Lawnfield House

Congregational life & Witness, Social Witness


Lawnfield House is a purpose-built 18 bedroom residential care home located in Newcastle. It is set in lovely grounds nestled under the scenic Mourne Mountains. Lawnfield provides 24-hour care for people with disabilities such as physical disabilities, visual/sensory impairments, mild learning disabilities and frail elderly. We offer both permanent and respite placements.

It is an ideal facility for those seeking a break away from home whilst still getting care and attention from trained staff.

Prior to admission the Home Manager will complete an individual care needs assessment to ensure a person-centred plan is in place prior to arrival.

Partnership Working

We work in partnership with all of the Trusts and are registered with RQIA.  Our aim is to provide a high standard of accommodation and care to meet the complex needs of our residents. 


Lawnfield House has 18 rooms, all wheelchair accessible and many with ensuite facilities.  There are 10 bedrooms located on the ground floor and a further 8 bedrooms on the first floor, that is serviced with a passenger lift.  Many of the rooms have mountain views and our exceptionally large lounge and recently refurbished dining room enjoy beautiful sea views. 


All staff are dedicated in delivering a high standard of 24 hour care.  Staff are trained to at least NVQ Level II standard and are provided with a suite of annual mandatory training.  In addition to this, the staff team undertake specific training to ensure residents’ individual needs are met. 


Lawnfield offers Wi Fi in all rooms, public telephone for use, newspapers on request, in-house hair dressing salon and a wheelchair accessible minibus for day trips to the local tourist attractions and shopping centres. 

The staff team provide a variety of daily activities such as crafts, games, pampering and beauty sessions. 

As with all residential facilities managed by the Church’s Council for Social Witness, the Christian ethos is a central part of Lawnfield House and this is echoed with daily devotionals for residents who come from a range of denominations.


Lawnfield chefs are renowned and praised for the excellent food that is served. All ingredients are sourced locally and our chefs prepare all food on site. In addition to nutritious home cooked foods, there is home baked bread and pastries on offer. Individual tastes and dietary requirements are catered for.

Managed by the Presbyterian Council for Social Witness, Lawnfield House is registered and inspected by the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA).
