The home was once a manor house. It has been refurbished with tasteful, modern decoration and is still surrounded by acres of countryside. It is a 10-minute drive into the town of Taunton, Somerset, where residents can access shops, amenities and a railway station.
Each bedroom is single, most have en-suite facilities and all have television points. The lounge still has the manor’s original open hearth and a piano. There are sociable dining areas which look out onto the rolling countryside.
Residents are supported to pursue their own hobbies or join in with group activities and outings. Food is home-cooked and nutritionally balanced, with dietary requirements catered for and support in eating and drinking if needed.
You’ll find Gotton Manor Care Home is situated on the outskirts of Taunton, with beautiful views of surrounding hills and countryside. We are a short drive away from Taunton town centre, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.
Our Care team offers residential care to those who need help with daily tasks, nursing care for people who have complex medical needs, and respite care to give family or friends a well-earned break.
Gotton Manor Care Home is set in 10 acres of stunning landscaped gardens, which our residents love to explore and enjoy. Our residents particularly like to admire the views from the patio area whilst spending time with their loved ones. As one of the leading care homes in Taunton, our dedicated team actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions, contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
I started my career in care over 20 years ago, working as a care assistant in a local nursing home. Over the years, I have worked in community care, nursing homes, residential homes and whilst I worked for a care agency, I done HCA shifts in hospitals and hospices.
I have put my all into working my way up the ranks and I have been working in supervisory and Deputy Managers posts over the last 10 years.
Since working with our fantastic team at Gotton Manor, I have felt nothing but welcomed and supported both in house and from the rest of the Harbour Healthcare team.
I am passionate about our residents receiving person centred care and I am very proud of our beautiful home and amazing views.

From our first visit three years ago, the standards in the home have been excellent. No matter what time of day, day of week, we always receive the same welcome. The cleanliness is exceptional, as is the menu and cuisine.
Mum has been a resident at Gotton Manor for nearly a year now, as a family we were not sure how she would settle, but there was no need to worry as Mum is extremely happy there. The staff are wonderful and they go above and beyond with Mum and all the residents. There is always some form of activity going on too, whether its singing a quiz, painting or even making Pizzas, But most of all Mum enjoyed the trips out in the mini bus, (before lock down ). Since COVID-19, it's been difficult for Mum and all the family, but now we can have window and garden visits, we look forward to our visit and spending quality time with Mum. Thank you to all staff at Gotton Manor you do a fantastic job.
