Having looked at the other reviews, I must agree with many, as that is my view now having my mother staying there. She has only been there for just over 4 weeks. I know she is happy there and because of her age that really does count. The staff do their best all the time, and sometimes make my mother laugh, which she hasn't done much of for a while. I'm glad to be able to put my and mother's views forward.

Mum has enjoyed the best care and attention since commencing her stay 12 months ago . She receives excellent medical and caring support. Although initially reluctant to leave her home, she now says that she regards Country Lodge as her home. She says she feels "safe" and that she never feels lonely because she has a constant stream of visitors in the form of the carers. She was delighted that they produced a birthday cake and helped her celebrate her 91 st birthday recently. I sleep a lot easier knowing she is happy and so well cared for .

Mum moved to Country Lodge as she was unable to live at home. She has settled in well at Country Lodge and we have no worries that she is well cared for and happy in a safe and secure environment. The staff treat her as one of the family and she has improved considerably since her admission.

Superb Care Home

My Step Father was only at Countrylode for a short period. Really pleased we chose this home as when you look at various options you don't know exactly what care they will provide.

Really pleased with atmosphere and bright surroundings. The care provided was superb and staff really cared which was very moving.

I cannot praise the staff higher enough with their passion and willingness to guage with residents and visitors.

This is a delightful, joyous sort of place. It is rare to find somewhere that exudes friendliness and happiness and a genuine spirit of kindly consideration towards all the residents, as this does. My wife Jennie has stayed for several 3 week spells of 'respite, so that I can get a break away without worrying about whether Jennie is being properly cared for. I am her full time carer and she is very dependent on quality care, as she is wheel chair bound, unable to speak even, needs feeding, personal care etc etc.

This nursing home provided excellent nursing, caring and all the staff were friendly, compassionate and efficient. The food was all home cooked, always home-made cakes for afternoon tea and well presented. Unfortunately, my cousin passed away last month, and the home have been very caring of me. I would be happy to recommend this home. The garden was well attended, making it attractive to look out onto.
