A Brief History

Daneswood is a former small country house hotel set in around 10 acres of landscaped grounds. It is set on the edge of the Mendip Hills about 20 minutes south of Bristol with magnificent views over Weston Super Mare, the Severn Estuary and Wales.

After substantial modifications we opened in August 2006 as a residential care home for up to 17 young adults with severe or profound and multiple learning disabilities.

Daneswood was set up to cater for people who could otherwise be forgotten, people who need a high level of care and support in an environment tailored to their needs. Daneswood was set up to provide a holistic therapeutic out of a philosophy that the people who live with us thrive best when treated with care, compassion and understanding.
