Not-for-profit provider Anchor’s Skipton care home, The Mill House, has been selected as a finalist by Knight Frank in their Luxury Care Home Awards 2024.
The Mill House is located on the site of an old mill, overlooking the Leeds and Liverpool canal. The judges were struck by the way in which the home has been designed to blend into the surrounding community, while retaining the original features of the former Mill. Taller rooms and increased window heights contribute to the building’s design to ensure each lounge and dining area benefits from natural light, with the building following the natural curve of the canal to provide many of the bedrooms and private terraces with canal views.
Rob Martin, managing director of care services at Anchor, said: “We are proud to have made the shortlist for such a prestigious award, especially as there are some incredible developments alongside us in this category, of amazing quality and diversity.
“Following The Mill House’s recent opening it has been great to see residents loving the high specification and the carefully curated design of the homes in a picturesque location.
“The Mill House is a timeless piece, with its attention to detail in every design feature providing a unique home where our residents will love living in later life. The wellbeing and lifestyle experiences of our residents are a huge priority of ours, so it’s great to be recognised and we are looking forward to the awards.”
