"I may not be able to give years to life, but I am able to give quality care to years"

Tracey Gilroy

Weald Hall Residential Home is a large country house, situated in a rural location on the outskirts of the small village of Thornwood Common, near Epping in Essex. We are lucky to be in quite a rural location, which is very peaceful and tranquil, and we often see lots of wildlife in our beautiful gardens. It is surrounded by farmland with views across fields and to the village beyond, our garden also backs on to the runway of the local airfield where you are able to watch the small planes take off and occasionally watch the red arrows practice. We are within easy access of the M25 and M11 motorways.
