Winscombe Hall Care Centre
Winscombe Hall is a stunning Victorian Country Mansion House, nestling in the Mendip Hills amid an area of outstanding beauty, close to the Somerset levels and Cheddar. The Grade II listed building was built for the Reverent John Yatman and his family in 1836. The architects William Railton (designer of Nelson’s Column in London & Cardiff Castle) along with William Burgess (designer of fine art) were commissioned. The main house was completed in 1855, and remained as a family home for over 150 years until being converted to a care home in the last 15 year.
Cedars Care Group have tastefully updated this wonderful Victorian Mansion House whilst retaining and incorporating many of the original features, ensuring the buildings character is not spoiled and can be enjoyed by the residents.
Winscombe Hall is now split into two areas. The Hall; providing nursing & residential care, the main house has real country house grandeur and access to the beautiful four acres of gardens and woodlands. Stable Cottage; providing a more specialist environment, designated for dementia and Alzheimer’s care. It boosts many features ranging from reminiscence settings and sensory suite to specialist activities and a secure courtyard.
My Aunt loves Winscombe Hall and I have found all the staff extremely kind and caring. The new 'this is me' documents and summary of care needs in her room have been a joy to read. The compliance manager, I understand has written these, since she has been at Winscombe the change has been tremendous and the care greatly improved. The new staff team are wonderful, and business manager has been very kind. I do hope the home continues with these improvements.
