At Kings Court, we provide specialist residential and respite care for older people. We take pride in delivering flexible, person-centered and innovative care.
There's a bedroom to suit every taste at Kings Court, and each is warm, bright and comfortable. Some rooms have en-suite facilities, and all include furniture, phone, internet and television connections. We also have double rooms for couples and siblings who want to stay together, as well as two apartments.
Our historic building used to be the King’s Head hotel. Charles Dickens once stayed here and even mentioned it in ‘Nicholas Nickleby’. The hotel ballroom is now our residents’ lounge and many of our bedrooms are generously sized too.
We pride ourselves on the transparency of our care quality and fee information - ensuring you can trust us to care from that very first step.
From the moment you receive a diagnosis to learning to live well with dementia, we’re here to support you every step of the way. That’s why we’ve produced ‘One step at a time’, a video guide to navigating dementia, introduced by broadcaster and Alzheimer's Society ambassador, Angela Rippon.
Residents are at the heart of everything we do. The activities we organise are tailored to their needs and interests, and we organise activities, outings and events that will appeal to them. We’re also active in the close-knit community of Barnard Castle.
At Kings Court our skilled management team always undertake a full assessment of every prospective resident before they join us, so we know we can give your loved one the care and support they need.Read more

The dedicated and experienced team at Kings Court will provide your loved one with care that is completely tailored to their individual needs and wishes.
The thing I like most about Kings Court is the friendly atmosphere we have here. Our team have really strong, personal relationships with the residents. I think it helps that everyone in our team is from the local area, so we have a lot in common with residents who’ve also grown up and worked around here.Michele LloydHome Manager
