Rocklyn is situated in central Whitley Bay, within a five minute walk of the main shopping street and within fifty yards of the sea front. The home is comprised of two terraced houses, joined at the ground and first floor levels. Rocklyn provides residential care for male and female adults with mental health disorders and mild, moderate and acute learning disabilities.

The ground floor consists of two lounges, a dining room, a kitchen and an activity room. This means that there is a freedom of choice and movement in the communal areas, including space for private meetings with visitors. There are two bedrooms located on this floor, one of which has an en-suite. A bathroom and toilet are also located on this floor for both independent and supported use. On the first floor, there are five single bedrooms, two bathrooms and a toilet, which are easily accessible to all of the rooms.

There are four single bedrooms and a lounge/study area on the second floor. Externally, there is a rear yard area with planters, tables and chairs and which is a popular meeting and relaxation area. The front of the house has two small garden areas and a parking facility.

Due to the layout of the property, there are no accessible rooms at Rocklyn for people with mobility issues.
