The grounds of Otterhayes are contained within 4 acres of Devon countryside. There are large lawns and walled gardens where residents can enjoy outdoor games such as badminton, rounders, football or maybe just somewhere to relax.
As well as the houses on site, there are also other buildings which can cater for different day care activities and hobbies.
The art room is equipped with all manner of paints, materials and paper where the residents can express their creative side. Every Tuesday and Wednesday the support and care residents are able to attend art sessions, that enable them to come into touch with their creative skills and do a bit of independent learning.
Next to the Art Room is the Community Building. This is a log cabin style building used for various different activities. The main role is as a drama therapy room. One group has been lucky enough to receive funding from various sources and is in the process of making a short movie. Details of this and a preview can be found at https://thesilverhawkfilmproject.org/
It is also used for things like; dance, discos, watching films on the big screen, karaoke, parties and meetings.
Situated in the garden, we have two purpose built timber clad bulidings which serve as an office for the managers/deputy manager and a meeting room.
