Our Building and Facilities

Arriving at Wellcross Grange you’re likely to be greeted first by one of the many ducks who share the beautiful grounds. The welcome inside is even warmer. The house is full of character which begins with the striking wood panelled entrance hall and continues throughout with original features including fireplaces, high ceilings and large windows. The spacious accommodation offers a traditional, homely environment so you can be comfortable wherever you choose to spend your time.

Residents enjoy views of the beautiful lawned gardens from our lounge, dining room and day room/ conservatory. These bright pleasant rooms are focal points for many of the social activities within the home. They are comfortable welcoming places where people enjoy spending time together or relaxing quietly. The day room leads to a well tended garden, while the dining room overlooks the gardens, duck and koi pond to the front, easily accessed through French doors.

The well-tended grounds create a sense of peace and freedom which enrich the lives of our residents. You can enjoy the views or take fresh air every day as you stroll around the grounds or relax on one of the many benches under a sunshade. Raised beds planted by residents bring colour and interest all year round, and there’s a gazebo and pergola too.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Mealtimes are a really important part of the day. Here at Wellcross Grange, our aim is that everyone should receive nutritionally balanced, tasty food and really enjoy their meals.

Our qualified and experienced Chef, Biju, provides a great variety of appetising and well-presented home-cooked meals, using fresh ingredients which are locally sourced whenever possible. The menu is created with input from residents; after all it is their home. It encompasses a blend of traditional cooking with some exciting ethnic dishes. We are always happy to cater for special diets and personal preferences, and love nothing more than celebrating birthdays and other special occasions. Family parties can always be arranged. When weather permits, we enjoy a barbeque or buffet in the garden where staff, residents and their guests gather to enjoy a tasty social event.

For breakfast residents have a choice of fruit, cereal including proper porridge, toast or a cooked breakfast, served with tea or coffee and fruit juice. At lunchtime, there’s a three course meal with a choice of two hot dishes daily. And a light supper is served every evening. Throughout the day snacks and hot drinks are available, with home-baked cakes in the afternoon. Each Friday residents enjoy a glass of sherry, and wine is available during the weekends. Most of our residents choose to eat their meals in the bright and welcoming dining room, although for those who prefer to eat in their own room we’re happy to accommodate this. And if anyone needs assistance with eating, we’ll gladly help.
