Welcome to Gotton Manor Care Home
You'll find Gotton Manor Care Home about 2.5 miles outside Taunton, Somerset.
Here our experienced Registered Nurses, Senior Care Assistants and well trained Care Assistants provide quality nursing and residential care to people over the age of 65, around the clock. 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. We also offer short-stay respite care that can be booked up to a year in advance, which can be helpful when planning holidays and short breaks.
Our property is set in 10 acres of mature landscaped gardens, deep in the countryside. The Main building, which is the nursing unit, is an old manor house, tastefully decorated, and retaining many original features. There are open fireplaces in the dining room, and high ceilings and a beautiful chandelier in the entrance hall. The Coach House, which is our residential unit, also has a wonderful ambience and has some of the original beams from the stables in areas of the unit.
Our bright, spacious dining rooms are where people living here enjoy fine views of the surrounding hills and countryside.
All bedrooms have great personal-safety systems; many of the singles have en-suites. We love residents to bring their own pieces of furniture and accessories to personalise these spaces, and make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Gotton Manor Care Home
Our activities coordinator organises a variety of pastimes and trips - to the local steam railway, for instance. We have also visited local garden centres, and the beautiful Hestercombe Gardens are on our doorstep.
We have had visits from Birds of Prey as well as our adopted donkey from the Donkey Sanctuary in Devon. We have close links with the local parish church and hold annual Easter services as well as a Harvest Festival, for which the local community is encouraged to join us. We print a monthly newsletter to keep residents, families and friends informed of events and the latest home news.
Situated in beautiful Somerset countryside, most rooms have wonderful views. Recently refurbished, lovely south facing conservatory and grounds within old manor house. Spacious en-suite bedrooms, no smells! Most residents seem to prefer to stay in their rooms. Activities arranged for 4 afternoons/week so seems a bit too quiet at other times. Lovely friendly staff. Some residents eat lunch in the dining room, but other meals mostly taken in bedrooms. Residential wing and nursing wing so useful if nursing care required at a later date.
I came to Gotton for respite care whilst waiting for my bungalow being adapted and enjoyed it here so much. I gave up my bungalow and stayed at Gotton

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
