Visitor numbers at Nynehead Court Estate are on the rise thanks to pleasant weather improvements.

Locals have been gracing the grounds more frequently and key visits, such as that by the former Chair of Wellington in Bloom, have also been noted.

Sampford Arundel Garden Club members most recently enjoyed a private tour of the estate conducted by Head Gardener Justin Cole on a beautifully warm and sunny evening.

Taking in the estate's history while enjoying the beauty of the grounds, their visit concluded with tea and cake in the Orangery.

Offering gracious retirement living, Nynehead Court's comfortable environment allows for both residential and respite care, with 44 registered residential care spaces and 11 close care mews houses within the 18-acre estate.

The highly popular Mulberry Lounge, known for its high staff-to-residents ratio, and independent-living oriented mews homes, provide wide care level options.
