Drinks and snacks are accessible for people who live in the home and their visitors to enjoy throughout the day. Sample menus are available if you would like to view them.

On sunny days Olive House has an enclosed accessible, lovely well-maintained garden space. There is a decking area offering seating with flower beds and grassy areas to the side of the home for everyone to enjoy the fresh air.
