Upton Mill Care Home is perfectly situated in the beautiful Cotswold town of Tetbury, a short distance from the bustling high street at the heart of the community and within close reach of the M4 and M5 motorways. Taking its name from Tetbury Upton’s historic connection to the 16th and 17th century woollen mills industry that the town is famous for, our beautiful new home is a place for our residents to live well.

Home Manager, Matthew Berry, leads a professional and highly competent team, handpicked to ensure the provision of excellent care for each of our residents. Matthew has successfully commissioned previous homes with Porthaven, achieving the overall rating ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission with an ‘Outstanding’ rating for the outcome ‘Responsive’. Matthew was also shortlisted as a finalist in 2018 in the category Care Home Manager of the Year at the National Care Awards.

Upton Mill Care Home is purpose built to provide a spacious and practical environment for residents with a range of differing care requirements, including residential and nursing care, with a dedicated suite for dementia care. Every one of Upton Mill’s private furnished bedrooms has an en suite wetroom, and whilst beautifully decorated, they are also designed with the care of our residents in mind.

The home also benefits from an extensive range of communal spaces, including lounges and dining rooms, as well as a café, cinema, hairdressing salon and a gym. A private dining room is available for family gatherings and special occasions.

Every Porthaven home has a dedicated leisure and wellness team, who are there to provide our residents with a creative and fun range of activities, entertainment, hobbies and outings, 7 days a week. A talented head chef and their team ensures residents have a selection of appetising, fresh dishes to choose from every day using only the best locally sourced ingredients and, where applicable, suitable for their individual dietary and nutritional requirements.

It would be a pleasure to show you around our beautiful new home and chat about your needs, or the needs of your loved one. To find out more, please call our client services manager, Libby Miles, or if you prefer, simply send us a message.
