Providing Care for the Elderly since 1945

Bernhard Baron Cottage Homes has been providing excellent care for elderly residents, individuals as well as couples, for 70 years. As a charity our care is focused on the residents and does not need to make a profit for anyone else.

We value and encourage independence and we try to provide for all individual needs, including diet and the range of activities. We have two members of staff with special responsibility for helping with personal interests, activities within the Homes and frequent outings.

There are 24 cottages, each consisting of a sitting room, a bedroom, a  bathroom with a bath or a shower, and a small kitchen. Half the cottages are ideal for couples with more space including more closets. Our main building has 34 en-suite bed-sitting rooms in addition to lounges, dining room, facilities such as hairdressing, and the inevitable administration and support facilities. Several of the bed-sitting rooms are particularly suitable for couples.

We provide three course lunches with choices for each course in our state-of-the-art kitchen. Breakfast and tea are served in the dining room or in residents’ own rooms and friends and family are welcome to join everyone for a meal.  The kitchen staff know and respond to the needs and preferences of every resident.

The Homes are set in beautiful gardens with a path designed especially for wheelchairs and for those who need walking aids. The Millennium Path winds through flower beds and wooded areas with benches along the way, offering lots of opportunity to sit and take a rest. A carer will accompany residents who need a little help.

Bernhard Baron Cottage Homes provides residential care and is not a nursing or EMI home. So while we cannot accept new residents requiring nursing or EMI care, we do provide the high levels of care sometimes required by existing residents if at all possible.

Please call or email to arrange a visit. We would love to show you our home.
