Variety is the spice of life, whatever your age. We want our residents to have the opportunity to explore a huge range of hobbies and activities in their new home.
Our home offers a wide range of imaginative and inclusive activities. So, whether that’s pottering in the garden, being creative in our arts and crafts sessions, cooking and baking, enjoying a sherry after a walk in the grounds or watching a movie with new friends, there’s something for everyone.
Castle House Care Home has a dedicated team of activities coordinators on hand to create a social calendar filled with fun and engaging activities, and not only for our residents – friends and family are more than welcome to join in too. Have a look at our monthly activities schedules which will give you a taste of what we do.
We also publish our monthly newsletter. Feel free to have a browse and let us know if you would like us to add a nice quote, story, picture or perhaps a challenging quiz or task.
As active members of the local community, we welcome a variety of visitors to our homes to share their enthusiasm, knowledge and experiences with our residents. This ranges from local historians, visits from local school children and even musical bands. We regularly schedule trips with a minibus, enabling residents to take trips to the shops, places they’ve long enjoyed visiting or to explore new destinations.
We are a pet friendly home – we have Oscar the Cocker Spaniel and Beau the cat – you can see their pictures in our gallery section. We will also consider new residents pets on a case by case basis.
Castle House is truly blessed to be close to beautiful surroundings and attractions, with the Great Torrington Bowling Club next door to us, which was founded in 1645 during the English Civil War and is believed to be the third oldest club in England. When you walk further down Castle Street, residents and relatives can enjoy the lovely views down a valley alongside the River Torridge. Not forgetting the impressive RHS Garden Rosemoor, which blends formal and informal plantings to magical effect.
