Rectory House Nursing Home is a beautifully preserved historic building with a Georgian style frontage and inviting driveway lined with oak, pine and chestnut trees. The main part of the house was built in 1785, but the original part of the building dates back to the 1580's. The house has been refurbished but still retains the gracious features of the past - high ceilings and attractive ornate cornices. The two-acre mature landscaped gardens are perfect for residents to either relax or convalesce.

The main aspect of the house faces South with all of the rooms having en suite facilities and emergency nurse-call systems. Residents can also bring items of personal furniture, momento's and other treasures - all helping them to feel that Rectory House is their real 'Home from Home.' There are two beautifully appointed lounges where residents can relax, read a book or socialise. The conservatory with views over the garden is another place where residents can enjoy quiet moments.

Caring and qualified staff are on hand 24 hours a day ensuring that all resident's needs are catered for. Regular weekly physiotherapy sessions are held and local Doctors, Chiropodists, Dentist, Optician, Hairdressers as well as Clergy of all denominations make visits.

  • 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. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.542 for Rectory House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.542

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 3.458 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rectory House Nursing Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered beds ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.208

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Rectory House Nursing Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

My mother is currently a resident at Rectory House. She is nearing the end of her life, having spent seven weeks in hospital and six years prior to this in another care home. Rectory House is exceptional and I have plenty of experience with our care providers that are not!. The manageress is always available, helpful and jolly and very caring. All the staff are purposeful, happy and loving towards the residents and their families. The old building is warm, comfortable and exudes a relaxing aura, with beautiful outdoor areas, moreover it is safe, secure with good food. I highly recommend Rectory House.

Thank you to all at Rectory House for the professionalism, compassion, & total dedication of each & every member of the team for the care given to my father since he moved in last December. I know that Dad can be extremely difficult & I admire the patience shown by all. Rectory House has alleviated the heartache we, his family, felt trying to find a home good enough & within our budget for Dad, & believe me, we visited many homes in our search. The Manger made the transition from a ‘less than satisfactory’ care home to Rectory House easy. Dad soon became more settled & thrived on regular meals & proper administration of medication. When it comes to care for elderly & needy, there is no ‘one size fits all’. Rectory House really do cater to every character, temperament, & palate. The atmosphere, the facilities, the accommodation & the general ambience of Rectory House is friendly & homely–it could not be more different to all the negative programmes about care homes seen on TV.
