Beautiful and spacious

The space and layout of Walcot Hall really sets it apart from other care homes. Set in beautiful and spacious grounds, the home has a purpose-built extension, large rooms with en-suites and patio doors leading directly outside.

Walcot Hall is run by a team of regular staff who are committed to always putting the needs of residents first. People love the social side of things at the home such as chatting, listening to music and enjoying the entertainment. There is lots going on and residents can choose to join in with as much or as little as they like.

Activities and entertainment

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of the quality care at Walcot 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’ve even had mini donkeys enter the lift and visit residents in their rooms!

​​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:

  • Arts and craft
  • Donkey visits
  • Poetry reading
  • Musical entertainment and workshops
  • Music and movement classes
  • Board games
  • Flower arranging
  • Gardening
  • Excursions to local attractions

Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents. Menus are seasonal and we also send out feedback forms to residents to give us ideas of what they like and what they would want to see on the table at mealtimes. We believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want – our kitchen is always open.

Our meal experience is excellent, with our chef and catering team working hard to create meals that are both nutritious and tasty and appeal to the needs and wishes of our residents. Residents at Walcot Hall can experience restaurant-style dining in our dining rooms, which overlook the beautiful countryside.

Our chefs and nutritional leads fully assess all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies and special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.


Located in a small hamlet adjoining the market town of Diss in Norfolk, Walcot Hall is very much a local home for local people. Served by good public transport links, the care home is ideally situated for visiting and enjoying family days out, both in Diss and its surrounding area.

Local attractions include Banham Zoo, Framlingham Castle and Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens. The town centre is easily accessible and offers a selection of local cafés and pubs. There are also several garden centres close by.

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

Every room at Walcot Hall has a stunning view. Arranged over two floors, all of the rooms overlook the lake, garden and surrounding countryside. The care home offers a selection of carefully designed and furnished single and double rooms with en-suite facilities and rooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home.

All of the 40 bedrooms are ready-furnished with all 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.

      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.

      If a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a CCG Funded Stay.
