There is always something going on at Court House. Many of our residents have found ways to re-kindle old hobbies, sometimes with the help of care staff or family, others have discovered interests with their new friends at Court House.
Whilst we offer a wide variety of activities on a daily basis, it is, of course entirely up to individual residents which activities they wish to participate in. Our regular activities include fitness sessions, art workshops and music therapy. Court House also brings in entertainments and activities from outside; from regular visits from the Devon Library service, the Donkey Sanctuary, comedians, musicians amongst many others.
There are two lounges; the first is known as the ‘quiet lounge’. It is often used to quietly enjoy the company of others, read the paper or watching the day pass as our staff attend to your needs.
The next lounge is a little livelier, with a Television at your disposal, and the place where the majority of our activities take place.
For those residents that may have spiritual needs we will again try to find ways of meeting your needs whatever religious persuasion you might be: we have regular visits from the local churches and can arrange transport to local congregations of most faiths for those that are able and wish to retain links with their own faith communities.
Court House is set in about an acre of grounds and there is a secure garden to the rear of the house as well as a small courtyard garden just off the dining room.
They have been designed to be fully accessible for wheelchairs so that all residents can enjoy the outdoor space. Keen gardeners get involved in sowing the seeds for the veggie beds or creating the hanging baskets; activities with are thoroughly enjoyed.

We have regular meetings with the residents to get feedback on the menus and to make sure we include new ideas as well as old favourites. There are always choices offered for all meals including vegetarian options and we will meet any special dietary requirements.
The dining room is cottagey in style and is in the centre of the home. It has its own delightful courtyard garden in which to soak up the warmth of the Devon sun.
