Hawthorn House

Spacious and light, all rooms in Hawthorn House have been created with luxury in mind.  This new house at Rusticus has 20 bedrooms for people who need nursing care, living with dementia, respite and rehabilitation and NHS contracts. Each bedroom has floor to ceiling windows, access to a private patio garden, large en-suite wet room, and newly refurbished living area with accessible kitchen.

Having an accessible kitchen is very important to our ethos at Church Farm; we believe that it is important to enable people to be independent for as long as possible, rather than do everything for someone.  To be able to get a drink or a snack, help set the table, peel vegetables, wash and dry pots and get ready for a meal are small acts but mean so much.  To be able to do these things enable a person to feel part of the community in the home, to feel needed, that they have something to do, to feel independent; all intrinsic to a persons' well-being. Here you will see people living and working together come alive sharing their histories.  To read more about our ethos at Church Farm and how we care visit 'our care' page.

‘The accommodation was excellent, clean, tidy, spacious and the staff were phenomenal. They treated my Mum like their favourite Grandma/Auntie. They showed great compassion, care and support and also affection. Very well spoken and impeccable manners. They went above and beyond.’


‘I cannot praise highly enough, the care and attention my husband has been given during his stay at Rusticus and me also. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for all of the staff for which I am eternally grateful.’


‘As a family we are very happy with the care and support given to our Dad and the right decision was made for his long term care.’


‘The staff, including cleaners are a wonderful group. They are all very professional in everything they do. My mind was put at rest as soon as I visited. I would recommend Rusticus to anyone.
