Would you like to live independently, with the privacy of your own accommodation, but in a warm and welcoming communal house? If so then Sarnia House is for you.

Along with great companionship, we offer home cooked meals and the security and support of dedicated house staff. We have multiple rooms currently available and offering viewings for interested applicants.

At Sarnia House we believe in remaining active in retirement and make sure to organise some social activities for our residents including coffee mornings, card crafts and other events that are organised by volunteers.  Built in 1897 and extensively renovated in 2002, the house has 20 studio flats and two additional larger assisted living apartments. Sarnia House prides itself on offering high quality accommodation for older people in a warm and friendly atmosphere, with two delicious home cooked meals a day.

We always try to keep residents as active as they wish to be.  Sarnia House offer a number of activities and events, including coffee mornings, card crafts and outings.  Residents enjoy varied activities at the house, including musical performances, talks, quizzes and more. Volunteers do their best to arrange activities to suit residents' interests.

The housekeeper at Sarnia House will make sure all the residents are well fed with great, locally sourced food.  Residents enjoy sitting together and sharing two freshly prepared meals every day.  All dietary requirements are catered for and we believe that great nutrition is paramount to remaining healthy, active and enjoying later life. Pets are allowed.

We have a number of properties advertised on Keyways however you do not need to be registered on Keyways if you are considering this housing solution for a friend or family member. Call 07710 068814 to discuss their needs and arrange a viewing.

Give your views on Kettering's Keyways Housing Allocation Scheme

Kettering Borough Council is proposing changes to the Keyways Housing Allocation Scheme and we welcome your views.

Each year Kettering Borough Council reviews its Housing Allocation Scheme to ensure it accommodates new legislation, remains fit for purpose and accurately reflects current housing need in the Borough. Annual reviews are also necessary to ensure the Council continues to make best use of social housing stock and continues to meet the duties owed to homeless households.

The proposed changes in 2019 focus on addressing:

  • Legislative changes: The Homelessness Reduction Act 2017
  • Current trends: Increasing use of homeless temporary accommodation and higher demand for family accommodation
  • Anomalies within the scheme: Applicants without a realistic prospect of housing and making best use of our housing stock
  • Applicants who do not qualify: People who have previoulsy behaved in an unacceptable way

For more information on the changes please visit

You can submit comments by email to or you can write to us as The Allocations Team, Kettering Borough Council, Municipal Offices, Bowling Green Road, Kettering, Northants, NN15 7QX.

The consultation starts on Monday 25th March and runs for four weeks until Friday 19th April. Please ensure all comments are sent within this time frame.
