Welcome to Courtenay House Care Home
Courtenay House Care Home offers different levels of care to suit a range of needs, including long term nursing and residential care, or shorter respite stays. The home has well trained, attentive care staff supported by registered nurses, providing a high standard of care 24 hours per day.
Situated close to the market town of Fakenham, Courtenay House was formally a traditional farmhouse which has been carefully modernised and extended. It is in the rural village of Tittleshall in its own gardens, with views overlooking farmland. Residents can enjoy spending time in the enclosed courtyard overlooking the aviary, the communal lounges, the quiet lounge or their own room. The fully furnished rooms provide comfort and residents are encouraged to personalise these to meet their individual needs.
Life at Courtenay House Care Home
We have a dedicated activities coordinator whose aim is to provide stimulating group and individual activities for residents.
This may include quizzes, games, trips to local places of interests, arts & crafts and reminiscence. The home is also visited weekly by two local PAT (Pets As Therapy) dogs which everybody thoroughly enjoys. Residents thoughts are regularly sought to ensure activities are meaningful and relevant.
Our home has established links with local groups including playgroups, the Brownies, churches and local schools who are always welcome visitors. Our nutritious home cooked food is prepared by our chef, and varied diets can be catered for.
My mother has been in Courtenay House for 2 and a half years and has been wonderfully well looked after. However in the last few weeks my mother had a major stroke and the care has been exemplary. She died in the home on 7th September. The care in her last days could not have been improved upon. They looked after everything right until the end. They also looked after me, I never felt I was on my own. A great home.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

Residents from Courtenay House Care Home in Kings Lynn, enjoyed a Christmas trip out to the nearby market town of Fakenham.
John Watts, Home Manager, said: “The residents thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Fakenham. They indulged in a bit of Christmas shopping, and admired the Christmas tree display before enjoying the carol service. When they came home they continued to sing the carols that they’d heard. It was lovely and festive listening to them all.”
