The Old Rectory is divided into 38 bedrooms, all of which are different sizes. Some of our bedrooms have an en-suite for those who are more independent and the other rooms have vanity units so simple tasks can be completed in the comfort of residents own rooms. We can also cater for married couples or those wanting a private lounge area. Each of the bedrooms is fitted with an emergency call system, a remote controlled colour television, sky and wi-fi can also be arranged. Although fully furnished residents are encouraged to bring with them familiar items such as furniture and personal possessions and assistance is given with personalisation and decoration, we want to help families and residents feel as comfortable and at home as they can.
Our day rooms are light and spacious having benefited from a very recent refurbishment, which was designed by working together with our residents to design a space they would like to use. The conservatory is often a popular choice as its nestled next to The Bridgewater Canal and offers stunning and tranquil views of the wildlife and beautiful gardens we are surrounded by, the dining room and it’s veranda share the same views and also benefit from looking out to the cobbled Church Lane. We have several spaces which are used for reading and a small library where books may be swapped and enjoyed.
Outside & Gardens
We are truly blessed to be in such beautiful surroundings, right in the midst of the picturesque village of Grappenhall yet encompassed by a canal that runs around the whole of the village.
We are set in about three acres of leafy mature gardens which are enjoyed by all of our residents. At the start of each season those with green fingers are encouraged to accompany us to local garden centres to pick the new plants and help with the potting of these in our purposely designed planters.
The rear of the property boasts a large lawned area which hosts our annual summer garden party.
Meals & Services
We have a five star excellence rating with The Food Standard Agency and provide a choice of meals at our home which are cooked by our two cooks, both of which have been providing healthy and delicious food here for over 10 years. We source all of our fresh produce locally so everything is delivered fresh and cooked from fresh.

We also offer chauffeured transport to events and/or appointments at no extra cost.
