Welcome to Lakeside Residential Care Home

Our future is your care

Lakeside is a family run business and the proprietors believe firmly in the role of the family in providing care for all its member.

Lakeside was originally a B&B, but after the family took on the role of carer to a loved one they realised that they wanted to make a difference; they saw that older people often don’t get the quality of care they deserve after a life of contribution. So they took about the task of turning their business into an exceptional residential home and Lakeside care home was established in 2009.

Lakeside is situated a few miles from Okehampton and is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). It lies within extensive landscaped grounds on the edge of Dartmoor including lawns, flowerbeds, and lakes with a footpath perimeter accessible to all residents. The lakes are surrounded by 79 acres of natural meadows and woodland, home to some of Devon’s rarest and most beautiful flora and fauna. All this is set in glorious rolling countryside and has far reaching views with Devon’s Dartmoor National Park as a majestic backdrop.

We have 21 en suite bedrooms on the ground floor and 8 on the first floor 4 with access by a stair lift and 4 with access by a passenger lift. Most enjoy a superb outlook, either across the lakes, or over the Devon countryside towards Dartmoor’s highest Western Tors.

Lakeside provides a caring and stimulating environment for its members and we also provide much needed respite care for individuals, giving families a break from caring for the needs of their loved ones. At Lakeside we focus on making our home as caring and homely as could be, our home has a wonderful feeling of family and belonging.
