Merryfield House Nursing Home, Witney, Oxfordshire

Merryfield House Nursing Home is a beautiful Cotswold stone manor house, formally the home of a “Witney Blanket” family. It is set in tranquil gardens on the outskirts of the market town of Witney itself. Built in 1922 it has since been sympathetically converted into a Care Home with Nursing for 19 Residents. The home has 2 areas, the main house with its magnificent entrance hall with sweeping staircase leading directly into the public rooms and secondly, the purpose built ground floor extension for single ensuite accommodation, all with French windows. These are connected by a tasteful glass and wood connecting link corridor with a tastefully designed lounge area. The main lounge is very pretty with a characteristic inglenook fireplace and offers lovely views of the garden. Merryfield House has twice been awarded the Investors in People Accreditation of which we are very proud and also the top CQC rating of "Excellent”.

All staff are trained to a very high standard with either NVQ level 2,3 and 4 in Care and Management plus Customer Care and training in Hospitality which will give you that little bit extra as they care for you and your families.

Thank you so much for sending me the photos of Dad. I thought the Summer party was a great success and although Dad wasn't able to join in fully we both had a very relaxed and happy afternoon together eating delicious food and sipping Pimms. He even managed a little smile for Miss Oxfordshire. Thank you to you and all the staff who care for him and for your efforts in including him in the life of Merryfield. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support and kindness which is shown to me each and every week when I visit Dad. It is very hard seeing my wonderful father gradually decline, now a mere shadow of the man he used to be. Your friendship and concern mean a great deal to me. I feel my father is a real part of the community at Merryfield and whilst he is still with us, I feel a part of that community too. With very best wishes and thank you again.

Merryfield House Nursing Home

Merryfield House although at the top of the price range was the only option having researched other homes. Small, homely, well run. Very caring and friendly staff, informative and easy to talk to. Kept me up-to-date with my mothers health issues. Big enough to cope small enough to care.

This is my first experience of a "care home" and so far it is has been a happy one and I can't see it changing in the future. The staff are all amicable and very cheerful ( most important!).

I find Merryfields to be a happy, friendly home with caring staff that have worked there for a long time. The home is always cleaned to a very high standard and nothing is too much trouble. It is always nice to be greeted by happy smiling staff.

We highly recommend the above care home. Every single member of staff is totally committed to making my aunt as comfortable and happy as possible. Without Merryfields caring staff and warm ambiance I doubt whether my aunt would have reached her 100th birthday. Needless to say, all the staff got together to give her a wonderful party with a delicious buffet, beautiful cake, singing, dancing and a gorgeous book of memorable photographs.

My mother has been extremely happy at the home and enjoys the social contact. The staff are very friendly although a number of staff have changed recently. This was by far the best home I viewed prior to my mother entering. The social activities are excellent.

I have been visiting Merryfield with my PAT dog Storm for about 9 years. It is such a welcoming place with a warm friendly atmosphere. There is always something happening: garden parties, singers, keep fit, craft work, classic films etc the residents have choice. So important as part of their independence. Clean, great food and lovely staff. Carers who really care and a home from home for those who need it.

The staff always offer a warm welcome and a cup of coffee. With others I take a Church service once a month and I go in each week to do a Bible study for some residents. As I say there is always a warm welcome and participating residents are gathered ready for our short time together. Frequently the residents themselves comment on what a wonderful place Merryfield is - the care, the meals and the fact that their visitors are invited to stay for lunch etc.
