About Olive House

Olive House is situated in the small village of Newton Flotman in Norfolk. All of the bedrooms at Olive House include en-suite facilities, and the home incorporates a welcoming reception area, a dining room and many lounge areas. Attractive gardens surround the home, which our residents and their guests regularly enjoy.

There is a dedicated team of staff running the home – many of which are long-standing and know the residents and their families very well. There is also a good group of volunteers who work closely with the community, to create strong ties between Olive House and the local village.

Activities and entertainment

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Olive House. 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:

  • 60 minute bedroom makeovers
  • Gardening and growing
  • Carpet bowls
  • Bingo
  • Quizzes
  • Exercise classes
  • Dominos
  • Arts & crafts
  • Skittles
  • Pamper days
  • Regular outings
  • Music workshops

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.

We hold a monthly residents meeting to talk about the future menu where residents have lots of input. We have food samples of the world once a month and we create a map of the world to show where residents have visited. Every other week there is a cheese and wine evening.

Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. The catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.


Olive House is conveniently situated in the small village of Newton Flotman, approximately eight miles south of Norwich. The village has a range of shops and regular trips are organised to the local theatre, garden centres and the Suffolk and Norfolk coasts. Visitors to the area can enjoy trips to Great Yarmouth, the Southwold coastline and Cromer.

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 the ground floor, our 45 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.

All of 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 pretty gardens, bordered by flower beds, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from 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.
