Ventress Hall

Welcome to Ventress Hall

Ventress Hall is all about enjoying quality care and fulfilling days in a lovely setting. The team at our Darlington care home provides nursing, residential and dementia care, as well as sensitive end of life care. We also offer short term (respite) care.

Every bedroom at Ventress Hall care home is different - some feature high ceilings, while others open directly onto our courtyards. Each room has a 24-hour nurse call system as well as phone and television connections. Most rooms have en-suite facilities and we also have a few shared or double rooms that are ideal for couples.

Throughout the care home there are ample spaces to relax, socialise or to do activities. There are several lounges and dining rooms, a library, hair salon and a warm and sunny conservatory. Outside, our two courtyard gardens are a lovely spot for enjoying a cup of tea in the sun. The home and gardens are fully wheelchair accessible.

I love seeing the residents happy, and I enjoy seeing the positive impact of the work we do. We often have residents join us for short term respite care as they convalesce after an illness or operation. It’s wonderful to see them recover and return home.

How we are doing

When you’re choosing care for a loved one, trust is fundamental to your decision. Take a look at some of our reviews from family members and residents.

How we are doing reviews


We are working very hard to ensure that the service we provide is of the highest quality. We are aware that CQC have highlighted we need to make improvements to our service, we have a comprehensive service improvement plan in place to ensure we are acting to make changes that will be sustained and embedded. Much progress has already been made and it was reassuring to read that the inspectors found that the team has a caring attitude. We have appointed a new manager who is already completing the CQC Registered Manager process. Please ask the home manager if you wish to discuss the contents of our service improvement plan.
