Welcome to Gotton Manor Care Home

Gotton Manor Care Home was once a magnificent manor house. In recent years, it has been refurbished with tasteful, modern decoration, but is still surrounded by the same glorious acres of countryside. It is just a 10-minute drive into the town of Taunton, Somerset, where residents can access shops, amenities, and a railway station.

Our ever-popular Gotton Manor Care Home is able to care for 31 residents, including those who require round the clock general nursing care and those who feel the impact of dementia on their daily lives, requiring specialist care.

In addition to the acres of countryside, daily life at Gotton Manor Care Home is enhanced by a ‘hidden gem’ of an enclosed garden which overflows with flowers, shrubs and raised flower beds; a beautiful place for everyone to enjoy! Many of the rooms overlook either the countryside or the gardens and it is easily accessed by you and your loved ones.
