The home has been established for over 30 years. The present owner Mrs Sandra Daniells RGN took it over in 2009. It is one of the few smaller family run homes in the area, which means it can still provide the personal touch, often lacking in larger corporate run establishments. There is a close knit and dedicated team of staff, headed up by Nicky Hunt the Registered Manager who has many years of experience in care of the elderly.
Bedrooms vary in size and outlook and this may be reflected in the price but all are regularly redecorated and re carpeted to ensure the highest standards of quality are maintained.

There is an assisted communal bathroom on both levels, so as to enable all residents to be able to enjoy a bath or shower with assistance from our trained carers.
Our dining room is separate from the lounge and is a pleasant and attractive area for residents to enjoy home cooked meals amongst the company or in their rooms if they wish.
Meals are cooked fresh daily on the premises by our own chefs, and we provide a balanced and nutritious range of meals, but always with residents’ individual preferences being taken into account.
