About Thistle Hill Hall
Thistle Hill Hall is located just half a mile from the busy market town of Mansfield Woodhouse, and 1 mile away from the bustling town of Mansfield, the second largest town in the United Kingdom. The building dates back to the 17th Century and has a varied and colorful history, having been built originally as a Manor House for a local coal board official before being used in later years as a convalescent home following World War II and more recently as a nursing home before coming into ownership of the current owners who undertook extensive refurbishments in order to restore many of the original features and bring the building back to its former glory.
Thistle Hill Hall has 18 bedrooms, all with en-suite toilet facilities. Each room is exceptionally large, with ample space for a double bed, wardrobe, desk, arm chair, chest of draws and desk chair. Five of these rooms have additional kitchenette areas for those clients who are able to maintain higher levels of independence. Two rooms have full en-suite shower facilities.
Thistle Hill Hall also has two rehabilitation flats with kitchen area, seating area, bedroom area and en-suite shower facilities. These flats are used by clients who are nearing the end of their rehabilitation. Clients in these rooms are encouraged to prepare their own meals, and provided with a weekly food budget for them to manage.
To compliment the excellent array of rooms on offer at Thistle Hill Hall, there are a number of large, spacious and luxurious communal areas, providing a homely-family orientated feel to the building. There are two large lounge areas, one on the ground floor with ample seating area for 30+ people, and a second on the first floor which has wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Each lounge has an accompaniment of audio-visual equipment, including widescreen TV, DVD player, computer games consoles and stereo systems.
Our dining facilities are located in the rear section of building, with panoramic views of the garden and woodland areas. Adjacent to this room is our large Activity Room, with full sized Table Tennis, Pool and Football tables, which clients have access to at all times.
In addition to these communal areas, and the extensive external grounds which provide over 9 acres of wildlife filled surroundings, Thistle Hill Hall has a full sized training kitchen for clients to cook their own meals, bake and learn new skills, along with an additional kitchenette on the first floor which houses laundry facilities for our clients.
In addition to these services Thistle Hill Hall also offers an Art Therapy room and a gymnasium with a range of fitness machines to help our clients maintain, or regain a healthy lifestyle.
