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.

Don't take our word for it

The words of our residents and relatives say more than we ever could

"It is a home from home without the snags of being at home. I feel safe at night and have immediate assistance with any problem that arises. I feel the home is dealing with any covid issues as they arise very sympathetically and efficiently."

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.
