Located in rural Newnham, near Hook, Rowan Lodge provides luxury living and specialist support for older people who need residential or nursing care.

We also offer respite care to those who are in need of short breaks away from their usual environment.

Rowan Lodge is a purpose-built care home, designed around the needs of the people we support and finished to a high standard, with modern facilities throughout. Residents can enjoy plenty of bright and spacious communal areas inside, and the gardens and terraces are perfect for enjoying the country air.
