“People told us they felt safe living at the home, staff were kind and caring and the care they received was good.

One person told us "The care here is superb and makes me feel really safe". - CQC Report Sept 17 


The large Edwardian property sits in beautiful landscaped gardens, on a leafy residential road and is surrounded by Sussex Countryside. The pretty village centre of Balcombe, with its tearoom and pub is at the end of the road.

The Home inside is light and airy with many period features and smells clean and fresh.

The elegant lounge and dining room provide space to socialise over a cup of tea or glass of sherry, play board games or find a quiet place to read a book from our well stocked library. 

All 16 en-suite bedrooms are situated on the ground and first floors, with a lift and access to a large patio and garden via a ramp.  All rooms have phone and TV points and there is free Wi-fi with iPads available for use. Residents are able to bring their own furnishings to make themselves at home, or we can provide furniture, should they not wish to. In addition to the en-suite bathrooms there are two large separate bathrooms with assisted bathing facilities. The third floor contains accommodation for staff. 


A nutritionally focused three course lunch, with alternative choices, and special diets catered for, is often the highlight of the day. Many of the residents get together for an aperitif beforehand. The menu is based on British and International classics, and residents have the opportunity to propose new dishes for the month ahead. Tea and Coffee is served both in the morning and afternoon, with cakes in the afternoon. Although a hot meal is available, most residents prefer a light supper with a choice of sandwiches, omelettes and salads. Residents are encouraged to take lunch in the dining room, but privacy is respected should they not wish to. We cater for special dietary needs.
