Oaken Holt is a unique country estate surrounded by 23 acres of landscaped gardens and peaceful parklands. Located in the picturesque village of Farmoor, close to the dreaming spires of Oxford, Oaken Holt offers the perfect blend of tranquillity and accessibility.

Oaken Holt provides assisted living, residential and nursing care across three stunning environments. The main house provides the highest standard of residential and nursing care and The Coach House offers assisted living support for those wishing to retain greater levels of independence. This broad range of care services means that Oaken Holt can truly deliver a care pathway, offering different levels of support to meet changing needs.

Sensitively converted, the main house provides a mix of en-suite bedrooms and full bedroom suites in a remarkable stately home setting that retains a wealth of period features.

Further afield the Coach House development allows residents to live more independently without losing the touch of luxury prevalent in the main house. The stunning grounds are a unique and varied treat. When the weather is fine residents may choose to take a stroll around the grounds, pausing to enjoy the pastoral beauty of the Oxfordshire countryside. Of course, the option to just sit back and savour the views may be just as tempting.

The staff team at Oaken Holt believe that a wide variety of activities and social opportunities are essential to a person’s quality of life and fulfilment.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Tuesday 15 October 2013 by David Beck (relative of residents)

My mum has dementia and dad recently died of cancer in Oaken Holt. I have spent a lot of time there with my parents over the past year and in my view have seen excellence in practice. Both mum and dad have received the most wonderful care. Staff could not have been kinder or more caring.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Thursday 16 May 2013 by Zoe T (Daughter of resident)

The management and staff of Oaken Holt are excellent, caring and extremely conscientious. The environment and grounds are very beautiful and the activities organised by dedicated activity staff such as outings and concerts, art classes and many other activities, are marvellous. Dad is much happier living at Oaken Holt than when he was living on his own after mum died. The atmosphere is loving and very supportive.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Monday 25 March 2013 by Jenny Hogan (Daughter of resident)

My mother has been in Oaken Holt for 2 and a half years, after being widowed, because of her reduced mobility and frequent falls. I have always been very happy with the care and I feel her life has been lengthened considerably, because after years of feeling undervalued, she is in a place where she is loved and wanted. Recently she was extremely ill and we all felt her time had come, the attention she was given was exemplary. All the staff, with Janice at the helm, could not do enough for Mum, she is now back to a level of health and enjoying her days again. I believe it was the care she had which brought her back. She had an issue of concern, it was dealt with in confidence, immediately.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Thursday 7 February 2013 by Colin H (Son of residents)

My parents are very well looked after by the very pleasant and professional staff. One parent is suffering from dementia and the other is recovering from major surgery therefore their needs are quite different. Both however are very well catered for.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Monday 4 February 2013 by Jonathan C (Son of resident)

We have been most impressed by the kind and patient care my parents received from all the nursing staff at Oaken Holt since they were admitted in May 2012. My father died in the autumn of 2012 (aged 97), but my mother (94) still benefits from the nursing and other activities offered by Oaken Hall.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Wednesday 30 January 2013 by Nina R (Daughter of resident (d. Aug 2012))

I have been really impressed by the care, love, professionalism, tact, concern and resourcefulness shown towards my mother, during her 10 months at Oaken Holt. I found the staff easy to talk to, open, honest and kind. I felt that I was involved at all stages and was party to all the decisions concerning my mothers changing care needs. I am also so grateful for the wonderful programme of activities, fantastic. So lovely to attend functions or concerts with my mum and to be welcomed by the staff. Thank you.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Wednesday 30 January 2013 by John E (Son of resident)

I have nothing but high level praise for Oaken Holt. The staff are amazing, both efficient and caring. I visit at different times and at no time have I seen any of the residents being treated with anything but total respect. The food is superb with a wide ranging menu and an excellent head chef. Since his time at Oaken Holt (1 year) the improvement in my father is amazing and that is due to the excellent care and attention he receives!

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Wednesday 30 January 2013 by Andrew L (Son of resident)

The standard of care and commitment over the long term. Attention to detail. It never smells, always clean, if ever anything slips at all it seems to be dealt with. Good food. Welcoming, it is the residents home and we are welcome. Staff always speak English even amongst themselves. Good activity programme. When there was a blip due to a staff change they jumped on it. Recommend wholeheartedly.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Wednesday 30 January 2013 by Margaret T (Daughter of resident)

I recommend this care home to anybody. The home has done a wonderful job with my father. He is having so much care, he is relaxed and I can see he is very happy there. The food is lovely, my father enjoys every bit of it. The home itself reminds me of a hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The home sends me information when anything happens.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Tuesday 29 January 2013 by Kenneth B (Power of attorney to resident)

Oaken Holt is like a 5 star hotel. Clean, well run by the staff on site, caring for the resident. It has the advantage of a good medical wing for those who become in need of such care.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Monday 28 January 2013 by Colin M (Nephew of resident (who is extremely happy))

The excellent team of nurses and carers. The cleanliness and the attention to duties. The rooms are very good and always kept warm. The food is as good as a 5 star hotel. The grounds are unforgettable and all the staff so helpful. All the residents are treated like the individuals they are. I can honestly say that I could not fault a single aspect there.

Review of Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing on Monday 22 October 2012 by Sue H (Daughter of Resident)

The care staff are without exception dedicated, gentle, caring and always prepared to go the extra mile even at busy times. The leadership of the home is professional and approachable to relatives, from nurses and management. Activities in the home are person centred and varied, activity staff take great joy and pride in leading them. 'Feels like a great team'.
