Welcome to Wansbeck Care Home, located in the village of Choppington, Northumberland. This converted former rectory is situated on the banks of the river Wansbeck from where it takes it name surrounded by the stunning Northumberland countryside
Each of our 37 bedrooms some of which are ensuite is furnished to a high standard offering Residents the chance to enjoy comfort and tranquility. At Wansbeck providing independence and choice is very important – One reason we try and encourage residents to personalise their rooms with their own belongings to help them feel at home.
We believe that life at Wansbeck should include the best care, the best of life in the best environment.
All Marton Care residents are supported to live an active and fulfilled life. Our person-centred care ethos puts resident’s health and wellbeing central to everything providing a truly holistic care package.
The facilities at Wansbeck allow residents to enjoy other everyday routines that promote independence, from using the spacious communal lounges, enjoying the gardens and views to utilising the Beauty Salon.
‘Choosing the right care home for a loved one is a significant decision, and we understand the importance of finding a place that feels just right.

Our home has a busy activities timetable, built around the key goals of mental stimulation, increased mobility and social engagement. Activities include arts and crafts sessions, gardening, exercise classes, cinema nights, quizzes, musical performances, and pamper sessions. Each activity is designed to enhance life skills and give a feeling of purpose and self-worth. There is a great variety of activities to try, with new activities added frequently.
The in-house chefs will prepare exceptional food from fresh, seasonal produce that’s locally sourced where possible. Menus will include a mix of delicious and nutritious options including traditional classic meals, Residents’ favourites and exciting international cuisine.
