The Garth is situated in the historic market town of Kington. Located on the English/Welsh border, it has become known as a centre for walking over recent years and is a popular destination for tourists. Built in the Georgian period, the main house has been expanded and now, over three levels, we have 33 single bedrooms. In addition to communal areas both internal and external to include a large decking area, bandstand and a charming garden area.
Alan and Patricia Prior established the care home in 1988 with the intention of providing the best care possible for the community they serve. Rick, their son, joined the business in 1999 taking an active role in business development to incorporate and maintain the family ethos on which the home was founded. Rick continues to be actively involved not only in business/strategy development but in supporting staff on a daily basis and has an open door policy for residents, families and staff alike.
