Vacant Flats

We have a flat available that would suit a couple in our historic Almshouse which occupies a central position on the High Street in Guildford.

The flat is within a 400-year-old building and faces onto the High Street. It is on two floors and has recently been refurbished. It has two large living rooms, kitchen, downstairs WC, bedroom, and bathroom with a 'low profile' shower. We provide an emergency call system.

The flats surround a beautiful communal garden and are within easy reach of local services. Staff work hard to provide a supportive environment enabling residents to live independently.


To be considered for a flat, applicants must meet the following criteria

  • be at least 60 years of age
  • be born in the Borough of Guildford or have lived in the Borough for 20 years or 2 years immediately prior to the date of your application
  • be eligible to receive Housing Benefit or Universal Credit
  • be capable of independent living – able to look after yourself and your home

Please also see the Living Here page for information on what we offer.
