What our Clients Say

Word of mouth is important and I often recommend Margaret House.

Healthcare Professional

My Mum looks better now than she has looked for years.  The food is great and Mum is eating far better than she has for years.  Everything is perfect, I have great peace of mind knowing that her well being is looked after and that the staff are great.


We have been delighted with the care given to Mum over the past 14 months. The staff are long-serving, friendly and diligent, managed well and very welcoming. They encourage as much independence as possible, but are always on hand to lend a hand. The home is spacious, warm and comfortable and offers a range of activities daily to engage the residents, although no pressure is put on them to participate against their will. In addition, they are served by a hairdresser, optician, chiropodist, rector, doctor  and entertainers - all at no extra charge. Relatives and friends are encouraged to visit all day and are invited for meals and special events. I know that my Mum is as safe and happy as she could be in her nineties
