Norwood was built in the 19th Century for a rich businessman – a sea captain of a local vessel.

The building was then used as a religious retreat called Shalom in the early 20th Century. Shalom, a Hebrew word meaning ‘peace’, the building had no televisions or radios within the building in order to maintain a peaceful atmosphere. Before the retreat closed, there was only the maid living in the sea captains old house.

At Norwood House, we are keeping the tradition, ensuring that the home is a peaceful atmosphere. A place where all residents and relatives are able to feel relaxed throughout their stay.
