Outstanding nursing care in a tranquil setting.

The health and happiness of our residents is the main priority for St David’s staff.

Set in a beautiful Victorian Priory that dates back to 1860, St David’s provides tender, dignified nursing care for up to 39 residents.

The building and grounds are lovingly maintained by our dedicated team of staff, and many of the original features – such as stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings and ornate fireplaces – still remain.

The beauty and history of these add to the peaceful atmosphere at St David’s… and with a staff-to-resident ratio that is one of the highest in the country, it should come as no surprise that our residents and their families love being here.
