Nightingale Lodge is situated in the picturesque town of Hunstanton, just 300 yards from the brilliant blue ocean and just a short stroll from the town. Hunstanton is filled with seaside attractions, and boasts beautiful views of the sea, with it’s history as a holiday location stretching back to the 1800s.

Within walking distance of the home is a precinct with a post office; shops, public houses, bakery, cinema, theatre, doctors surgery and churches. Our residents are free to visit the local area on their own, or can be assisted by a member of staff if they require extra support.

The facility can provide a home for up to 29 elderly residents over 65 years of age. The home benefits from a beautiful conservatory, a communal lounge, and a spacious garden stretching around the permiter of the home with a patio and raised flower beds.

The Hunstanton has a rating of an outstanding care home by the Care Quality Commission, putting it in the top 4% of care homes nationally.


This bedroom is situated within Southwell Court in Cambridgeshire, and aims to show the high quality accommodation we offer across the group. Size of room may vary across different homes, but all of our rooms include all the attributes mentioned within the virtual tour. Outside and communal galleries feature our residential facilities throughout East Anglia. This is an example of a standard bedroom within the Black Swan Care Group.

During this terrible pandemic, our mother has been kept extremely well and very safe. All of the staff require a medal to thank them for keeping this home COVID free and keeping our loved ones safe, and my sincere thanks go to each and every one of them.
My only negative observation is to check Mother's hearing aid batteries on a more regular basis.

Dining is a hugely important factor in many lives, it is more than simply sustenance. Culturally, both food and dining are at the core of our most joyous experiences in life; weddings, festivals, birthdays and holidays to name just a few.

We encourage our residents to invite their loved ones into the home for lunch, dinner and even breakfast so that meal times offer the same opportunities for socialising as they would’ve done throughout each individual’s life.

What is unique about the dining experience we offer here is ‘choice’, which extends beyond simply WHAT you wish to eat, it includes WHERE, WHEN and WHO WITH. Not only do our residents have a superb choice of meals each day but they have the freedom to eat them wherever they like, whenever they like, and with whomever they choose.

We often incorporate food into our activities, providing buffets at parties and BBQs during summer garden parties. We have even hosted ‘Come dine with me’ style evenings in which favourite meals are pitted against one another, diners then voting for their favourite.

Our catering staff are highly skilled and in addition to their knowledge within hospitality they are subject to our programme of care related training, this gives them a broad understanding of the often complex needs of our residents. Our dining team cater for a diverse range of dietary requirements and have experience in tailoring menus to suit every individual’s specific needs.



Regular activities include flower arranging, art and craft sessions, quiz nights and tea parties. As well as fun events in the home, entertainers often come and visit us too. We have recently been visited by the Salvation Army, musicians and local drama students.

As you would expect, special holidays are incorporated into our activity calendar and birthdays are always celebrated with a party and a big slice of cake!

We invite our residents to join in with choosing and planning activities and encourage those moving in with us to continue with their current hobbies and interests.
