Now Open!

Ideally located just off the junction of Banbury Road and The Moors, Porthaven’s new care home in Kidlington, England’s largest village, is now open. As well as providing excellent care for the residents of Kidlington, being less than five miles away from Summertown, Woodstock and the bustling heart of Oxford, Lincroft Meadow is a very popular home for many residents of surrounding villages, towns and cities.

Newly opened, Lincroft Meadow provides 24 hour residential, nursing, dementia and respite care for the elderly in an elegant and spacious home incorporating numerous thoughtful and practical features which ensures our home is able to meet the changing needs of its residents.

Porthaven’s expertly trained and professional staff are dedicated to the care, comfort and dignity of all our residents, with special emphasis given to promoting independence, privacy, respect and wellbeing.

All residents benefit from living in a caring environment with generously appointed private bedrooms with en suite wetrooms, and plentiful communal living areas including sitting rooms, restaurants, a café, cinema, hairdressing salon, leisure and wellness room and private dining room for special family occasions.

In keeping with our unique and award winning leisure and wellness philosophy, our residents also benefit from our private and secure landscaped garden for peaceful relaxation, gardening and if the weather permits, gentle exercising.

We would be delighted to meet you, show you around and discuss how we are able to assist you or your loved one.
