Our Homes

Holly Tuft

Holly Tuft is an Ofsted registered, beautifully restored miners' cottage just outside Blakeney in the heart of the Forest of Dean. It provides home for up to four clients. They each have a single-occupancy bedroom that they can have decorated to their own liking and are encouraged to personalise.

Both staff and clients have fond memories of Holly Tuft, which we've been running as a residential home for young people since 2001. Two years ago we had the property renovated and refurbished. It has been decorated to a high standard and equipped with modern facilities. It is reached via a single-track forestry road and set amongst forest plantations.

The surrounding wide, open spaces allow young people to explore and develop in privacy.

Local amenities are only a short walk or drive away. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of these facilities and become involved with the local community.
