About Services Location Contact Us



Devonshire House is one of very few family run nursing and residential care homes in the area. We cater for 25 residents of various care needs. We have operated as a family business since 1986. In this time we have built a reputation for high standards of care and service, and we enjoy excellent relationships in the local community.



Day Care

Available 7 days a week every day of the year. The time you arrive and the time you leave is at your discretion. Your care will be monitored and supervised by our experienced qualified nurses and delivered by a team of dedicated care staff. Our care staff can also help you to be involved in community activities in and around the village. To maintain our high standards the number of people taking part in day care is limited. Places are in demand so early booking is recommended.

Respite Care

To help carers to take a break or to assist if you can not stay at home for any reason, we can offer short stays in our care centre from one night only. You will enjoy all aspects an experienced nursing team can offer in the privacy of your own room, or by joining in the day to day activities. Repeat bookings are a common feature for our current clients and are welcome from all future clients.

Nursing and Residential Care

We have successfully delivered nursing and residential care services for over 20 years. In this time our nursing and care team have developed with us to become experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of care delivery. Our service extends to people with many different and complex needs and can be extended to end of life care should this be required. Our maximum capacity of 25 residents means more personalised care.

Specialist Dementia Care

We offer dementia/EMI in an individual apartment of 4 single rooms. This means Dementia Care really is personal. Designed using the principles of Stirling University Dementia Centre, we offer a safe environment with individual room layouts and independent living, dining and activity facilities. Staff are qualified in Dementia Awareness and hold NVQ qualifications in Care.



Devonshire House occupies a pleasant position on the village green, in West Auckland, directly on the bus routes and close to the Manor House Hotel, Post Office, shops, schools and pubs. Our attractive Victorian bay windowed house retains much of its original character and elegance, with a crafted staircase in the entrance hall and high ceilings in airy rooms. The home has been carefully converted and extended to form a comfortable and welcoming environment. Following our recent extensive refurbishment programme, we offer a choice of lounge areas and dining rooms that overlook the village green. All the bedrooms are furnished to a high standard, and many enjoy varied views of the village green or gardens.
