some quiet time.
Bayberry Cottages has it’s own, dedicated and caring team – who provide a full and diverse daily programme of therapy, (with a wide and comprehensive range of treatment modalities).
We truly believe that we have created something very special, here at Bayberry. We welcome visits, by arrangement, to view the site, the facilities and to talk to the staff. We want you to feel comfortable, supported and positive about your future – and will answer your questions and guide you throughout the process.
Family members or professionals are welcome to contact us, too, and we can provide more information on the suitability of our programme for your family member or patient.
Warm and Cosy Cottages
We offer a choice of rooms at Bayberry Cottages, housed within either the ladies’ cottages or the men’s cottage. All of our rooms are single occupancy – with a range of small, single rooms – to single occupancy larger double rooms – to a huge, ground floor en suite room.
Comfort and design are the key factors here within the Cottages – providing an oasis of warmth and tranquility – in which to recover.
Comfortable beds and sofas, antique and period furniture in a ‘country farmhouse’ style, mix with contemporary pieces in vibrant velvets combine to provide interesting and soothing spaces.
Kitchens within each cottage make it convenient to help yourself to drinks, without having to visit the group kitchen – and the lounges provide a place for some time out and peace.
A sunny patio with plenty of furniture provides an outdoor gathering space, while gardens and orchards are a place to walk in the fresh air.
Each cottage has its own TV – and there is also a TV in the communal lounge to watch a film together. Clustered around the courtyard, the cottages provide space with cosiness, the perfect combination.
Relexation and Comfort
Apart from the lounge within your own cottage, there’s also the large communal lounge, with seating and dining for 8, TV and DVD, coloured mood lighting, cushions and throws for added comfort.
This is the focal point of the cottages – a place to gather, chat, play games, watch TV or listen to music. It’s a place to relax, after a busy day.
The large dining table is used for breakfast, lunch and dinner…with the kitchen next door for preparing meals. A varied menu is available, with which clients offer their own input. It’s an important part of our therapeutic community that meals are prepared and eaten together. You’ll often be joined by one of the therapists or support team, so it’s a great chance for an informal ‘catch up’, too.
Out of the double doors, the patio is enclosed by flowering vines (a summer treat when they’re in full bloom) and is ideally located to the front of the cottage – an great gathering place when wanting to sit in the open air and an extraordinary sun trap on summer days.
The lawn to the side of the cottage is a place to stand and gaze into the distance…across fields and to distant woodlands, with an apple orchard to the rear if you wish to wander a little further away to reflect. Depending on the time of year, our vast array of fruit trees provide apples, pears and myriad berries and herbs…as well as our ever popular strawberry patch in season.
The programme – the reason that we’re here
We’ve created a beautiful, comfortable, safe and tranquil place in which to recover – but that’s only a small part of what Bayberry has developed. With highly qualified clinicians, a caring and supportive team, we use our extensive experience and skill to take you on a journey to recovery with an aim that is, quite simply, life transforming.
We understand that the best results are seen when therapies are combined, so we use a wide range of treatments to achieve the best possible outcome. Our programme is well respected and achieves excellent results, ensuring that each individual is equipped not only with a short term recovery model, but tools to continue their recovery for life.
And, of course, it’s not just about the person in treatment. Families become part of the addiction – living through the consequences of damaged relationships, financial hardships and emotional trauma – all common side effects of the life of an addicted person. So, our family programme is an intrinsic part of the recovery journey – and close family members are invited to participate within special family sessions. We recognise and acknowledge the impact that this situation has had on family members – addressing this, too, ensures a strong foundation for the future, for the family as a whole.
And, of course, once treatment is completed, we’re here for the longer term, too. Weekly aftercare is provided, free of charge, for a full TWO years following successful completion of your residential treatment.
Groom’s Cottage is our house for ladies – offering three bedrooms, one is a single room on the ground floor, the other two rooms are upstairs – both are very large double rooms (single occupancy). High pitched ceilings ensure these rooms are bright and airy with a sense of space. Beds are comfortable, and the property interior is largely finished in wood, befitting the heritage of the buildings. A bathroom (with bath and over shower), a lounge and kitchen complete the facilities in Groom’s Cottage – providing more of a suite of rooms, than just a bedroom.
Just three ladies share this cottage – with their own bedrooms, a kitchen and a comfortable lounge with TV. Clients also utilise the large communal cottage (with large kitchen, dining room and lounge for communal living). The benefit of the cottage is having your own private space to which to retreat.
The Coach House is our men’s cottage – offering three bedrooms, one is a single room on the ground floor, the other two rooms are upstairs and are double rooms (single occupancy). Beds are comfortable and the contemporary style lounge with comfortable sofas complete the look.
This cottage is shared by just three men – each with their own bedroom. The cottage also has a lounge with TV, a kitchen and bathroom. This is in addition to the larger communal cottage, just a few steps away, with large kitchen, dining area and lounge in which clients gather for communal living and therapy.
The Garden Room is a large, light ground floor en suite bedroom. Situated in the main cottage, with easy access to all the communal facilities, the Garden Room features an en suite shower room and double doors that open out onto the sunny patio area. Spacious and cosy, this room is a haven of tranquility.
