50 years of caring in Somerset and Devon

Netherclay House is a family owned and run business and part of a group of care homes.

Netherclay House opened with one resident in 1971. The business grew and in those early days, residents and staff joined the family for meals. A Georgian property on the river tone, with views of the Quantock Hills, Netherclay House was a slice of the good life with free range chickens and home-grown fruits and vegetables. We extended it in 1987. Eleven rooms in the old house were joined by an extra twenty five and we built five close-care apartments in the grounds.

As care needs increased in the local community Netherclay Home Care, a domiciliary service was created. Netherclay Home Care ran from 1994 to 2023. At its height it delivered over 3000 hours of care covering Taunton, Wellington, Bridgewater and surrounding villages.

Netherclay house is part of a family run group of care homes, including Chelston Park and Chelston Gardens, who respectively provide general nursing and specialised dementia nursing care for residents.

We are a local provider, with local knowledge and nationally recognised standards.

We are committed to delivering high quality care and support which is responsive to people’s needs and preferences.

In total we provide 121 beds for residential, nursing and dementia care in Taunton and Wellington and employ almost 200 members of staff.
