Quince House is a relatively modern detached house situated in a quiet residential area, providing accommodation for six service users in six bedrooms. Five of these bedrooms are en-suite with a shower. There is a dining room which has patio windows overlooking the rear garden; where there is ample space for all service users to eat together. It is also used as an area where service users can develop independent living skills individually or together. There is a well-equipped large kitchen and a separate laundry room. We have an attractive, peaceful and secluded rear garden which lends itself well to seasonal activities - for example; barbecues, garden parties, sports, trampoline, etc.

Quince House is located within a quiet residential area of Hemel Hempstead. The service is a short bus journey or drive to the town centre, where there are many shops, restaurants, hairdressers, jobcentre, cafes, doctors, dentists, colleges and other amenities. Quince House is also a short drive away from Jarman Park; where there is a cinema, bowling, swimming and ice skating. A number of day centres are also a short drive away. Hemel Hempstead is located just off junction 7/8 of the M1 and is roughly 25 minutes from London by car and by train.
