Tigh Calman

igh Calman, meaning "Pigeons House" in reference to the site's previous ownership, is a six-bedded house set in a 30-acre site with countryside views and a tranquil-feeling environment. The house was converted in July 2017 to become residential care for young adults. The light and airy home benefits from having a large country-style kitchen with a separate dining room and two lounges with open fireplaces.

This home has the space both inside and outside for the young adults who live here to express themselves in a beautiful and safe environment, in order to learn new skills and live a full and active life. All of the bedrooms are generously proportioned and are fitted with their own en-suite facilities.

Many of the young adults living at Tigh Calman access our on-site adult education college "Calman Colaiste", which boasts the best up-to-date facilities to assist learners in the development of the their education and skills. This, in turn, empowers learners to better express themselves and allows them to understand and reach their full potential.

Tigh Calman is situated in the picturesque village of Thorney, which has the advantage of being close to the city of Peterborough and yet have the benefit of a great village location.

Being so close to the environmental capital of England has many benefits, including having more than five swimming pools, six gyms and much more. Peterborough also has one the best cycle networks in England, which enables people to cycle anywhere in or around the city without having to ride on the road. Nene Park offers many miles of cycling and sailing, plus archery, adventure clubs, outdoor classrooms, three playgrounds, a café, restaurant and much more. Peterborough also has a breathtaking cathedral and tower, which are lovely places to stop and watch the world pass you by.

Burghley House, a stunning historical house set in its own estate, is only a half-hour drive away. Enter through the gates and you are transported back in time, taking in how things used to be in the 16th century, or if you prefer you can experience the fun-filled gardens with water park. Film festivals, horse trials, concerts and much more are all held at Burghley House.

Staff at Tigh Calman are highly trained with regular face-to-face sessions in order to ensure that they have the skills to meet the needs of the young adults who live here.

Our young adults have access to a variety of activities on a daily basis that they can choose whether or not to participate in, including organised trips out, aromatherapy and speech therapy, ASDAN, horticulture and animal husbandry.

We encourage our young adults to be as independent as possible, giving them a sense of ownership and belonging. Community presence is also very important to us at Tigh Calman, and we utilise all the amenities available as part of everyday life.
