Our Home

There’s something special about life by the water. At Avon Reach, just five minutes’ walk from historic Mudeford Quay, residents enjoy all the invigorating benefits of fresh sea air, always supported by first class care. This is a place to live well alongside charm and calm, with comfortable surroundings, delightful cuisine, mature gardens, and sea views from the second floor.

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.

Strictly Come Tea Dance for Children in Need

At our Strictly Come Tea Dance, Colten Care managed to raise an incredible £5000! We want to say a big ‘Thank you’ to all of those who participated and contributed to this amazing cause. Our residents had great fun strutting their stuff on the dance floor. We were joined by Lymington’s Mayor Anne Corbridge, and the voice of Alan Didcot! Please watch our video to see how much fun we had in raising money for Children In Need, and remember to keep dancing!

Caring Without Plastic

Colten Care has become the first major provider in the UK's private care home sector to begin a group-wide reduction of single-use plastic. This is a significant move given the care sector's traditionally high use of plastic in clinical services, person-centred care and infection control.

Here at Avon Reach, not only are we supporting all of the central initiatives, but we are also working closely with residents and relatives to seek other ways our home can reduce our consumption of plastic. If you have any ideas or suggestions which could help us in our plastic-free drive, please do get in touch.

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.
