Due to a rise of cases, in the Tendring Area, we have made the decision to place the home on lockdown. This means that visit will be prohibited. We are available to arrange video calls, so that relatives and friends can keep in touch.

Our management team are working to government guidelines to ensure that the home remains Covid Free, and hope to open for visits soon. We would like to thank everyone for their understanding and commitment in ensuring the safety of all Service Users and Staff

Please call 01255 424077 if you have any questions, or would like an update regarding a Service User.

Penny Pot Care Home was opened in 1950 by a committee of various clubs within the  county of Essex,  and its founder was  Lady Courtauld who opened the home to give elderly people the companionship,  security and worry-free life they desired.

The home was bought by the current owner, Ms. Debbie Carson, in 2007, and has gone from strength to strength, with an amazing and diverse workforce making the home a success.

Penny Pot Care Home is regulated by the Care Quality  Commission (CQC) and Essex County Council. Our latest CQC report can be viewed by clicking on this link.
