Trusted to care in
Barnard Castle, County Durham
At Kings Court, in Barnard Castle, County Durham, our team provide specialist residential and respite care for older people. We take pride in delivering flexible, personalised and innovative care.
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.
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 stylish furniture, phone, internet and television connections and a 24-hour nurse call system. We also have double rooms for couples and siblings who want to stay together, as well as two apartments.
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.
