We believe a home should be

  • Where each person is an individual
  • Where there are no unnecessary rules and regulations
  • Where dignity, peace and comfort take priority
  • Where companionship, interest and activity flourishes.
  • And where people are supported to lead the fullest possible lives

The Old Vicarage Care Home is located in the renowned conservation village of Weekley in Northamptonshire. Designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield in 1872, this listed building has operated as a residential care home for the elderly since 1984.

The care home in Northants is situated less than 2 miles from Kettering Town centre, a short distance from the A43 Northern Bypass and within easy reach of Corby. The care home is within a short walk from the church, local sub-post office and tea-room.

The house enjoys an impressive south-facing position in the centre of this much sought after village. The gardens, which have been nationally featured, together with grounds of 1 acre, look onto the Boughton Estate home of the Duke of Buccleuch, the heir of the Montagus’.

The county of Northamptonshire was historically famous for being the boot and shoe making capital of the world in the early 19th century, whilst Dr Martens still has it's UK base in Wollaston near Wellingborough.

The Old Vic is a friendly, professionally run care home for mainly elderly residents. We have a mix of residents, some requiring nursing care and we also offer respite care. Most of our residents come from or have family in the surrounding areas of Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough, Northampton or Peterborough.
