Surrounded by nature

After an approach through pretty Devon countryside, arrival at Gittisham Hill Park doesn’t disappoint. Nature is everywhere with squirrels, butterflies and birds just as at home here as the residents of the 32 independent living bungalows and the 30 bed care home.

The established woodland provides a natural boundary for the village, creating a tranquil haven for residents. Yet the nearby villages, amenities, coast and places of interest are just a short hop in the dedicated mini bus.

Gittisham Hill Park sits in 12 acres of parkland, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, not far from Honiton. A flourishing sensory garden provides myriad scents, sounds and colours to stimulate the senses. The original building was converted from a country house. In 2012 it was extended substantially to add extra care bedrooms, and further enhance the facilities available to residents. A beautiful new clubhouse was created giving residents of the bungalows their own dedicated space for events, functions and activities. There is a library area, comfy sofas, dining space, a small kitchen perfect for making tea and coffee, and full height picture windows along three sides with views over the village. There’s even an elevated and furnished outside terrace for relaxing when the weather allows.

The combination of living options has provided a reassuring answer for a number of couples with differing care needs who still wish to enjoy life together. The partner able to live independently can enjoy the freedom and flexibility of life in one of the village’s high specification bungalows while their spouse can receive the care and support they need in the care home.

Whichever living option you choose, there is a busy social calendar in place for residents to dip in and out of. Staff organise an array of events and activities for those living in the care home with residents of the bungalows welcome to join in.

The village, aimed specifically at those aged 60 plus, is overseen by an experienced manager who, along with a number of her staff, has worked at Gittisham Hill Park for many years, offering a valuable continuity to management and care.

Our homes are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Retirement village residents agree that happiness is the healthy way forward

A lighthearted article by the Daily Telegraph earlier this year shared the ‘happy moments’ of some of our country’s most famous faces. It was an entertaining piece but it does have an underlying serious side to it if you believe the findings of a report by University College London…
