Two Trees is housed over three large houses that interlink allowing easy access to each floor including the use of a passenger lift and stair lift. We have 28 bedrooms many of which are ensuite with bath/shower rooms, some have hoist facilities either ceiling or mobile hoists. All bedrooms are individually decorated to the residents requirements. We also have a large garden area which is wheelchair accessible which residents and family/visitors have access to at all times. Two Trees also has two minibuses which can be made available should residents choose this option, both mini buses are wheelchair accessible.
Two Trees is only one mile from the city centre and is accessible via regular public transport. We are a short walking distance from the local shopping village and a large park area which is now home to the Plymouth Life Centre. The local pub is also a very short distance away offering food and beverages.
