Residential Care Home in Newton Abbot, Devon
Welcome to Somerforde Residential Home
Somerforde is a care home for elderly people, specializing in loving care, and is situated opposite Forde Park. It is a detached period home within easy walking distance of the local amenities.
The Home cares for elderly people, providing a level of care which is tailored to each individual’s need. We are not a nursing home; we do however have full support services from local GPs and District nurses.
Jonathan Lobb (the owner) has spent most of his life building large businesses and brands all over the world, mostly in the software industry. On leaving the industry, he wanted to do something that would really make a difference and looked at the care sector, how it was run and how he could apply his dedication and passion to make it great. Having grown up in a family hotel business he understood what great service is and can be.
The most up to date CQC inspection report of 2022 is available on the CQC website.

“When we brought Somerforde, it had a good reputation and a beautiful location, situated on the edge of Forde Park. We have recently carried out a major internal and external revamp of the entire building to provide a wonderful environment.
We have focused on our approach to care using the latest technology available. Besides this, we are proud of our food and entertainment and ensuring that our focus is on the individual needs of each of our residents and providing an excellent home environment” – Jonathan Lobb, Owner
Taking advantage of sunny days and getting out into the fresh air is so important and we aim to make regular use of our gardens and outside spaces, and includes a range of trips and excursions. Getting close to nature by doing a little gardening or bird watching can really lift the spirits.
We also offer trips out, although it’s not always about going far afield. Many of our residents want to visit local attractions or to pop to the shops. Which is why we have in place our activities lead who liaises and plans these trips with the residents and families.
