Suzanne R (Daughter of Resident)

I am extremely impressed with the level of care and the staff. The staff are lovely and always happy to help. The care home itself is lovely and in a lovely area. My dad gets on very well with the staff and I am happy to leave him in their care.

Emma L (Granddaughter of Resident)

My husband's nana has been in this home for about a year and has thoroughly enjoyed her time there. She's made a lot of friends and enjoys her time in the common area with everyone else. The staff look after her so well and they are so lovely when we visit.

P R (Cousin of Resident)

We had a lovely visit to Cranford recently to visit my lovely cousin. Our first time here and what a pleasant surprise. The home itself is lovely, the features in the old building are stunning, lots of effort had been made for Christmas, well done. All the staff we met were lovely, we were made to feel very welcome.
