The hospital has more than 16 acres of landscaped grounds and overlooks the Bristol Channel. This beachside location, just outside Weston-super-Mare, helps us provide a quiet, peaceful and therapeutic environment which can offer service users a broad range of therapies including CAT, CBT, Schema Therapy, EMDR & DBT.
The hospital provides 58 inpatient beds within a low secure setting, including a male PICU within the same secure perimeter. All bedrooms are single, with en-suite bathrooms, and each of the four wards has its own garden or terrace. There is a fully equipped gym and activities suite.
On the same site at the hospital is Cygnet Lodge Kewstoke, an intensive community rehabilitation service for women, which provides care for informal individuals as well as those who may be formally detained. The Lodge is separate from the main low secure service, and provides the next step in the care pathway from the low secure wards, or a step up from community placements which may have broken down.
Our aim is to help each service user recover and integrate back into the community, as quickly as possible.
