We are fortunate at Peverel Court Care Homes to have fantastic staff teams, with numerous team members who’ve been with us for many years, all of whom contribute to making Bartlett’s, Stone House and Merryfield happy, supportive and joyous homes to live and work in.

The dedication and attention to detail from our staff provides our residents with outstanding care and the highest quality of life, so we were thrilled to see their fantastic efforts recognised nationally again.


Peverel Court Care have been awarded the Top 20 Small Care Home Group Award 2024 for the 9th consecutive year, whilst both Bartlett’s and Merryfield have been individually awarded Top 20 Awards for South East England. 



These are hugely significant awards for our care homes, and we are very proud to be in the running for the number one care home in Buckinghamshire and the number one care home in Oxfordshire. We pride ourselves on providing excellent care and always strive to run the best care homes in Aylesbury, Witney and their wider communities. Winning this award for nine consecutive years is a testament to our staff team’s depth of experience and continuous commitment to providing excellent care. You can see us on the winner’s lists here.


A message from our Associate Director, Preet Shergill, for our staff:

Well done to all of the Peverel Court Care team for your outstanding work. The exceptional levels of care provided were captured in numerous excellent reviews from those who matter most; our residents and their relatives. Those excellent reviews have been recognised with this award. Well done to an outstanding team on winning this award for nine consecutive years!


What reviews say about our care at Bartlett’s:

Review from G M (Sister of Resident)

Bartlett’s Residential Care Home is exceptional! The care, consideration and kindness given to my brother was marvellous. All the staff throughout his three year stay at Bartlett’s Residential Care Home were so generous with their time. As close members of his family we were always welcome and knowing that my brother was in such safe hands was so comforting. We owe them a debt of gratitude.

Review from Hugh G (Son of Resident)

In the three years, my father spent at Bartlett’s, the care he received was nothing short of incredible. I don’t think I can overstate the impact it has knowing that there is such a dedicated and caring team of people on hand to look after a loved one, indeed “team” seems like the wrong word to use because the atmosphere they create and the care they give is more like that of a family. I am left with a profound sense of gratitude and respect for everybody there.

Review from Timothy G (Son of Resident)

Superb care, fantastic staff, excellent facility. I’m so glad we chose Bartletts. The staff are extremely well trained and professional. Always kind, friendly and approachable. They pay close attention to every resident’s needs 24 hours a day and show empathy and respect. They are very good at communicating with family, very accommodating and a delight to deal with. The facility is tremendous: Everything is modern, clean and in perfect working order. Dad was very comfortable. The meals are excellent, and tea/coffee/juice/snacks are always available. The entertainment, activities and companionship are good. The common areas are cheerful and calm. The grounds are beautiful. Thank you for all you have done for my father.


What reviews say about our care at Merryfield:

Review from Stephanie Z (Daughter of Resident)

Merryfield is a very welcoming and friendly home. It is only small but all the better for it, because it retains the feel and atmosphere of a real home from home. The staff are brilliant, very caring and professional. I would recommend it without reservation.

Review from Amanda S (Son of Resident)

My family and I have been very impressed by the care and dedication given to my mum over the past year. She loves it here and enjoys a lot of the activities offered including meeting the pets and therapy dog.

Review from Mark R (Son of Resident)

Although I live a bit further away from my parents than my sister, I am never in any doubt at all that ‘the folks’ are in very good hands which is very reassuring indeed. The staff are all real characters and so kind.

Review from Kate S (Daughter of Resident)

The home that looks and feels like a real family home. As soon as I stepped inside I knew it was where I wanted my parents to live. Their happiness shows that I made the right decision. Beautiful surroundings, excellent staff and fantastic experiences and activities.


What reviews say about our care at Stone House:

Review from Sarah L (Daughter of Resident)

All the staff have been welcoming and helpful from the first time we came to view the home to my father and all the friends and family who have come to see him. My father found his time in the hospital very difficult, and it has been so good to see him relax and settle since he moved to the home. We appreciate the level of everyday care that he is now experiencing.

Review from Anne S (Daughter of Resident)

I have always found the staff to be helpful, genuinely caring and friendly. My mother has been a resident at Stone House for 18 months, and in that time, has enjoyed a wide variety of activities. The food is very good, and once a month, we have lunch together in the dining room. The gardens are lovely, and with the improvements that are currently being made, they will be even better in 2024.

Review from F B (Daughter of Resident)

I’m so pleased my mum is in Stone House. I think everything about it is top-notch – the staff, the rooms, the food and especially the activities – couldn’t ask for better. It’s the sort of home I hope my boys find me.

Review from A G (Son of Resident)

Very caring establishment with wonderful staff. Good accommodation and facilities with a full programme of activities for those able to participate. Nice grounds available for fresh air – weather permitting.

We also shared recent thank-you’s, five-star reviews, and comments from residents and relatives for the team to read. Some of the lovely feedback we shared included:


From Bartlett’s families:

  • To everyone at Bartlett’s. thank you very much for looking after mum so well.
  • Thank you all very much, my grandmother has never been happier since moving here.
  • You are all superstars! Thank you for the care with a smile for my father.
  • We think you’re all pretty special people and have huge admiration for all the lovely care you give.


From Merryfield families:

  • Both grandparents reside at Merryfield Nursing home, and they have been treated better than we could have ever hoped. We are so impressed with the level of care they have received and love the selection of activities offered each week. They seem to have a new hobby every time we visit. Thank you to all the staff and support team that makes their experience so special.
  • I would just like to say how impressed we have been with the staff there. They became her extended family and although she was offered a bed in a local hospice in her last few weeks, she was adamant she wished to stay at Merryfield. You have some excellent employees!


From Stone House families:

  • Thank you again for all your support and care. We were very lucky to have found Stone House for our father.
  • A big thank you for making yesterday such an enjoyable time with Mum for her 90th. The dining room was a lovely venue, and the catering was ideal for the occasion. Mum was looking well, and someone had taken some trouble to do Mum’s hair so nicely. So again, a big thank you to all concerned, it’s very comforting to know that Mum is being cared for by such a great team of people.
  • Thank you all so much for the effort you make in looking after Mum and all the residents. It’s comforting to know you care.
  • Everyone was part of our lives for nearly four years. It was a home from home for us both. You offered him peace, love, gentleness, and medical care throughout the years. I could not wish for a better place than to be cared for by those at Stone Nursing Home.
