Bought by Mannamead Care in 2010, Thorn Park is set within a beautiful 1880 Victorian mansion. Marble fire places take pride of place in the living and dining rooms, complimented by beautiful ornate decoration. The home has retained its Victorian grandeur, combined with a comfortable and welcoming feel, a truly tranquil place to live.

Based in a residential area, close to the city centre, Thorn Park is within easy access to other nearby locations by public transport, with a bus stop right outside the home. The home is also located in a conservation area, near to a spacious and well-kept park; perfect for walks in the summer. The rear south facing gardens are private, enclosed and secure, ideal for residents who want to read a book in the sunshine, or enjoy light refreshments with friends and family.

Every individual who comes to live at Thorn Park is valued and treated with the respect and dignity according to their individual needs and wishes.
