We are a care home registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) specialising in:

  • Mental health
  • Recovery from addictions
  • People with an eating disorder
  • Learning Disability or autism

Cherry Orchards caters for both men and women between the ages of 18-64. We have 20 places for residential placements.  No nursing care is available.

We are situated on a small estate within the boundaries of the City of Bristol. Twenty acres of fields and gardens slope down to the River Trym and are bounded by woodland creating a peaceful rural setting within an urban context. The village of Westbury-on-Trym is within walking distance and provides a good selection of shops and services. There is a convenient public transport service to the centre of town where residents can enjoy the cultural life that the city provides.

For more details about a day in Cherry Orchards, we have an article in Thrive’s Growth Point Magazine, Issue 125 Winter 2011.  Thrive is a small national charity, founded in 1978, that uses gardening to change the lives of disabled people.
