High quality care in a delightful village setting

Colne House is an elegant Georgian property in the picture postcard village of Earls Colne, set in landscaped gardens with excellent views across the Colne Valley.

Its quiet setting, next to the golf club, is the perfect place for high quality residential, dementia, mental health and respite care.

The home is within easy reach of Halstead, Colchester, Braintree and other communities in north Essex and Suffolk.

Colne House exudes old-fashioned style throughout, providing all the comforts of modern living while cherishing the once grand family home’s historic character.

The gardens are a real jewel in the crown, providing wonderful space for outdoor activities or simply a place to soak up the sun and fresh air.

We are proud to be at the heart of the community and local people enjoy events such as the fetes and fireworks displays we put on as much as our residents.

Families have the added assurance of a good-rated Care Quality Commission report.
