About Bilney Hall

Bilney Hall provides residential, respite and palliative care to elderly people within the local area and beyond. Inside the home there is a calm, friendly and positive environment. Residents can relax in the stunning walled garden and wooded parkland that surround the home and enjoy the beautiful Norfolk countryside.

The home offers a wonderful environment for living and has recently recruited a pet dog called Ebeny. The hall dates back to the 19th century and is a period property that has been modernised throughout and tastefully decorated. The quality of care is very high – staff spend time with the residents and become their friends as well as their carers.

Activities and entertainment

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Bilney Hall. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.

We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.

Some of our regular activities include:

  • Exercise classes
  • Flower arranging
  • Knit and natter sessions
  • Musical entertainment
  • Baking
  • Gardening
  • Sensory sessions
  • Animals visit
  • Pet dog at the home

Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.

Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.

Residents and relatives regularly meet to review menus and likes and dislikes are communicated to the kitchen. Food is planned using a three week rolling rota and cold food and snacks are available 24/7.

Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.


Bilney Hall is situated in the picturesque village of East Bilney, just a few miles from the market towns of Dereham and Fakenham. The home is only a 20 minute drive from the coast line and it is also a short drive to Little Chelsea. Places to visit within the area include Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse and Raynham Hall.

Health and wellness

The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.


Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.

Our accommodation

Arranged over two floors, our 62 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home. The home was extended in 2010 to provide 21 new single en-suite rooms.

All our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.

Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.

Our vast gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from taking exercise to taking tea.

      Terms and Conditions

      If you will be funding your stay privately, please click here to view our Resident Contract of Admission for Self-Funders.

      If a Local Authority may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a Local Authority Funded Stay.

      Your Local Authority might locate/suggest a care home that is/your Local Authority believes is suitable to meet your care and support needs, that is of a lower cost than our required weekly fee. In this circumstance the Local Authority is unlikely to agree to fully fund your stay if you choose to select our care home instead of the less expensive establishment it has sourced for/suggested to you. In this event, private ‘top-up’ payments will be necessary in order to address the shortfall between our weekly fee and the weekly fee funding available from/offered by your Local Authority.

      An additional top-up payment will almost certainly be required if you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home and your Local Authority is only prepared to pay for a standard room. If you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home, the additional cost for that non-standard room will have to be met by top-up payments.

      Owing to the fact that your financial means will have been assessed by your Local Authority, it is very likely that the Local Authority will require private top-up payments to be made by a third party from their own funds. Although the Guidance to the Care Act 2014 states that a Local Authority ought itself collect top-up payments, some require us to collect such payments on their behalf. Should the Local Authority require us to collect top-up payments, we would issue the third party who is to fund the top-up with a contractual agreement for their review and signature.
