The village of Sowerby
The village of Sowerby links with Thirsk, but retains its own identity and is set in the heart of 'Herriot Country', the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park to the east. Thirsk is also the Darrowby of the late 'James Herriot' (Alf Wight), famous vet and author.
On Front Street, which is the main road through the village, an avenue lined with trees, is an old timbered house and the historical village church, and over Cod Beck at the southern end is an old packhorse bridge.
Local facilities include a reputable public house and a nursing home. There are several schools in Sowerby -Thirsk School on Topcliffe Road, and also a primary school. The village is within easy access of the A1, A19/A168 for commuting both north to Teesside and south to York.
Upon entering the home through the secure front door, the reception hall is very wide and allows easy access to the Living Room, Breakfast Kitchen and Shower Room. In addition, there are two storage cupboards and also a loft hatch leading to the attic.
The living room is very spacious and will accommodate both a suite and a small dining set if required. There is also a large window to the rear elevation overlooking the gardens.
The breakfast kitchen has been fitted with a contemporary range of base and wall units, integrated appliances which include: refrigerator/ freezer, dishwasher and also a washing machine. There is an electric hob with an oven below and also an extractor fan. The kitchen also boasts an excellent work surface area and a large picture window overlooking the rear gardens with a double-glazed door to access them.
There are also two double bedrooms which are located at the front elevation and completing the home is the wet room. This has been designed for long-term ease and safety and comprises a shower, w.c, wash hand basin, towel radiator and also a window for natural ventilation.
Externally, the gardens are very easy to maintain to the front elevation with visitor parking easily accessible. To the rear, the gardens enjoy a south elevation and fenced borders for security.

There are staff on site who can help you to maintain your independence in a flexible manner, providing the support you need, when you need it. There is also a range of interesting and useful social, health and wellbeing activities held in the scheme that you can take part in if you wish to, such as organised activities to celebrate birthdays or other events, friends gathering for lunch, a craft event, a book club, quizzes and film or TV viewings, or the chiropodist or optician visiting the scheme (dependent on demand).
You decide how much you join in with activities and you are part of the social life of the scheme in a way that suits you. As well as living on a fabulous complex, you and your neighbours and the staff will be part of the community on site and the wider communities of Sowerby and Thirsk. Your family, friends and people from the local community, are free to come and go as they please and so the main communal areas are open during the day for anyone wishing to visit the café/bistro or take part in the social life of the scheme. The residents' areas are protected and accessible only to residents, their visitors and staff, keeping those spaces safe and secure.
Care and support tailored for you, when you need it. Your home and the wider facilities are designed specifically to support you with any difficulties you may have now or in the future and, with care and support services on-site 24/7, living at Orchid House can be the right choice for people with a wide range of care and support needs.**
Services are available to all residents and are provided as part of a service charge. Some services are operated by independent businesses and are not included in the service charge. We have been advised that the Service Charges are £420 p.c.m.
You may at present have little or no need for care and support but are thinking ahead and appreciate the benefits of living within a supportive community in a modern, spacious home with the reassurance that your future care and support needs can be met. Or you may already have care and support needs being provided in your current home at certain points of the day, but recognise that by living in a specially designed apartment or bungalow and having care and support staff on site 24/7 (procured by Thirteen Group), who are able to deliver care in the privacy of your own home, you will be able to maintain your independence for as long as possible. At Orchid House, the care and support staff will be available to support you with flexible care, based on your current requirements and wishes that can adapt with you as your needs change over time.
