I recommend Staddon Lodge based on my dealings with the Proprietors who actively manage this small friendly home with empathy. Residents are happy, well looked after by kind staff who are considerate of their changing needs. It has a home from home feel and visitors can call in at any time; meals are home cooked and I have always found it clean and welcoming.
