Why choose Garden House retirement home?

Garden House is a family run retirement home, providing high quality 24-hour care and support for our elderly residents.

Personalised care plans

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.

Making the right decision

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.

24-hour care and support

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.

Family run

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’.
