Spring Lodge is a care home in the popular seaside destination of Clacton-on-Sea providing care for up to 20 elderly residents.  Spring Lodge has the atmosphere of a warm and welcoming home, surrounded by an established and well maintained garden for our residents enjoyment.

The home is located within a quiet residential area making it a peaceful place to live. Despite it’s residential location, the home is only minutes away from local amenities including a post office, off license, newsagents, public houses, bakery, cinema and theatre and a number of high street shops, doctors surgeries and churches.

Clacton is a delightful area to live with all the attractions of a large town, whilst maintaining it’s character and charm present since it first opened as a seaside resort in the 1920s. The town benefits from communal greens and seafront walking trails.  It also features excellent public transport links allowing our residents the freedom to visit other areas of this beautiful region.


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.

I think very highly of this home. The strongest element is the staff and management, all of whom are highly diligent, professional and caring, with very positive attitudes. Visits by relatives, especially Sunday lunch are encouraged. Food is good and varied. Entertainments and activities are usually organised every day (I write as lockdown due to the virus continues thus affecting this aspect). The premises are converted from a residential type property so think cosy rather than clinical. The Home has good contacts with the local GP practice and it is easier for my father to get seen here than from outside. My father's mobility, hearing and sight have been deteriorating steadily, and great efforts have been made to deal with this. Altogether, very pleased with the service.

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.
