Huntercombe Hall provides residential care, nursing care and specialist dementia care for up to 42 elderly residents. The care home in Henley-upon-Thames is located in the charming village of Nuffield, close to the market town of Wallingford in the beautiful surrounds of idyllic Oxfordshire. Huntercombe Hall is a stunning Victorian Manor House sympathetically converted to provide a care home of distinction.
Huntercombe Hall has a unique and varied history. The Hall had a significant role during the Second World War, playing host to Rudolph Hess and being visited by Winston Churchill on several occasions. The Hall’s historic character has been carefully preserved following its conversion to a retirement home. In addition to beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms residents can relax in the stunning panelled library and dining room or enjoy views of the gardens from the bright and airy conservatory.
Huntercombe Hall’s dedicated dementia wing has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s universally respected dementia care standards. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Each bedroom features a memory box by its front door, where mementos from a resident’s life help to personalise their room and also remind staff and visitors of the individual’s life story.
Huntercombe Hall is ideally equipped to provide residential support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsacoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, Huntercombe Hall is home to our residents. The home has a light, airy and welcoming ambience and residents benefit from a broad and thoroughly enjoyable range of activities.
The Henley-upon-Thames care home offers a full range of residential, nursing and specialist dementia support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Huntercombe Hall operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Huntercombe Hall’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.

"For Les my husband the acceptance of the Hall as his home and for myself the time and ingenuity spent by the staff sorting out his problems. (i.e that various people were out to tell him). Personally I am now able to go to clinic and hospital appointments knowing that he is well cared for. I am grateful." - Mary Todd
"My sister has been at Huntercombe for 4 1/2 years. Her care is excellent. Each and every one of the staff is kind, caring and at all times will go out of their way to help my sister (or me). The home is spacious and the rooms bright and cheerful. I feel very fortunate to have found such a 'caring home'." - Margaret S
"It was good to see that the home had employed a lady who was there 5 days per week - playing games, singing, painting, using wool different ways, all good stimulation for the residents - very impressed. Staff very friendly - treated the residents with lots of care and understanding. Also they are taken out for a meal occasionally. Birthday cake for each resident. I could for on forever!! All in all a great place to be when the needs arise." - Pam Speed
"The home needs people to recommend it to obtain star ratings on the internet for prospective users to see. A way of saying thank you." - Penn C
"At last I have been asked to do something that gives me great pleasure. Recently I had to part with my husband and find a home for him to spend the next years of his life. This building but more the people working in it seemed just right for the job. Gradually he has settled in and has even called the hall home. He has lost a lot of his resentment to his change of life and has even put on a lot of weight." - Mary Todd
