Astell House is a relaxed, supportive and comfortable residential home, providing peaceful accommodation and care for up to 36 residents.

Located in a quiet street within easy walking distance of Cheltenham town centre and a short walk from Waitrose, Astell is the youngest building in the Lilian Faithfull Homes group, constructed in 1910 as a boarding house for teachers of The Cheltenham Ladies’ College, and was commissioned by Lilian Faithfull herself while she was the Principal.

A comfortable lounge, airy dining room and quiet library look out onto delightful private and secure gardens.  All floors are accessed by the lift while at the heart of the building there is an attractive wooden staircase. It is set beneath a beautiful cupola, which floods the stairs with light. All bedrooms have en-suite facilities and residents can access the internet via a wireless connection in every bedroom. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own furniture and decorative items.

Astell House has a vibrant activities programme both within and outside the home. Residents can gather daily for sherry and drinks before lunch and a ‘cooked breakfast club’ meets twice a week. Group trips take in the lovely countryside and pleasant market towns within an hour of Cheltenham. One-to-one trips can be arranged for those who wish to do some shopping and have a coffee in Cheltenham’s town centre as well as theatre visits for those who wish to enjoy live performances.

Breakfasts are taken in residents’ bedrooms and lunch can be taken privately or in the ambiance of Astell House’s dining room. Meals are cooked on site using fresh ingredients, and produce from the residents’ vegetable garden is often incorporated into the menu. All the delicious cakes are made on the premises and the catering team are skilled at accommodating different dietary requirements to meet residents’ individual needs.
