Our Home

Cedar Court is designed as modern and spacious with a lot of natural light.  It is a registered home for older people with nursing and dementia care needs as well as having a specialist unit for younger people with disabilities.

It is registered with the Care Quality Commission and is within easy reach of local shops and major road routes such as the A40 to Oxford and London.

Experienced registered nurses and care assistants, selected for their skills, operate a 24 hour service, delivering a high standard of care to suit individual nursing care needs.

An experienced Manager supervises the day to day running of the home and ensures that the care delivered encompasses social, physical, psychological and environmental needs.

Witney is the largest of the market towns in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and much of the architecture reflects the past prosperity of the woollen trade, including the 17th century Butter Cross and Church of St Mary the Virgin with its 150ft spire.

An attractive high street runs from the Butter Cross and features the 18th century town hall, the Blanket Hall and the Victorian Corn Exchange.  The town has a bustling atmosphere with a good range of shops, supermarkets and a twice weekly market.  Annual events include the autumn Witney Carnival and Witney Feast, nearby Eynsham Carnival and Wychwood Forest Fair.
