Our Waiting List

Although we usually have a waiting list, please always enquire with us because rooms do often become available. If you or a family member are finding life at home difficult, please don't wait! Enquire with us and we can talk you through the support that we can offer at Cove House and discuss whether it might be suitable for you. Please note that we don't provide specialist nursing care or specialist dementia care. 


In normal circumstances visitors are free to come and go at any time other than at meal times, which are restricted to residents only and we always extend a warm welcome to all friends and family members. 

We are actively encouraging visiting during the current situation but it is subject to certain rules. We have a visiting pod which is available for all visitors in a Covid safe way and provides for a nice relaxed environment for family and friends to catch up. Government guidelines are changing all the time for visiting inside Cove House and it is better to call to discuss this if you wish to visit in the house rather than the pod.

Cove House is part of The Abbeyfield Family, a registered charity that provides care homes. To find out more about The Abbeyfield Family you can visit their website here:


We encourage residents to transfer to our local doctor's Surgery so that there is one single point of contact with doctors. A weekly drop in surgery is held at Cove House itself. However, if residents would like to keep their usual doctor, they are welcome to do so.


We don't provide information or advice on sources of funding for care. To find out more about this one useful source can be found here.

About Abbeyfield
Cove House

Right from the moment Mum moved into Cove House, I've had complete confidence in the home's provision for her safety and wellbeing. I feel lucky that we found Cove House when living alone independently ceased to be viable for Mum. We looked at over twenty other residential care homes and Cove House was the stand-out best.

Caring staff, good food, feels safe!


Daughter of Resident

As a resident of Cove House I know what it means to care. It's not just the usual carers tasks which they do cheerfully, but the many thoughtful extras they intuit I need. I will never forget the day I was having a really rough time and the carer spontaneously put her arms around me in comforting hug. I could add the small acts of kindness like shopping for vegan pate and feeding the birds and watering my plants and bringing me gingerbread cookies. Special thanks to the cooks who cater magnificently. I have never felt so cared for in my life
