The original building was the local doctor’s surgery for many years before  becoming a hotel and then a care home in 1984. The three-story period  property built of stone with rendered elevations has been extensively  modernised. The accommodation consists of one double and twelve single  rooms all fitted with vanity units and a further two with en suite WC’s  in the original house. All the rooms have been redecorated and  re-furbished, TV points, vanity units installed and a nurse call point  serves each room.

The new wing, completed in November 1996  has twelve single ground floor bedrooms with en suites facilities, TV  points and nurse call points. All rooms either face the golf course or  the enclosed garden. The new wing also has a large dining room/sitting  room, a new laundry, one assisted bathroom (with Arjo Spa Bath) and one  assisted shower room, both with assisted WC’s.

All amenities are close to hand, the  opticians is next door, the dentist is directly over the road, the town  hall and museum is 50 metres away, the library is around the corner and  is opposite the post office. Churches and places of worship are close  and there are many other shops and local hostelries within a few paces  of the home.
