Located within walking distance of Swaffham town centre, yet benefiting from a setting within acres of beautiful grounds, Holmwood House is an extended Grade II listed building dating back to 1846.
During its conversion to a care home, many of the original features have been retained and it has been sympathetically and tastefully decorated in an elegant fashion, in keeping with its origins. The main house has 10 bedrooms, all of which have fantastic views over the grounds and is currently undergoing some refurbishment work.
Leading from the main house is a purpose built ground floor extension, which consists of 32 bedrooms. All of these rooms have en-suite facilities and are decorated and furnished to a high standard. There are two comfortable lounges, both of which have direct access to an enclosed garden. There is a dining room for those who enjoy mealtimes with others and there are specialist facilities for bathing and showering.
In April 2008, a specialist dementia care suite was added to the centre. The suite has been further enhanced, with a full refurbishment programme taking place in November 2012, and was relaunched as the Woodland Suite by Cllr. Ian Sherwood and children from Swaffham VC Infants & Nurrsery School in November 2012.
With 19 en-suite bedrooms, this unit caters specifically for those with dementia and provides a safe and secure environment in which to promote well being. There is a large lounge with unlimited access to a secure sensory garden, with the residents taking an active role in its development.
