I went to this home for three days after a hernia operation. The care and support I received was excellently. The atmosphere with the staff was very relaxing. They were cheerful extremely kind. I would recommend it all highly.

My Aunt has had the best care and has been very happy in the care home. For the past eight months my father has been terminally ill and has needed constant care at home and I and my family have not been able to spend any time with my aunt but the staff at Ash Lodge have been brilliant in looking after her in our absence and we have been very grateful.

Both my mother-in-law & my friend's mother-in-law were happy, contented, valued, well cared for residents. Personal attention to the very end with a highly caring hands-on owner.
Now my close colleague has had her mother living at Ash Lodge for the past few years & mainly due to the excellent care, good food & relaxed homely atmosphere, she celebrates her centenary next week, 100 & not out yet!
A well deserved congratulations go to the staff members, we shall all be there for the party!
