Welcome to The Orchard

The Orchard

Our residential home is set in a stunning location surrounded by the picturesque Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. The building, newly built in 2018, has been meticulously planned taking into consideration insightful feedback and recommendations gathered from residents and staff from all Milkwood Care's homes.

Our home is your home

The Orchard has fourteen very spacious, individually designed and styled rooms, each with a walk in wet room. Each window at the Orchard offers far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside and wonderful views down the Wye valley. It has a beautifully planned lounge and conservatory area and these also benefit from the panoramic views.

The Orchard has level paving and patio areas outside where residents can sit and enjoy the views with family and friends. The gardens have been landscaped and planted with various shrubs and fruit trees that will offer colour and interest through the changing seasons.

We care about high standards

In January 2020, The Orchard was rated ‘Good’ overall in an inspection by England’s health and adult social care regulatory body, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
