Golden Years


Luxury elderly care provider Hadrian Healthcare Group’s newest home, The Manor House Knaresborough, is now open and providing a fabulous home from home for elderly residents.

The Manor House is at Hambleton Grove in Knaresborough. Inside it is light, bright and spacious. Furnishings are luxurious and comfortable, and carefully chosen colours, textures and accessories create a homely feel in a traditional style with a contemporary twist.

Karen Johnson, manager at The Manor House said: “We’re right in the heart of the community and we aim to provide the highest quality of residential, dementia and respite care for elderly people.

“Each person’s care is based on their individual needs. We make sure each person is involved in the decisions about their care and accommodation so they can enjoy their life with us to the full.”

All suites are beautifully appointed each with private ensuite bathroom facilities. There is a bar and café, numerous bistros and a purpose designed hair and beauty salon as well as a whole suite dedicated to resident wellness including massage, foot spa and occupational therapy.

Our ‘Chesters’ accommodation in The Manor House is specifically designed to provide surroundings that are homely, safe and stimulating for people with dementia and other memory impairments. Staff are specially trained and at all times care is individualised and person-centred.

As well as care staff, a team of in-house chefs prepare all the catering using locally sourced fresh produce, and a lifestyle co-ordinator organises social and special interest activities.

Visitors are welcome to come along and see our facilities first-hand and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.
