Meet The Manager

Leah McGlone is The Registered Manager at Marsh House.

The charming Marsh House, a converted farmhouse, offers its residents great views, beautifully decorated rooms and spacious facilities to socialise in.

The care provided by the highly-qualified and compassionate staff is personalised to ensure each resident is treated as an individual. Meals provided follow the same ethos and the home's chef regularly speaks to residents to fulfil their needs and preferences.

Marsh House accommodates up to 33 residents. Most rooms feature French doors that open onto the grounds and residents have lots of space around the home, including a conservatory, to socialise and relax.
