We believe a retirement home should be

  • Where each person is an individual
  • Where there are no unnecessary rules and regulations
  • Where dignity, peace and comfort take priority
  • Where companionship, interest and activity flourishes.
  • And where people are supported to lead the fullest possible lives

About Us

Located in the village of Lychett Matravers, near Poole, Castle Farm was part of the Great Farm which was divided into smaller units at the time of the Enclosures Act. The oldest part of the farmhouse dates from the 18th century and the farm was in continual agricultural use until the 1980s. The Retirement Home is on the edge of the village, with access to the local GP surgery, library, village store and post office. Residents enjoy the peace, tranquility and beauty of the unspoilt Dorset countryside whilst also benefitting from the fresh, clean country air.

With an outstanding reputation for care in the local community, Castle Farm Retirement Home is run by the Manager Dawn Roessler, as well as a team of dedicated staff with a number of relevant health care qualifications. The home has also achieved their Gold Standards Framework accreditation (GSF). A framework for implementing improved coordination and better organisation to deliver better outcomes in line with their needs and preferences for people nearing end of life care. The home achieved 'Beacon Status', the highest level of accreditation for their outstanding submission.
