Tallington Lodge Care Home in Tallington near Stamford has been nominated for a prestigious national Healthcare Design Award. Pinders Awards have been running since 1999 and aim to promote and recognise the very best developments in all types of care-related property.
Tallington Lodge has been nominated in the Best Regeneration Category following an extensive refurbishment and extension project which has seen the care home grow from 31 beds to a specialist dementia care home for up to 60 people.
Nottingham based Architects LineStyle led the project in conjunction with MV Construction, Edward Cooper Young Chartered Surveyors and Samantha Lord Interiors. Finalists will be presented with their awards at a glittering awards ceremony on 11th March at The Royal Lancaster London Hotel.
The new areas of Tallington Lodge feature the ‘Railway Inn’ pub, Gallery café and luxurious lounge and dining areas. The project has seen an additional 31 bedrooms, as well as increase car parking space and a staff training room. The scheme has involved the partial demolition of the old care home to make way for a new sympathetically designed two storey front extension in keeping with the original Regency period rectory.
Country Court acquired the home in 2006 and in 2016 undertook a two-year project to extend and refurbish the home. Tallington Lodge is built from traditional stone, whilst incorporating state of the art design and functionality enabling staff to deliver the highest standards of personalised care.
The care home’s interior décor draws on the local area for inspiration; The Welland Suite and Burghley Suites on the ground floor, are named after the local River Welland and famous Burghley House in Stamford. They feature tastefully designed sitting and dining areas for residents to enjoy. The superior ground floor en-suite bedrooms feature patio style doors opening directly out onto their own seating area enabling residents to enjoy the garden. Residents are able to make use of the ‘boathouse’, a beautiful outdoor sitting area decorated with a nautical theme.
