Life at Stowlangtoft Hall

Delivering premium nursing care in Suffolk

Stowlangtoft Hall was originally built for the Wilson Family in 1859. The Hall has had an interesting and varied history, with the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, a regular visitor during the late 1800s and early 1900’s.

The property was bought by Mr. A J. Edwards in 1929 and has remained in the ownership of his family since this time. Initially, the property was let to London County Council and was later used as an evacuation centre for mothers and babies from London. In 1969 Stowlangtoft Hall was transformed into a nursing home.

Today, Stowlangtoft Hall stands in seven acres of beautiful garden and mature woodland. Many of the original features of the house and garden have been preserved for the enjoyment of the residents and visitors alike. The Nursing Home offers high quality long term, convalescent and respite care in a stunning facility.

Stowlangtoft Hall is bordered by the magnificent 1000 acre Stowlangtoft Estate. Stowlangtoft Estate is a traditional country estate, which offers let residential and commercial property, luxury holiday cottages and renowned country pursuits.

Our meals are freshly cooked, nutritionally balanced and served in gorgeous surroundings to encourage residents to enjoy their mealtimes.

We look to the seasons to inspire change in our menus and take care to prepare dishes that reflect food our residents have been used to enjoying throughout their lives as well as encouraging residents to try something new!

We cater for a variety of dietary requirements and benefit from staff with training (up to degree level) in nutrition, who work closely with the care and catering staff to ensure good levels of nutrition are maintained. Food can be enjoyed in your own room should you so choose.
