Garden House is a family run retirement home, providing high quality 24-hour care and support for our elderly residents.
We create individually tailored care plans so that every one of our elderly residents receives the correct level of care, whilst enjoying the quality of life they deserve. Whether staying with us on a long-term elderly care or convalescence basis, our experienced and compassionate retirement home team welcome you to our extended family.
We know that choosing the right long-term elderly care requires careful consideration. Not only is it a big decision but one that’s often made during a particularly difficult time. Over the years our family run retirement home has developed ways of making this process as stress free and easy as possible – for both elderly residents and their loved ones.
To begin with, we help by focusing on the move as a positive new chapter of companionship in a safe, warm and homely environment. A place where new friendships blossom, and day-to-day life is easier.
Garden House is home to a range of elderly residents. Some who simply no longer wish to live alone to those who need 24-hour care and support – on a long-term elderly care, short term respite or convalescence basis.
As a small, family run retirement home, our caring staff work closely together to offer the best personalised care whilst maintaining that all important family atmosphere. With the aim that every resident lives as happy and independent life as possible.
Over the years, our family run retirement home has established an excellent reputation in the local community as a short and long-term elderly care provider. Situated in a quiet residential area of Sherborne, within easy walking distance of the historic town centre, Garden House provides a safe, comfortable and restful ‘home from home’.
We invite you to come and see for yourself what Garden House retirement home has to offer and, of course, hear what our existing residents have to say.
Call for a coffee and a chat – we would be delighted to show you around.

My mother has now been a resident for 18 months so it is timely to write a review. My mother is very happy with the quality of care she receives and my wife and I are happy to place on record that we have nothing but praise for the service provided. All staff are unfailingly friendly, helpful and professional in everything they do, and nothing is too much trouble.
The management and staff are very caring and understand my mother's 'sense of humour' very well. The moment any problems have arisen, they have been in direct contact with us and have helped to solve any outstanding issues. The home may be small, but that is its endearing advantage. Indeed, my mother is always saying how happy she is there.
My mum went to Garden House in July 2013 for a short stay and decided to go back after a few weeks back in her flat. She stayed at Garden House until 3rd March 2017 when she passed away aged 94. The staff are wonderful, very caring and kind, even though residents can be trying at times (Mum included). The food and activities are very good. When my mum passed, I was phoned and went to be with her to say goodbye. I can't say any more.
The care my father receives is above and beyond, and all the staff treat us as if we were family. The home is clean and bright with no smells which was important when I started looking into care for my Dad. I cannot praise Garden House enough. My father has been here for two years and is happy, well fed, clean and contented.
I visited my aunt on 18th December. My aunt is bed bound but her room has been tidied with Christmas cards displayed. Refreshments are offered frequently as is the offer of food. During the visit, my aunt required moving. The staff on duty were quick to help and make sure she was comfortable. All the staff are knowledgeable and my aunt's health and understand her as an individual and provide her with both dignity and kindness.
My elderly Aunt has been a resident of Garden House for the past nine months, in my opinion, it's the best thing we did. She is happy and healthy and loves it there. We know as a family that she is well looked after and safe, which means a lot as we don't live close by. I can't fault the care that she receives. Excellent!
