Castle House gets awarded CQC Outstanding

24 March 2017

We are pleased to learn that Castle House Nursing Home in Keinton Mandeville, Somerset, has just received an Outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission.

DKA designed a new extension providing 17 additional bedrooms, a new entrance, lounge and external landscaping along with refurbishment of parts of the existing home that was completed last year, increasing the home’s capacity to 45 rooms.

We understand that CQC only award Outstanding to 0.5% of Nursing / Care homes in the country and are very proud that 2 of the homes we have designed additional facilities have then gone on to achieve this.

The other being The Old Vicarage in Leigh, Dorset, where a few years ago we designed an extension to provide 8 additional bedrooms, extended the communal Lounge and Dining Room, along with creating a new kitchen and refurbishing parts of the existing building.

All at DKA would like to congratulate Jo Marshall and her staff at Castle House for their hard work to achieve this.
