About Careford Lodge, Residential Care Home in Merriott, Somerset

Meals, Residential Care Homes Somerset


Our dining room is light, welcoming and airy, and our meals are prepared very much in a traditional, home-cooked manner. We like to acquire as much of our food as possible from local sources to make sure our meals are fresh and full of taste. If any of our residents do have particular dietary requirements, then we do all we can to cater for them.


We have a garden and courtyard, both of which are extremely well-tended by both our staff and a few of our gardening-loving residents. If your fingers are a very definite shade of green, then you will be more than welcome to sign up with our gardening club.

Whenever the weather decides to bless us with a warm day, we have external seating so our residents can enjoy the fresh air, and our garden is the ideal place in which to entertain visitors.
