Our Home

Abbey View is a fine and friendly home, located in the beautiful country town of Sherborne. Although a single building purpose built for residential and nursing care, the home resembles a row of cottages and blends discreetly into this ancient setting. It is a family-oriented home at ease with itself, and closely integrated with the welcoming and relaxed town community. 

The home is part of Colten Care, an independent and family-run company determined to set the highest standards in all aspects of care for the elderly. With our simple, all-inclusive pricing structure, there are no hidden extras or non-refundable deposits.

Our Garden

We pride ourselves on our beautiful and stimulating gardens. We recognise that many of our residents had such gardens themselves, and that gardening may have been a special pastime for them. We like to think that we can offer residents the opportunity to continue that pastime in whatever way they feel appropriate.

Colten Champions

Every year, we celebrate the hard work and dedication of the team members across the Colten group who consistently deliver above and beyond expectations. Colleagues, residents, and their relatives can all put forward their nominations, before the finalists are invited to a glittering gala ceremony at Bournemouth's Highcliff Marriott Hotel, hosted by a celebrity guest! This year we have had to take into consideration the changing situation we find ourselves in and as suspected we had to cancel our Awards night. However, we still have winners!
