Mulberry House logo

Mulberry House is our newest addition to the Buckland Care family. It opened in July 2019, newly renovated and interior designed throughout. The house is situated in a beautiful, rural Devon location in the quaint little town of Bovey Tracey, on the edge of Dartmoor. Many of the bedrooms benefit from beautiful countryside views.

Residents will not only be supported with personal care but our devoted staff will take over all the everyday tasks of laundry, cooking, gardening and housekeeping, allowing the residents more time to relax and enjoy themselves in a comfortable and safe environment.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Our Building and Facilities

Mulberry House has several zones, some have features which form part of the original architecture and others are new extensions, allowing us to cater to both traditional and modern tastes. As well as a light and airy dining room, there are 3 lounges all with different themes: Dartmoor Library, Brimley Vale Tea Room and The Aviary. Dartmoor Library is a traditional style, cosy lounge – the perfect place to go to relax and read a book. Brimley Vale Tea Room is our bright, social lounge with a tea and coffee machine and daily fresh cakes; an ideal area to entertain guests. The Aviary is our tranquil living room full of foliage and calming green tones.

We have extensive gardens full of beautiful trees and flowers at Mulberry House which you can explore. The dining room also leads out onto an accessible terrace where residents have potted their own sweet peas. The Aviary and many of the bedrooms also benefit from terrace access, perfect for eating al fresco on warm, summer days.
