Welcome to The Gatehouse Care Home
A warm homely atmosphere for the not-so-very young.
The Gatehouse Care Home is a privately family-owned home that provides residential care for the elderly. We are located in Barton-on-Sea, on the edge of the New Forest, close to the sea and the town of New Milton. The proprietors, Mr & Mrs Breckon, have owned the home for over 27 years and are joined by their daughter Louise Fowle in running the residence, which is managed by Mrs Melanie Sellers.
Formerly a private residence of character and spaciously planned standing in an acre of well-stocked gardens in Becton Lane, five minutes walk from the seafront. Just ten minutes walk away is the local post office and shops while we are also on a bus route to New Milton Town centre.
We would suggest a visit to the Gatehouse which will give you a clearer picture of the facilities that we are able to offer. We are always happy and pleased to meet any intending residents and their relatives.
Accounts are paid one month in advance which includes all the details on our service's page. Our service user's guide and terms and conditions of residency are available on request.
