Ashley Park Care Home is located in the pretty village of West Clandon, which is near Guildford in Surrey.
Built in 1860, Ashley Park was originally a stunning private home that has been modernised while managing to retain many of the house’s original features – including a Jacobean oak staircase and a unique wood-beamed fireplace.
Ashley Park is surrounded by seven acres of beautiful grounds, which include an apple orchard, a sensory garden and a well-stocked greenhouse.
Meals are freshly-prepared every day by the home’s onsite chef and menus can be tailored to the tastes and preferences of each resident. Residents have the choice of dining in the dining room or in their own room if preferred. An out of hours menu is also available throughout the night which includes sandwiches, fruit and hot and cold drinks.
A varied activity programme aims to find activities to suit all interests and levels of mobility. A painting club, poetry group and calm exercise classes and quizzes are just a few of the activities available. Ashley Park hosts an Open Day and their annual summer fete which are popular events in the village.

We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
This inspection site visit took place on 7 November 2018 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of two inspectors and an expert by experience. An expert by experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of service.
Prior to the inspection we reviewed the information we had about the service. We used information the provider sent us in the Provider Information Return. This is information we require providers to send us at least once annually to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make.
We reviewed notifications sent to us about significant events at the service. A notification is information about important events which the provider is required to tell us about by law.
During the visit we spoke with the regional director, nine people, two relatives and eight members of staff. We looked at a sample of five care records of people who used the service, medicine administration records and training, supervision and four recruitment records for staff. We reviewed records that related to the management of the service that included minutes of staff meetings, surveys and audits of the service.
