The Manor House, now refurbished, was built in circa 1588 and extended in the Georgian Period. Extensive alterations were made by the Victorian Industrialist ‘Wildflower Robinson’, so named for his love of wildflowers – over 100 species of which are reputed to be found in the grounds. Examples of ornate decorative carving around the house reflect his interest in nature.
Today the gardens are a haven of peace and tranquility with an abundance of wildlife to be enjoyed in every season. Most of the rooms at Lynhales enjoy unrestricted views over the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.
The main house comprises of two floors of single and shared rooms, the majority of which have en-suite facilities providing accommodation for 53 residents.
The John Sperry Memorial Unit, our state of the art Dementia Care Facility, provides accommodation for a further 20 residents and has been built and finished to the highest standards incorporating many eco-friendly design features.
Our core values – to be compassionate, polite, kind and respectful at all times – are reflected and taken to heart by each and every member of the Rotherwood team. These values form a vital part of our staff inductions and are displayed in the home for all to see.
