About us

The Abbeyfield Hoylake & West Kirby Society, like all Abbeyfield Societies, is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to making the lives of the older people easier and more fulfilling.

We help people to live independently by providing a range of services, all of which are linked to the local community.

Established in 1964 our houses are situated just outside the centre of the village of West Kirby and in Hoylake, on the south coast of the beautiful Wirral Peninsula.

We are very close to bus and rail services which means getting to and from the houses is very easy, particularly for visitors, a good variety of shops and cafes and also close to a magnificent coast line with a very good promenade – excellent for getting out and enjoying the sunshine and sea air.

Being part of the local community is very important to us and our residents, and we aim to source all of our suppliers locally, particularly for food and beverages.

It is essential that Abbeyfield feels like home and offers home comforts to suit all resident’s needs. Families are welcome at any time (we don’t have visiting hours although we do ask visitors to respect meal times) and we will always try to accommodate furniture and special requests if possible. Our Chefs offer a high standard of cuisine, and are able to cater for specific dietary requirements.

We also take care of the small things such as having your morning coffee in the garden or having some peace in the lounge to watch a favourite TV show.


We host regular celebrations and our dedicated Activities Coordinator also ensures that there is always something interesting going on for our residents to participate in.

Activities can range from trips out to local attractions, gardening, shopping, coffee and quiz mornings, arts and crafts, sing-a-longs, cocktail or wine evenings, and music events – there’s something for all tastes! The list goes on, and continues to grow with each resident’s suggestion.
