Merryfield House Nursing Home

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.

Merryfield House Nursing Home

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.

My husband spent the last 7 weeks of his life at Merryfield and I knew he was well cared for. My opinion was respected and as far as he was able he was given a choice. He enjoyed the activities and after spending a long spell in hospital he was very content. Our children were able to spend some quality time with him. I can't fault the nursing staff and carers who are not only good at their jobs but approachable.
