Communal areas - Two Cedars has a spacious lounge which is the meeting place for morning coffee, afternoon tea and the varied and interesting activities and entertainment program which is advertised on the residents' notice board which is situated in the hallway outside the lounge. Residents' meetings are also held in the lounge to discuss topics of interest and decisions which are of interest to residents. The lounge is for use of both residents and their visitors and patio doors open onto a substantial patio area which is enhanced by a mature magnolia tree. During the summer months the patio is used for residents' enjoyment and to provide access to the half acre of mature gardens, flower beds and lily pond.
A lift provides access from the ground floor to the first floor and residents can be accompanied by staff when using the lift if they so wish.
