Award Winning Aylesbury Care Homes

In March 2020, we have been notified that we’ve been recognised with the “Top 20 Recommended Care Home Group 2020′ Award” by, for the fifth year in a row. In addition to the group award, both Bartlett’s Residential Care Home and Merryfield House Nursing Home received individual awards for being in the top 20 Care Homes in the South East, an outstanding achievement. As the organisers themselves acknowledged, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, it seems odd to be receiving awards such as this at the moment. However, as they said:

It seems strange to be celebrating achievements when there is so much uncertainty at the moment and so many other things focusing our minds. We feel it’s in all our best interests to try to carry on as close to normality as we can, while looking after each other and making sure we all stay safe.

We appreciate the incredible work you are all doing at the moment, especially under such challenging circumstances. With this in mind, we hope these awards will help boost your spirits and allow you to take a moment to celebrate your achievement and look forward to a positive future.

Congratulations to everyone at Peverel Court Care, as you have been awarded a ‘Top 20 Recommended Care Home Group 2020’ Award.

Bartlett’s Residential Care Home


Best care homes near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire - Bartlett's - Peverel Court Care


Bartlett’s is a Victorian country house in the village of Stone, near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. It was built in 1856 for the Bartlett family, when they were the High Sheriffs of Buckinghamshire. It has subsequently been used as a school, but has now been converted for use as a specialist luxury country house retreat for the elderly.

Some of the reviews which have been left on by residents and their families include:

I’ve been living here since May. We are very lucky as we are well looked after. The staff are all very kind and helpful. The degree of cleanliness and hygiene is exceptional. 

Christmas was wonderful. It’s the best Christmas I’ve had for many years and that’s true. We had a great time preparing for Christmas, making hats, jewellery, cakes, gingerbread houses and lots more. I’ll never forget the fun we had. 

Everything is excellent, from the minute I walked in the door I have felt at home.

Helen (Resident)


Since moving into Bartlett’s in May my 92-year-old mother has developed a new lease of life thanks to the exceptional care, beautiful surroundings and sheer “loveliness” of her new home. Apart from being looked after with care and kindness day and night, my mum is encouraged to take part in a wide range of stimulating activities. After a recent stay in hospital when we returned to Bartlett’s my mum said quite simply “It’s good to be home.” That says it all.

LF (Daughter of Resident)


I have been here for 4 months and I cannot fault the care I am receiving. I am very content living in these beautiful surroundings. I enjoy walking in the landscaped grounds. The views of the Chiltern Hills inspire me every day. I feel greatly blessed to have found such a peaceful haven.

AB (Resident)


Not only do our residents and their families enjoy their time at Bartlett’s we’ve also received a rating of “Good” in every category during our most recent inspection by the CQC.


Stone House Nursing Home

Stone House, also located in Stone, Buckinghamshire, was built in 1862 and is the former residence of Lord Baden-Powell. Set in four acres of beautiful grounds, it has been sympathetically converted into a residential nursing home for 35 residents.

Like Bartlett’s, the reviews left on for Stone House have been overwhelmingly positive, including:

I can’t praise Stone House Nursing Home highly enough. Being small the residents care staff ratio is good. Not only is the nursing excellent but there are a variety of activities designed to stimulate residents either in the lounges or individual rooms. The food is good, the decor and grounds well maintained and although the staff are busy they always have time to talk to relatives and to act upon requests as soon as possible.

My elderly mother was loved and cared for at Stone House for the last 18 months of her life. I wouldn’t have wished for her to have been anywhere else.

SD (Daughter of Resident)


My Mum has been at Stone House for a year. My sister and I have been able to relax since she arrived knowing that we can trust the staff to look after her, whatever occurs. Mum has dementia and although we’d dreaded moving her out of her own home, she’s been happier at Stone House than we’d imagined possible. She spends her day in the lounge with things going on around her which keep her from being bored. She has her hair done and her nails painted which helps her feel special. She joins in activities and has been on an excursion giving her a change of scene. Whatever she’s doing we know there are enough professional people around her to deal with every eventuality. She’s had some minor health issues recently and we’ve been kept informed of each setback and kept up-to-date with steps taken to help her and keep her comfortable. At her care review, we were asked what we’d change to improve things and we were unable to make a single suggestion because Mum’s every need is being met.

Yvonne (Daughter of Resident)


From the moment I arrived with my mother the quality of the care was evident. I knew from that moment on my sister and I had chosen a truly wonderful place for our mother. Even after settling her in the superb care continued. The staff are extremely passionate about their care for patients and this continued. I’m just so glad we chose Stone House.

Richard (Son of Resident)


The latest inspection report from the CQC shows that Stone House is rated as “Good” in four of the five areas, and “Outstanding” for Responsive.

About Peverel Court Care

Peverel Court Care is a group of one residential and two nursing homes, located in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire: Bartlett’s Residential Care Home and Stone House Nursing Home in Aylesbury, and Merryfield House Nursing Home in Witney. We are a long-standing family business, providing personalised care, delivered by talented and compassionate people, in exclusive and idyllic settings.

With happiness at the heart of our homes, we recognise and respect the contribution made by our residents to society during their lifetimes. Valued by residents and their families; our reputation, investment in each property, and approach to appointing and developing our staff makes each home unique and the benchmark in premium care.


Personalisation and its importance in delivering excellence in care

We spend our whole lives developing as individuals. It takes years for us to learn who we truly are, what we like and what we don’t like.
When we’re older and we’re relying on care and support, most of us will express a wish to keep our individuality.

At Peverel Court Care, we know it’s important to deliver services that allow our residents to carry on being the unique, special and one-of-a-kind individuals they’ve been their whole lives.

We do a number of things to make sure that this happens for every person we care for.

Personal care plans
Just meeting the immediate needs of our residents is not enough. Every person we give support to has an individual care plan, which we use to tailor our care to their specific needs.

The plan gives us general information about medication and physical mobility issues, whilst also gathering extra details that allow us to add personalised touches to the care they receive.

We want to know a range of additional information, like what people like to eat and drink, how many hours they like to sleep and if they like to take a nap in the afternoons. We also ask to hear about any social or emotional needs they may have, so that we can give them everything they need to feel safe, secure and comfortable.

Knowing this information about our residents means that we’re able to offer a truly personalised care package.

Personal attentiveness
As part of our care plans, we deliver a personal attentiveness that we’re very proud of. We might learn from a care plan that a resident prefers their hair brushing in a certain way, but that they struggle with mobility. When this is the case, our staff will go out of their way to make sure that residents are happy.

Beverley, who has worked at Peverel Court Care as Senior Care Lead for 9 years, says that this personal attentiveness has a tremendous effect.

“Seeing residents smile when I say hello, or even at the gentle touch of a hand, makes every day worthwhile. They trust, they laugh, they smile, they cry, they are individuals and we are there to protect and care for them. What better job is there?”

She says it is this approach to care that makes residents content and happy.

“A smile costs nothing. Residents have confidence in themselves and sometimes even begin to do things independently.”

Personalised care is the heart of our service
The personalisation of the service we provide is one of our main priorities at Peverel Court Care. No one person is the same. Providing excellent processes and procedures is not enough, the way we look after everyone who lives with us must be tailored to the personal needs of the individual. That way, we can give our residents the sense of importance and belonging they deserve. This high quality, person-centred care is at the heart of what we do.
