Willow Lodge Care Home
This large, well looked after house is full of character. It feels and looks homely. It’s the complete opposite of a modern soulless building. It oozes charm and warmth; it offers large well-proportioned rooms and ample landscaped gardens. It’s a rural setting but not a remote one. The village centre is a short stroll away, the coast a little further, but near enough to enjoy the fresh sea air..
Why shouldn’t you feel you’re in a good hotel, or at large house party with good friends? We’ve planned the ground floor to be the hub of the home, with areas for quiet contemplation with a book or a crossword, areas to watch favourite television programmes or DVDs, areas to enjoy a cuppa and a newspaper, to play a game, to enjoy a chat, to receive your guests and to treat as your own home. There’s even a piano here too.
Have a look at the notice board. There’s always a lot going on: a programme of activities to join in should you wish, and regular outings. Want to look your best for them? No problem. Our services include hairdressing, alongside dental care and chiropody.
If you were planning the perfect care home, maybe it would be something like this. And, if we’ve missed something, we really genuinely want to know.

When you open the front door of Willow Lodge you’ll realise you’re in a very different kind of care home. It has a buzz. People talking, residents engaging. Life is lived to the full here.
Depending on the time of the day, you might smell fresh coffee or home cooking. Our Chef provides wholesome nutritionally balanced meals of variety and quality. Most items are homemade and freshly prepared. Ask to see the menu: there’s always a choice and all dietary needs can be met.
You’ll love the bedrooms. They’re light and airy and well proportioned, able to take some of your own furniture too if you wish it. Most have large windows and good views: the perfect place to unwind. The majority are ensuite, with good quality fittings, scrupulously maintained.
Each upper floor is easy to reach. There’s a lift. No need to worry about the stairs.
Houses of this age need upkeep, and we provide it. The building is maintained to hotel standards. When something needs changing or replacing, it is attended to fast. Most care homes don’t draw your attention to the furnishings or the upkeep, but we want to. If we care about the little things, you know we’re care about the bigger picture too.
