Kings Court care home is positioned at the very heart of the attractive town of Barnard Castle in County Durham.

We provide specialist residential and respite care for older people, as well as a day club and a home meal delivery service. We aim to give every resident and day club visitor  positive and fulfilling experiences every day. We offer day guests all of the same activities and meals that we provide to residents. Many of our team members have very strong local connections and enjoy swapping tales of life of rural life in and around Barnard Castle.

Our historic building is full of character and charm. In its former life as the King’s Head hotel, Charles Dickens was once a guest – he was even inspired to mention the hotel in his novel ‘Nicholas Nickelby’. The impressive hotel ballroom is now our residents’ lounge and many of our rooms are generously-sized too.
