Veteran residents in care home

A care home exclusively for the Armed Forces community. 

Set in the popular seaside resort of Cromer, on the Norfolk coast, Halsey House is a beautiful historic building which was used as a hospital in the First and Second World Wars. The residents’ shared experiences in the Armed Forces create a truly unique and supportive community, where everyone looks out for one another.
