Built on the site of the Plainsfield Children’s home, The Orchards was extended in 2012 and redeveloped into a modern purpose-built care home which offers round-the-clock nursing care.

The Mayor of Crewkerne opened The Orchards following its upgrade in 2012. The Orchards is set in an enclosed garden in the heart of Crewkerne. The town's shops, churches, swimming pool, gym and library are all on our doorstep and within easy walking distance. The site also has access to ample parking, making it easily accessible.

When choosing a home for your loved one, you want to be sure it will offer them the most comprehensive care at the highest level and a friendly environment they can feel at home in. At The Orchards we strive to provide just that, giving you the peace of mind that your loved ones will be well cared for at all times. We offer round-the-clock care, including nursing services, so you’ll never have to worry – the right care and expertise will always be on hand to help.

The Orchards likes to operate an open door visiting policy to encourage family and friends to stop by at any time. The modern layout provides plenty of space for both social interaction and privacy with separate lounges, a dining room and spacious gardens with raised flower beds. A comprehensive activity and entertainment programme is provided, and a wide range of participatory activities are available to the residents including away-days visiting local sites. We also enjoy close links with Henhayes Community Centre to offer additional activities for residents to enjoy.

Please do give us a ring to organise coming to see The Orchards and to meet our Home Manager. We would be delighted to spend time finding out about yours or your loved ones care needs and share information on the care we provide.
