Our home is your home

Castleford House offers luxury accommodation for all our residents. We have a mixture of single and double rooms, the majority are ensuite, with a terrace or views onto our well-established, extensive gardens.

Inside the house, residents enjoy bright and airy lounges as well as a smaller sitting room/library for quiet reading and for those who prefer a cosy, comfortable atmosphere. There is a passenger lift and all areas are accessible for wheel-chairs.

Our outside space is a delight, with its chestnut and mulberry trees, and superb views over the Wye Valley. Our gardens are available to residents and visitors at all times.

We have the latest technology to ensure our residents and visitors are up to date and connected during their stay here. WiFi, broadband and iPads are available for everyone to use and enjoy.

We provide outstanding care

In April 2019, Castleford House was rated ‘Outstanding’ overall in an inspection by England’s health and adult social care regulatory body, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
