Communal areas

Due to its beautiful design, Combe Hay has plenty of light and airy rooms where residents can social together or simply enjoy a quiet rest in relaxing surroundings.

We have several lounges, large and small, as well as beautiful conservatories where many of our activities take place.

Our well-stocked library caters for all tastes, and we have many large print books so residents with visual impairments can still enjoy reading. The library also doubles as a peaceful place to sit and relax, away from the more sociable areas of the home.

Outside, the well maintained gardens and walkways provide a serene and safe environment in which to stroll or to sit, relax and enjoy being surrounded by nature.

Gardens

We are very proud of our stunningly landscaped award winning gardens. Over the past few years our gardeners, Rob and Paul, and their team have created a wonderful wildflower meadow which attracts butterflies and other vital pollinators into the gardens.

More recently, they have set up a vegetable patch which produces a variety of homegrown produce that we use in our kitchen.

At Combe Hay, we have won many awards for our garden, including the Most Productive Vegetable Garden award at the ‘Muck & Magic’ Awards, held in the Ocean Room of the Scarborough Spa. We also received a Gold Award for ‘The most cared for Residential Home or Sheltered Housing garden’ at the same event.

At the centre of our beautiful gardens is a pond and splendid summer house, all served by carefully maintained, level pathways to ensure maximum safety when strolling the grounds.

“I settled in straight away when I came into the home. It was welcoming and my room is very good for me. The bed is comfortable, with plenty of space to move around. The gardens are immaculate, peaceful, lovely to sit in. I think the outings are excellent and cater for the disabled excellently. The staff are so obliging. The food is wholesome and good. What else can I say only I love being here.”
Mrs A, Combe Hay resident
“I write in grateful thanks for the care given to my Aunt. She spent 11 years in the Home, and during that time her care was excellent, especially during the last 18 months of her life. The care given by all staff was exemplary. I cannot express my gratitude to the whole team highly enough, but thank you to everyone at Combe Hay.”
Marilyn, Relative of Combe Hay resident
“I am writing to thank you formally for the week we both spent in your care from 5th April. Another week is also offering me another welcome break and I look forward to us both walking through the doors of Combe Hay later this month. Your establishment and staff are wonderful – I could not have coped after surgery without their constant friendly attention… Whenever I subsequently mentioned Combe Hay to friends and professional workers they all, without exception, praised the level of care on offer. See you soon.”
Barrie, Short-term care resident
“When the weather is good I like to go for a stroll in the gardens and take a seat by the fish pond or in the large summer house. I have most of my meals in the dining room but enjoy a leisurely breakfast each morning in my own room. The food is always varied and delicious – worthy of a top-class restaurant.”
Mr R, Combe Hay resident
“The general atmosphere in the Home is completely informal and friendly but the first-class staff never lose sight of the individual needs of the residents and are there to meet these needs at all times. Being run as a charity by its valued trustees there are no shareholders’ dividends to consider, only the welfare of its residents. After two short stays here I rate Combe Hay as unbeatable, both for value and quality of care. I look forward to going there for a few more short stays before becoming a permanent resident.”
Brian, short-term care resident

Combe Hay has the feel of a well-run  hotel rather than a care facility. Obviously my Mother periodically becomes a bit downhearted but with the help of your team, the engaging activities and the great friendships she has developed this soon  passes . When choosing a care home for a relative you want them to be well cared for, safe and in a pleasant environment. From my perspective Combe Hay offers this at an unparalleled level which is why I choose to leave her in your care and undertake a 5 hour return journey to visit. I can sleep at night knowing she is in the safest of environments.”
