About The Old Vicarage
The Old Vicarage is a residential home comprising of 10 high-spec en-suite rooms designed for adults with autism and the complex needs associated with it. The service offers a home from home located within a peaceful rural setting in Marshfield near Newport.
The service was opened in 2014 when the building was converted from a 28-room facility to a service with 10 large en-suite rooms, lots of communal spaces, laundry facilities and kitchens. It also has plenty of outdoor space, including allotments, a summer house and chicken coops.
‘We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and calming location. The impact on our son has been a revelation.’ Parent
