Stallcombe House and farm is a residential community for adults with learning disabilities based just outside Woodbury in East Devon. We provide a happy and safe work place with a holistic and organic approach to supporting our residents.

We have developed the provision of day services thus enabling more adults with learning difficulties to benefit from this environment and the Willows Unit provides residential care for those adults who have a higher level of complex needs.
