The Shipston Lodge Dementia Café

Dementia is an incredibly cruel disease and living with it – or watching a friend or family member live with it – can be very difficult. That’s why we’re holding a Dementia Café here at Shipston Lodge twice a month, to give those living near our home in Shipston-on-Stour a safe place where dementia’s welcomed with open arms.

Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 2pm – 4pm, the Dementia Café takes place here at Shipston Lodge, and it’s completely free of charge to all those living with dementia, along with their carers.

After opening our doors in September, we didn’t hang about and started our Dementia Café in October. The first few meet-ups have been a huge success, taking place on Wednesday 9th October, Wednesday 23rd October and Wednesday 6th November, and our next session is taking place on Wednesday 20th November from 2pm – 4pm.

If you can’t make it, the following session will take place on Wednesday 4th December. You’re always welcome whenever you’d like to come along and we really hope you can join us in the near future at our Dementia Café. We have created the café to act as a source of comfort and support to all those whose lives are affected by dementia, somewhere to freely discuss experiences and concerns, to make new friends and most importantly, to know that you’re not alone.

If you’d like to learn more about our Dementia Café before joining us, please do get in touch by email or telephone, or feel free to pop in next time you’re passing Shipston Lodge on Tilemans Lane.

A star is born near Shipston-on-Stour – The Royal Oak in Whatcote

Just outside Shipston-on-Stour in the tiny village of Whatcote, there’s a lovely independent pub called The Royal Oak. Recently, this picture-perfect pub has found out that it has been promoted from a Michelin Plate to a prestigious Michelin Star in the Michelin Guide 2020 – what a fantastic achievement!

A typical quintessential English pub on the surface run by a husband-and-wife team, The Royal Oak has been causing a stir since it opened, with food and drink critic Tom Parker Bowles writing this in his December 2018 Daily Mail feature on ‘The 100 cosiest pubs in Britain’:

Very much a local pub, albeit a rather smart one. But chef owner Richard Craven is one hell of a chef. Expect game in season, from roe deer tartare to pheasant with snails. Homemade bread comes with dripping butter, and there’s excellent fish too.

Just a stone’s throw from the stunning Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and just under 10 minutes away from Shipston Lodge Nursing Home, The Royal Oak is in a great location. Simply head out of Shipston-on-Stour towards the villages of Honington and Idlicote and you’ll find Whatcote before you reach Oxhill. It’s a lovely short drive through beautiful Warwickshire countryside with an idyllic destination at the end.

We’re grateful and excited to have such an innovative, forward-thinking pub so close by to our nursing home in Shipston-on-Stour and hope to pay The Royal Oak a visit very soon!

Award-winning whisky and gin in Shipston Lodge’s Lamb Inn

Did you know that Shipston Lodge has its very own pub? It’s called the Lamb Inn and it’s on our first floor above the library. Our pub has a proper bar serving all sorts of drinks, and our residents love it. It’s particularly great when friends and family members come to visit as it’s a wonderful spot to catch up over a beer or glass of wine.

We love to support local businesses whenever and wherever we can here at Shipston Lodge, and that extends to the beverages we stock in our bar. In addition to the old favourites, we stock a selection of local beers, and we also have local whisky and gin.

We’re incredibly lucky here at Shipston Lodge to have a renowned distillery so close by – Cotswold Distillery is the first full-scale distillery in the Cotswolds and it can be found just outside Shipston in Stourton. They started their story in 2014 and just five years later, the company makes award-winning whisky and gin, as well as a wide range of other outstanding natural spirits.

If you’re heading to Shipston-on-Stour soon, no visit is complete without a trip to the Cotswold Distillery. The amazing visitor centre is a popular destination for Cotswold holidaymakers, boasting a shop and café serving lovely lunches, snacks and drinks, along with beautiful countryside views. In fact, the distillery welcomes around 30,000 visitors per year for its award-winning Tour and Tasting, which runs three times a day, seven days a week. They also offer Gin and Whisky Blending Masterclasses in the distillery and in their shop in nearby Broadway, giving enthusiasts an opportunity to learn more about the award-winning spirits – and even make their own!

With a TripAdvisor rating of 5/5 from 1,889 reviews* and a Google rating of 4.7/5 from 71 reviews*, the distillery’s popularity is undeniable – and its success is only going from strength to strength, as the distillery has just launched its long-awaited Peated Cask Single Malt Whisky, made with 100% locally-grown barley. It boasts a wonderfully balanced rich and fruity taste with subtle notes of peat smoke so if you appreciate the odd dram or two, it might be worth giving it a try.

We’re pleased and proud to stock the Cotswold Distillery’s award-winning gin and whisky in the Lamb Inn here at Shipston Lodge. Our very own in-house pub is a great space that’s loved by our residents, their friends and family members, and we hope you’ll love it too.

Person-centred care is tailored to each individual, and we have a strong focus on the wellbeing of all those who call Shipston Lodge their home.

Shipston Lodge Nursing Home has its very own pub, shop, café, cinema, hairdressing salon, library, three lovely lounges and wonderful landscaped gardens all around. You’ll notice that attention to detail here is second-to-none, with only high-quality furnishings and tasteful décor used throughout.

Our expert kitchen team is here to serve up delicious meals and snacks all day, every day – we also have a private dining room where residents can host friends and family members for dinner, whether it’s for a casual get-together or a special occasion – and it’s part of the all-inclusive care here in our Shipston-on-Stour nursing home.

Shipston Lodge has been designed to be seamlessly integrated into the local community, so keep an eye out for invitations to a wide variety of events in the home’s beautiful gardens or one of the great social spaces inside. Whether you live in Shipston-on-Stour or in one of the surrounding villages such as Honington, Tredington, Darlingscott, Willington or Burmington, our nursing home is here to help, and we can’t wait to meet you.

Our nursing home is easy to find on Tilemans Lane, whether you’re heading from Stratford-upon-Avon, Chipping Campden or Moreton-in-Marsh. Shipston-on-Stour is just off the Fosse Way Roman road, close to the beautiful Cotswolds.
