The history of The Lindens Care Home

24-hour private care home for the elderly with respite, convalescent and day care available

The beautiful Lindens house dates back to 1878 and forms the core of our main care home. It was taken over in 2003 by Michael Hannelly and his mother, who shared the vision of creating a warm and welcoming residential care home for the elderly in this beautiful setting in Stoke Hammond.


In addition to the original building with its impressive architectural features, oak panelling and beautiful period decorations, we have our stunning Garden and Meadow Wings which overlook our extensive gardens and the countryside.  Other facilities include: “Hollywood Style” - our hairdressing salon, “Tiffany’s” - a lovely room to enjoy a visit with tea and coffee - and also our well maintained gardens with patio and seating areas.

“Within the woodlands, flowery gladed,

By the oak tree's mossy moat,

The shining grass blades, timber shaded,

Now do quiver under foot;

And birds do whistle overhead,

And water's bubbling in its bed,

And there for me, the apple tree

Do lean down low

In Linden Lea”

William Barnes

The Lindens is a privately owned residential care home for the elderly. Michael, together with his family, has been in the care sector for over 60 years.

Very well-maintained home. Very clean. Staff are very happy, caring people. The manager has changed in recent times, so a lot of things have improved. Especially the communication with family.
