Background to Margaret House

Margaret House is an independent, family run care home.

It was established in 1971 by my parents and has been owned and managed by the family ever since.  We provide 24 hour luxury care in an environment where your wellbeing, safety and security are of paramount importance to us and where care really does mean caring.

We appreciate what a big decision it is when you or your family
are looking into moving to a care home.  My parents instilled in me from an early age, that we always treat every resident in the same way as we would treat a beloved member of our own family and it is this family ethos of
‘because we care’ that continues to underpin everything about
the way Margaret House and our staff operates today and everyday.

This caring extends not only to our residents, but to their
relatives as well. Living at Margaret House is very much home
from home, which is why your relatives and friends are warmly welcomed to
the home at all times. Relatives and friends are invited to join
you for lunch or dinner and to participate in any of the
many well being activities that take place.

We believe that you should be able to enjoy an active and
fulfilling life and this is why we offer a wide range of both
individual and group activities, as well as maintaining close
links and involvement with the local community.

Please come and visit us for a cup of coffee and see for yourself the
atmosphere and lifestyle that Margaret House offers.

What our residents & relatives say

Couldn't wish for better staff and carers.  The home is like an hotel and our wish is their command.


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