Testimonials
Lexham Park is light and spacious, the rooms are large, well maintained, modern and homley. Lexham Park has a lovely community feel, everyone is made to feel welcome and part of a larger family. It does not have an institutional feel at all. You noticed it as soon as you walk in.


Our mothers last years at Lexham were the very best that we could have wished for. She was always treated with respect and kindness - Thank you!

As a short stay resident I was made to feel at home, warm and welcoming. The food was wonderful, got me back on my feet again.
