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.

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.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5.

    The Average Rating of 4.125 for Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing is calculated as follows: ( (7 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.125

A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 3.425 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oaken Holt Care Home with Nursing is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

My Mother has been a resident at Oaken Holt for almost a year now. Having visited a former resident who has now sadly passed away, I was very impressed with the standard of care provided. The resident himself was delighted with all the aspects of care in his new home. It was on this basis that I enquired into the possibility of my Mother becoming a resident.
She has been here since January 2016. The recent refurbishment ongoing is unsettling, but I fully understand that it needs to be done.
The dining room and lounge are beautifully furnished. Thank you!

Thank you very much for your review, we really appreciate your feedback. At Oaken Holt we take great pride in ensuring we deliver high quality care and facilities and we are very pleased that you have a positive impression of our team and the high quality care they provide.

As you are aware, Oaken Holt is an older building which retains a myriad of period features – from stained glass and leaded windows, to parquet flooring, original fireplaces and rooms with fine high ceilings. Oaken Holt is benefitting from a substantial investment and refurbishment programme to redecorate and refresh many areas of the home including several bedrooms to ensure that our high standards of service can be fully maintained. We are striving to minimise any disruption to our residents at our home.

We always welcome the opportunity to improve, and hope that you will continue to share your suggestions with us in the home in future.

Very professional and caring. Relatives treated very well when visiting. Mum has settled in very well. Full restoration of buildings in progress- Mum has one of the refurbished rooms which is very spacious. The setting of the house in its grounds, very pleasant. Food is good and relatives can eat with residents which is very sociable.
