Merrick House

Clean, pleasant, affordable, private accommodation, with social support, for older people who need it. Merrick House offers safe, attractive, comfortable and affordable bed-sitting rooms for older people, in a sunlit, modern two-storey building, with gardens at front and back.

Residents pay rent according to their means. Unobtrusive support is available if needed, and a hot lunch is cooked each day from fresh ingredients in our own professional kitchen.

We welcome men and women of all denominations and none.




Merrick House is an 18 bed-sitting assisted living facility for older people.



We work on a purely voluntary capacity and we rely on donations and bequests.



Founded over 100 years ago to provide clean, affordable housing for people who need it

All our family are grateful for the care and attention our mother received at Merrick House. We took great comfort in the knowledge that she’d found such a secure and caring environment, so close to where she’d lived for almost sixty years.

My Dad really enjoyed living there, he found the staff and fellow residents very friendly and enjoyed their company. It was a great piece of mind for me knowing that they were there to look out for Dad. He really enjoyed his time there

This is provided by a caring, compassionate, friendly and efficient staff who follow the example of their benefactor Dr Margaret Merrick. Location is convenient in a village close to all amenities, all of this we have witnessed as my brother who spent 5 happy years there until his passing.
