The special ambience of the home and its comfortable interior provides a warm and relaxing environment for residents and their guests. The unique character of the home provides an ideal and luxurious setting for a wonderful atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, assisted by our friendly staff, beautiful gardens and the delightful scenic surroundings.
The Old Vicarage is a gracious and elegant listed building, mainly Georgian with Tudor origins that date back over 400 years. It has been lovingly restored and expertly converted to provide comfortable and characterful accommodation for our residents.
The house is beautifully decorated and maintained to the highest of standards; it is also fully carpeted throughout and centrally heated.
“The Old Vicarage is an exceptional place and we now know why it had always been where Mother had wished to move to, once she was no longer able to cope on her own.”
