Newbury is an affluent Home Counties town with some buildings dating back as far as the 17th Century. After economic decline following the English Civil War the town’s fortunes were revived in the 18th and 19th centuries with the regular summer exodus of Londoners to ‘take the waters’ at Bath. Newbury presented a natural stopover point lying directly half-way between the two cities. As a consequence a large number of coaching inns sprung up in the town during this time.
Continuing in this tradition of providing exemplary accommodation, the new care home is located on the site of a former guesthouse and was compelted in September 2016.
