Welcome to Darwin House

Darwin House is an independent living retirement home for older people, situated in the lovely town of Crowborough, East Sussex. It is on the borders of Ashdown Forest, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

About Us

Darwin House is one of the most friendly and cosy homes for older people around. It is situated in Crowborough, a lovely town just on the outskirts of Ashdown Forest. Darwin House has only 8 en-suite rooms, so it’s smaller than many other homes. This gives it a real ‘home from home’ feel, where you can spend the rest of your retirement days.

Make Darwin House your new home, and you will have the choice of enjoying life in the comfort of your own private room, or join other residents for companionship at coffee, meals and activities.
