An Introduction To Westhampnett House
Our aim at Westhampnett House is to ensure that our residents live comfortable, happy and fulfilled lives within a friendly and caring atmosphere. We aim to provide a standard of care that gives peace of mind to families who entrust us with the care of their loved ones. Whether they seek a comfortable home and assistance with everyday activities/tasks, more complex nursing care or companionship of day care, we have the facilities and experience to care for our residents for as long as they need. We also offer short term respite, for those seeking care for their loved ones during a holiday or break.
We are determined to offer our residents the best nursing and care, and create an atmosphere where they don’t just feel cared for – they feel at home.
Anchored by our beautiful Grade II listed Georgian main building, Westhampnett House has been sympathetically restored to a level of grandeur that echoes its past. Rich in period features such as chandeliers, high ceilings, bay windows, swags & tails, wooden beams, flagstone floors, antique furniture, and large reception rooms, the grande lady has been pampered with all the modern trimmings and fittings and looks resplendent in plush carpets, antique and bespoke furniture, and designer themes.
Our rooms have been redecorated according to five themes and are fitted with the latest profiling beds, bespoke furniture, flatscreen TV’s, in most cases full wet-rooms, beautiful chairs, bedding and curtains, and a computerised call system.
Our rooms range from a few single high dependency rooms situated around the nurses’ station to luxurious suites finished to a standard that rivals luxury hotel accommodation. Almost all of our rooms have views over our beautiful gardens, and some boast French doors that open onto the garden. In addition, our East facing upper rooms overlook our listed Dovecote and duck pond. Other upper rooms look south over the gardens towards the apple orchard and the beautiful neighbouring St Peters parish church.
In some cases we have been happy to assist residents add to the decor of their Suites with their own pieces of antique furniture and art. Our maintenance manager was also happy to change the feature wall colour in one of our residents suites to one that our resident was happier with. Our residents see Westhampnett House as their home, so we try as hard as we can to make it feel like their home.
We believe that a sumptuous pampered environment is a great elixir, and together with the outstanding levels of care that Westhampnett House has become known for, is the right combination to nurse our residents back to good health.
Well known in the area for providing a high level of care, Westhampnett House is set on 3.5 acres of West Sussex’s finest parkland, on the outskirts of the historic city of Chichester.
This fine property nestles at the foot of the beautiful South Downs, adjacent to the Saxon parish church and Goodwood Estate, and once formed the heart of the original Roman village. Stane Street, on which the property is set, is known as the “biggest physical mark the Romans left on Sussex,” as it formed “the great, straight road from Chichester to London.” Like its surroundings, Westhampnett House is steeped in period history.
Westhampnett House has a reputation amongst Residents and their relatives alike for providing fine food and a welcoming atmosphere in a place you can call Home. We offer an everchanging seasonal menu which residents look forward to each quarter. This includes anything from a traditional English trifle in the summertime to warm custard and cakes for the frosty winter evenings.
Boasting its own listed Dovecote, pond, apple orchard, and stunning gardens, the handsome Grade II listed Georgian building together with later additions provide an idyllic setting for the nursing and recovery of the 32 residents that our Home caters for.
We promise good, warm, old-fashioned care and hospitality. Come and visit us, to experience this.
