"It was brilliant growing up here at Huntington House, and I most certainly share my parents’ passion of wanting to help everyone in our care and make their lives as happy, healthy and stimulating as possible. Huntington House has a fantastic reputation that we have worked very hard to achieve, and Langham Court, which was built in 2013, offers ‘Outstanding’ dementia care – I couldn’t be prouder of this and hope that we can keep providing such fantastic care to our residents for many years to come."
"I love how we’re a big family here at the Huntington & Langham Estate, with my parents, brother, husband and children all here, and our extended family of staff and residents – it really makes this place special. I’m so proud of what my parents have achieved over the past 40 years, providing such high-quality care to this area over an incredibly long period. With Langham Court now offering ‘Outstanding’ specialist dementia care and Huntington House still offering first-rate residential and nursing care, I’m excited to see what the next 40 years shall bring for us all."
"When I first met Marilyn, her passionate approach to elderly care really moved me. We married in 1984 and at this point, I became a Director here, with a mission to create the best possible environment for our residents to enjoy. From early extensions to current renovations, along with the build of Langham Court – which I’m pleased to say provides ‘Outstanding’ care – I have made sure that the high standards everyone expects from us have always been upheld. I couldn’t be prouder of what Marilyn has achieved, creating one of the very best care homes in the county, if not the country."
"I never thought that when I purchased Huntington House back in 1977 as a derelict building that I would be standing here over 40 years on, having made such a difference to many local people in their later years. It took three months to renovate the building with a lot of hard work between myself and Jimmy – my magnificent maintenance man – and I feel so privileged to still be a part of it today. It’s an absolute honour seeing how much we help so many people each and every day, which is what inspired me to start out in the first place."
Our entire team at the Huntington & Langham Estate is part of the family, as we all share the same ethos that all care matters, and everyone is willing to go the extra mile to keep our residents happy and healthy. Here are just five of the many friendly faces you’ll see around our homes – be sure to say hello when you come and see us!
It’s wonderful getting to know residents from all walks of life, all with their own fascinating stories to tell – here are some of our current residents telling their own tales.
Pleasant, happy, comfortable stay with excellent staff who looked after me extremely well.

Thoroughly rested (which was what I needed). I am very well fed - I feel it has done my general health good. I was very well cared for during 3 visits to the day clinic and surgery. I could not have...

I enjoyed friendships and the support of all the staff.
– Helen Donson
To come here after surgery and before being able to manage at home alone was very beneficial. All the staff were attentive, patient and cheerful. The food was a bonus, well cooked, balanced with...

– R Hazel Coleman

– Kate Madel
My mother has been at this nursing home for several months and has received excellent care throughout this time. The staff - across all areas - are very professional and dedicated and at the same...
...time, exceptionally caring and kind. Residents are treated with great warmth and dignity and in particular, are treated as individuals. The food is very good with choices each day and a range of alternative options and the rooms are very comfortable and kept very clean. Outside, the gardens are lovely and on a level for residents to be able to enjoy easily. There is an excellent activities and trips programme too.
– Parthe Ward
I am very happy living here.
– Mary Brown
Very satisfied with the care my mother has received even the past (nearly 3) years. Home is bright, friendly and nicely "non-corporate". The attitude of staff towards residents is warm and...

– John Wright
Caring and understanding by staff in all situations. Nothing is too much trouble and individual needs are met.
– Susan Bennett

My father and mother have lived in his excellent nursing home for 9 and 3 months respectively and are very happy there. The premises and facilities are luxurious and cosy, their rooms are spacious...
...with en-suite facilities and lovely views of the beautiful grounds. The food is 'just like home made' and served in an airy conservatory restaurant and they can order what they like during the day. Most important, the care is very good and the staff and family who run the home are fantastic - very professional but also warm, friendly and genuinely caring. So all in all, my parents feel happy, settled, stimulated, relaxed and safe in this wonderful home from home.
– Alison Hanmer

– Joan Banks

...different person from the one that arrived here.
2 years ago my husband, now sadly deceased, stayed at Huntington House for several weeks and experienced the same wonderful care.
– Kate Livingstone
I came to the home on the 6th of December as I had a fall onto soft ground in Haslemere. After visiting the minor injuries clinic, the doctor told me (after an x-ray had been taken) that I had broken...
...a small bone in my pelvis. This presented quite a problem as, where I live, I had signed when I bought the flat that I could look after myself and cook and care for myself. Temporarily, I needed a care home to recover and be back to looking after myself.
As a result, I booked for a fortnight's care here at Huntingdon House. I couldn't have come to a better place! I have been so well looked after! The care home has cared for me so well and I am improving. After 9 days I am feeling better and the pain is better today. Thank you, Huntingdon House and all of the staff.
– Doreen Day
I came to Huntington House for post-operative care after surgery for a triple bypass and replacement heart valve. The care, professionalism and personal interaction were all of the highest standards...
...and I have been well prepared to return to my own home.
They have worked together with my own surgery to facilitate the difficult task at the beginning to understand and work with the diet associated with warfarin medication. The care assistants are friendly, thoughtful and thorough, the food is varied and tasty and cleanliness is first class. I felt too unwell to take part in the numerous and interesting activities.
– Marion Warren
I would like to commend the care given to me, especially in these departments. Hospitality, the nursing staff, the carers (day and night) and of course the manager and owner.
– Marion Tinsley
I have been surprised by the standard of service in all respects. The staff have been very attentive especially in informing health standards. Medication has been looked after and made sure that the...
...necessary medication has been taken. The food has been excellent and even requests from the norm have been made, they have been dealt with very well. Finally another word in praise of the staff who have always been helpful, pleasant and cheerful even when some of the tasks they have to perform have not been very pleasant ones.
– Valentine Fisher
I moved into Huntington House having spent the previous 8 months travelling from hospital to the nursing home and this was to be my final visit to the nursing home to enable me to return home. From...
...day one I was encased in a loving caring atmosphere with dedicated staff looking after me day and night and I am now returning home to face normal life with the help of everyone.
– Elizabeth Kesley
I think Huntington House is a very lovely place to live. I enjoy the trips out. The care staff are lovely. The manager is most kind and helpful, could not be better. Food needs to be more tastier,...
...especially the meat. All the staff are kind and supportive. I enjoy living here and could not find anywhere else better than here.
– Betty Burren
As far as I am concerned I am in the best possible home for me. My son found the home and his decision was correct. I enjoy the people the building the staff are very good.
– Audrey Burwood
Langham Court is a nursing home for residents with dementia. It is an amazing home ...the staff are friendly, caring and professional. The home has adopted the Butterfly scheme for dementia which...
...creates a family like atmosphere and caters for the personal needs of each resident. My husband is very fortunate to be here and for myself, I feel confident that he is being looked after extremely well.
– Carol Theobald
I have had experience of care homes in the past and Huntington House is by far best I have seen. It has a very friendly homely feel to it and staff all seem happy to work there. My mother improved so...
...much there during her 14 month stay allowing a spell in hospital and much of this was due to the help and support provided in the home. It is note worthy that they emphasis the value of animals in aiding recovery and therapy. Overall excellent and would certainly recommend.
– Sandra Godden
At every stage the staff have done their utmost to welcome and care for my mother-in-law. Their co-operation and efforts continue, a year after her arrival, to improve her quality of life and level...
...of contentment. Queries have been dealt with promptly and ideas to increase her engagement taken up with positivity and enthusiasm.

For 40 years now, we’ve been working hard to maintain a fantastic team at all times, and we feel that as soon as anyone joins the team at the Huntington & Langham Estate, they instantly become part of the family.
Our dedicated team of caregivers work around the clock to provide the best-quality care possible, working together to keep our residents happy, healthy and safe at all times. Here's what a few of them have to say about the Huntington & Langham Estate:
Langham feels like a family home, not like a hotel or a hospital, photographs of the residents and staff are everywhere as is the stuff of life - books, toys, instruments, puzzles, hats, musical...
...instruments, artwork. The staff feel like family, no uniforms or name badges, they are very kind and patient. There is lots of laughter and fun evidently going on. Everywhere is kept beautifully clean by very caring housekeeping staff, who stop and chat with residents and visitors alike, the philosophy seems to be kindness and interaction first, then doing whatever task is at hand next. The gardens are beautiful with views towards trees and fields of sheep and horses. The gardens have secure fences so the residents can walk in them safely. There are lots of engaging activities for residents, plus a day Center twice a week that residents can join in with. The food is great, prepared freshly and daily on the premises. Langham is of the best standard a care home could be and recommend it 100%
– Ela Southgate
My relation has been cared for with great respect. They take in the detail of each patient as to what each person's needs are. 80% of the carers are very loving to all and it appears nothing is too...
...much trouble. They have regular doctor, dentist and chiropodist visits, hairdresser salon available once a week, all at the nursing home.
– S Siderfin
I have Power of Attorney for a resident. Langham Court was recommended by a nurse working in the NHS. I already knew the owners but had not visited Langham Court. He has been here for nearly three...
...years and in this time he has been wonderfully cared for, treated with respect and dignity and his visitors have all been welcomed.
– David Morley
Mum has been at Langham court for almost two yeas now and we are so pleased with the care she receives. She is relaxed and comfortable and her key care workers are brilliant. The Alzheimers journey...
...is a bumpy, attritional one, but Langham Court has done everything in their power to make it tolerable for Mum and for us. We appreciate it so much.
