Most of the rooms at Ivers are much larger than average and those within the bungalows have been designed as bedsits. Communal rooms in the main house include a lounge, dining room and activity/games room. Two of the rooms can be combined into one for larger functions.
Service users visit the village of Marnhull, which is within walking distance of the home, to use shops and pubs. They also travel to the larger towns of Shaftesbury, which is around six miles away, and Yeovil, which is 16 miles away. The nearest train stations are at Templecombe and Gillingham, Dorset. Bus services are limited but the home has a number of vehicles.
