Meet The Manager

Alexandra Bowman is Registered Manager at Gotton Manor Care Home.

Hello, my name's Alex,

I have a decade’s experience in health care, residential, nursing and dementia care.

I'm proud to lead a dedicated and loving team. I began as a Health Care Assistant and have worked hard to become the best leader I can be. I am a big believer in staff progression and training and thankfully, at Harbour Healthcare this is a view that is shared.

The team work tirelessly to provide the highest standards of care and our clinical team are hands on to ensure every need is met and every face has a smile.

Supporting an exceptional quality of life and we go above and beyond to ensure our residents feel safe and loved. Dignity and respect are reflected in the care provided.

Our menu is cooked freshly by our talented team of chefs, fresh baked cakes, fresh fruit, fresh everything- the way it should be.

Gotton is set in 10 acres of land and have the luxury of the countryside; peaceful and full of nature’s best bits!

You’ll find Gotton Manor Care Home is situated on the outskirts of Taunton, with beautiful views of surrounding hills and countryside. We are a short drive away from Taunton town centre, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.

Our Care team offers residential care to those who need help with daily tasks, nursing care for people who have complex medical needs, and respite care to give family or friends a well-earned break.

Gotton Manor Care Home is set in 10 acres of stunning landscaped gardens, which our residents love to explore and enjoy. Our residents particularly like to admire the views from the patio area whilst spending time with their loved ones. As one of the leading care homes in Taunton, our dedicated team actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions, contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.

The Importance Of Meal Times

There’s nothing quite like traditional home cooking to give everyone a lift.

We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dietitians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.

To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can be served in our pleasant restaurant-style dining rooms or, if they prefer, they can take their meals in the privacy of their own rooms.


We Serve Food At
Afternoon Tea, All day snacks, Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

Activities Are So Important

Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.

The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
