“I could consider this place as my home, the staff and manager are wonderful. They treat us with respect. I don’t know what I would have done if it had not been for The Gables” – Marie Baber, resident.


“The home has a very welcoming atmosphere and is light, bright and airy! (and no smells!) Always fresh flowers - fresh fruit - and a caring atmosphere. The manager is always available and nothing is too much trouble. The turnover of staff is very low and it appears to be a real team! Above all my mum is very happy! She decided with another resident - it was the next best thing to living at home independently. Food is lovely and plentiful, furnishings great, a real home from home and exceptional care.” – Dianne Pearson, resident’s relative.


“I was very impressed with the initial visit and first impressions stay with you! Staff (without exception) have been friendly and helpful whenever I have visited. The whole atmosphere is homely and friendly and aromas of cooking biscuits and cakes is always good!” – Elizabeth Moody, resident’s relative.

“Our mum has been living at the Gables for two months. In that time, we have seen her settle and relax and become more like 'our mum’ again. The home has a very homely feel to it, where the staff remain professional and friendly and an atmosphere of trust, happiness and real caring is fostered. Nothing is too much trouble and as a result the residents and staff remain cheerful. It is a real treat to visit her! and a real comfort to know she is happy, safe and enjoying life again!” – Roger Gillett, resident’s relative.


“Mum has been happily living at the Gables for three years. She enjoys the many activities that take place and has surprised us with her keep fit routines. The staff are welcoming and supportive, understanding the needs of the relatives as well as the residents. Mum is well cared for in body and mind, in comfortable, homely surroundings.” – Mrs. Jones, resident’s relative.


“Since my brother began his care at Gables the transformation in him has been very noticeable… The management and staff at the Gables are first class with really good food and comfort of rooms provided. There is a general ‘feel good factor’ about the place with great care and understanding shown and given to all the residents. My sister and I thoroughly recommend this home.” – David Fear, resident’s relative.

“My sister moved to the Gables last year. What a brilliant place, staff are lovely and we love visiting, always get tea and cake. Fantastic home so caring.” – Sue McSherry, resident’s relative.


“My mother never wanted to enter a care home but since coming to the Gables she has settled in very well and she does not wish to go anywhere else. She has gained weight and looks 100% better” – Mr. Lock, resident’s relative.


“Very outstanding care home, nothing is too much trouble, love going to see my friend.” –  Margaret Davis, resident’s friend.


“Our first impression was of a lovely welcoming, clean and very friendly house. We have as a family nothing but praise and thankfulness for this wonderful place and team of carers. The Gables can take 20 people so it is a perfect size for getting to know everyone and it all feels like a family.” – Liz Davidson, resident’s relative.


“Highly recommend the Gables. Spotlessly clean, staff are very caring, food is excellent. Entertainment for the residents and plenty of fun times (got my name down)!” – Rob Axford, resident’s relative.
