About Hill House
The larger of our two homes, Hill House is situated in a beautiful, leafy location in Kenley, offering a vibrant ambience and can accommodate up to fifty-eight residents.
Originally a large family home, Hill House was founded in 1954 and has been enhanced through a purpose-built extension in 1990, as well as an extensive refurbishment in 2014, to ensure that we continue to meet the highest possible standards. With contemporary décor and plenty of natural light and space, Hill House has a hotel feel and tends to be the more active of our two homes.
Our CQC registered manager, Grace and clinical lead Sakina, manage Hill House with the oversight of the owners. We have a full catering team preparing delicious meals for our residents, led by our head chef Rodney, as well as in house activities and entertainment coordinators who plan regular events.
“I would just like to thank you all for the care you gave my dear friend whilst she was at Hill House. When considering a nursing home, what was really important to her was to have a really homely atmosphere. This, together with the excellent nursing care she received, made all the difference to what could have been a very difficult time – losing her independence.”

Dining is always an highlight for our residents, with tasty, nutritious meals enjoyed with good company. The menus are carefully planned to offer a varied choice, and are all prepared onsite by our skilled chefs and catering assistants, taking into account the individual preferences of our residents.
Our head chef Rodney manages our catering team, and makes a point of visiting new residents to find out their dietary requirements. The chefs like to provide a silver service to those who wish to eat in the dining room, and they are also able to accommodate residents who prefer to take room service instead.
We cater for all special dietary requirements and are happy for residents to invite guests to join them for a meal. We also run an annual summer BBQ and Christmas party with delicious food on offer, which residents are always welcome to invite their friends and family along to.
Activities and other facilities
We invite our residents to socialise with one another as much as they wish and offer in-house facilities and activities to cater for all tastes.
There are multiple shared spaces for residents to enjoy outside of their own private bedrooms, including: a dining room; a lounge; a conservatory; a quiet room for reading and reflection; and two large gardens.
We also have onsite hairdressing facilities, daily delivery of newspapers, and a small shop for personal items.
WiFi is available throughout the home, and all areas and gardens are wheelchair accessible.
Our entertainment coordinator tailors activities to the abilities and preferences of those participating.
Some of our residents’ favourites include: chatting with staff; group discussions about current affairs; crosswords & jigsaw puzzles; board games, such as Scrabble and Chess; gentle exercise classes to music; stimulating Arts & Craft therapy sessions'; cookery; flower arranging and gardening demonstrations.
We also host parties for residents and their families in the Summer and at Christmas. Residents are free to travel out with family and friends, as long as staff are made aware of the arrangements. We regularly hold “Residents’ Views” meetings, where residents and their families can put forward suggestions and have a say in the running of the homes.
You can find all of our upcoming events across the homes here.
