Care home

Walton Charity have now transferred Sherwood House to Asprey Healthcare. Please visit

Sherwood House residential care home provides 24 hour care for frail older people in a modern, purpose built home. The home is registered with the Care Quality Commission to care for 35 people and is well regarded locally and thought of as a ‘home from home,’ by many of the residents’ relatives.

We provide full care facilities from our professional, highly experienced and dedicated staff. Our service is fully compliant with the Care Quality Commission (CQC - which is the organisation that inspects and monitors standards of care.

Sometimes older people may need residential care for a short period of time. This may be after a period of illness, or when their usual carer is away. We offer short term stays subject to availability.

We pride ourselves on our service to residents and aim to offer the highest standards of care in a comfortable and stimulating environment. We offer organised activities, which include outings on our minibus.

Sherwood House has a large dining room and lounge, pleasant and easily accessible gardens, an activities area and seating areas close to residents’ rooms. All rooms are en suite, comfortable and furnished, with an emergency pull cord system.

“We would recommend Sherwood House most highly to anyone looking for a warm, loving environment in later life. We are really happy with the care our mum received.”

“Many thanks for arranging such a lovely birthday tea for Mum. Would you please pass on our warmest thanks to other members of the team who joined in and made the day such a happy one for Mum. A 90th birthday is still a pretty rare milestone.”

“My mother suffers from vascular dementia. When I had to accept that I could no longer look after her myself, I placed her in the care of Sherwood House. There she is treated with respect and kindness by the staff and feels safe and loved. I, and the rest of her family, have free access and always feel welcome.”
