The garden is very popular with residents who participate in maintaining the space. The home has an attractive aviary, which stimulates conversation and enjoyment of the outside space, in addition to other animals such as a rabbit.

A small shop in the home serves snacks, drinks and toiletries, in addition to a tea room with a vintage theme.

The home welcomes music groups and performers, in addition to engaging with the local community, such as schools and other groups. The home has access to a minibus and residents are taken out and about as often as possible.

Many thanks for leaving such a lovely, positive report about our home. We strive to deliver the best care possible, and we understand the importance of making the home feel like home to our residents.
We’re really happy that your mum has enjoyed her experience and hope that she will continue to do so.

With kind regards

Heather King, Home Manager

My experience with Loxley Lodge is through very good friends. The husband being disabled has had respite there over the past few years. Recently his wife was critically ill and was on a fast track plan and had to move from hospital to a care home and I insisted she was with her husband for her last days. Loxley Lodge took her and the care and consideration they gave them both was excellent, not only for them but to her brother and myself. All the staff are very caring, considerate and very friendly. The rooms are exceptionally clean, bright and homely. I would have hesitation in recommending Loxley Lodge to anyone.
