Fairholme House is a substantial village house that has been sympathetically adapted to provide residential care of the elderly.

Extensive modifications have been undertaken with comfort, safety and security in mind, whilst maintaining the essential charm of the elegant, mainly victorian, architecture and decor.

Fairholme House is set in the attractive village of Bodicote, which has its own churches and enjoys a peaceful country village atmosphere. Bodicote is situated only two miles from Banbury town centre which lies off the M40 motorway, making visits and regular outings very convenient.

Fairholme House provides en-suite rooms that have been decorated to high standards and incorporates many facilities to make life comfortable and secure. Whilst respecting individual privacy, care is always on hand at the touch of a button.

Although the rooms have been decorated and furnished, residents are invited to provide their own furniture or redecorate to their own personal taste. Residents may also arrange for their own telephone to be installed in their room.

During the day, residents enjoy a choice of comfortable, elegant reception rooms in which to relax or be entertained. Visitors are welcome in Fairholme House at all times.

Pleasant lounges provide a variety of facilities for leisure and entertainment including visits from local entertainers and musicians.

The south facing conservatory provides a perfect setting to relax and make the most of pleasant winter days and the garden, specially designed with the elderly in mind, is an ideal place to enjoy the summer sun.

The care at Fairholme House is tailored to meet the needs of the individual resident. We are proud of the inspection reports by our registering authority which applaud our high standard of care.

The building has been well adapted to suit the needs of the less mobile person, without altering its homely appearance. The radio controlled call system, fitted for all 22 beds, is unobtrusive and the modern fire protection equipment has been installed as sympathetically as possible.

Bodicote boasts three public houses, cricket and football pitches, community centre and hairdresser, all a short stroll away and has many delightful country walks nearby.

Excursions further afield to places of historic interest and natural beauty are arranged so that residents can enjoy the scenery available in the Cotswold region. For this purpose, the home has its own mini-bus.
