Staff were helpful, patient and kind. My father has enjoyed 2 visits of respite care at down house and has requested a repeat next year. Dad has an excellent appetite .Foods good, with great variety and portions large enough for a good appetite. Dad is in his 90s now and has severe disability physically from a stroke, however his mind is pin sharp and he told us he was kept entertained and well looked after. The rooms are lovely and gardens they look upon are beautiful . Foxes and badgers are often seen in the summer evenings in the grounds.
