The Beeches stands in 2 acres of land and was originally a rectory.

It has been extended over the years to provide a variety of room styles varying from the old and gracious to contemporary.

The majority of the The Beeches is on the ground floor with four bedrooms on the first floor, which are accessed by one staircase and a stair lift. The day spaces are on the ground floor and include a reception hall, one large communal lounge, together with two small intimate day rooms, and a Dining room. The Beeches also has two courtyards which are both in bloom during the summer. A newly built conservatory offers a beautiful view into the recently landscaped gardens. Residents and relatives are free to walk in the garden when they wish. The Beeches also has music events and barbecues outdoors. Set in the heart of the Norfolk Countryside, we are in the village close to the church with open farmland next to us.

Quiet in the summer and beautiful in the winter, East Harling is close to the border of Suffolk, another picturesque county. The city of Norwich is 20 miles away, with two cathedrals, two large shopping centres, national shopping chains and entertainment.

  • The Beeches is a Care Home for the Elderly with a separate wing for those falling into a Dementia Category.

Overall I am very happy with Mum's care and how she is treated. The staff are friendly and caring and I appreciate all they do. I like that they all know and use the residents' names. To make it the perfect home, I would like to see more varied entertainment/activities and would like the programme emailed to me each month. Also, I would like regular (3/6 monthly) meetings offered by senior staff to update on Mum's circumstances.

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.
