Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury

The exterior of Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury

Our care home in Newbury is focused on enabling older people with a range of needs to continue getting the most out of every day.

Winchcombe Place has 80 bedrooms, all ensuite, and all with subtly different outlooks and colour schemes, so there’s a room to suit every taste. Some of the rooms are close to the coffee shop, hair salon and cinema, so are perfect for people who like to be in the heart of things. Some of the downstairs rooms offer direct access to our gardens and courtyards, suiting keen gardeners. Every room has its own flat-screen TV, phone and internet connections, adjustable profile bed and 24-hour nurse call system.

At Winchcombe Place care home each floor has its own dining room and lounge. This helps to create a more close-knit atmosphere – a sort of ‘home within a home’. This layout particularly suits residents living with dementia who prefer peace and quiet and familiar faces, but is actually popular with everyone for its intimate community feel.

Superb location

Winchcombe Place is set in a great location close to the A4, A34 and M4 as well as Newbury station, so we’re easily accessible for friends and loved ones visiting from around the south and south east of England. The care home has ample parking for visitors, who are welcome any time of the day or night. We even have a room for residents’ families to have some quiet time or to spend the night in if they live some distance away or want to be close to their loved one overnight.

Although it’s lovely to have visitors come to us, we get out and about too, and Winchcombe Place is in a superb position for some wonderful day trips. Newbury Racecourse is just up the road, as is the pretty Kennet and Avon Canal with its many river trips. Further afield are the historic towns of Henley and Marlborough and stunning stately homes like Highclere Castle (better known as Downton Abbey). And a day at the south coast is always an option.

For those keen to stay closer to home, the care home’s gardens are a lovely spot for sitting and enjoying the sunshine and bird life. We have courtyard and patio areas, wheelchair-friendly pathways (all of Winchcombe Place is wheelchair accessible) as well as raised beds to make it easier if residents want to help out with some gardening.

Linking with the community

Our team has built links with the local community so that residents can continue to feel a part of the life of the town when they move in. We invite community and social groups and charities to the care home to share advice and to socialise, and a top priority for us has been to connect with Newbury’s health and wellbeing professionals to ensure that residents are always able to feel and look their best. This includes regular visits from a GP, dentist, optician, dietician, hair and beauty professionals, a podiatrist and physiotherapist.
