Welcome to Southlands...

…a really lovely residential and retirement care home in a former Victorian vicarage, which serves the village of Highweek, and the greater Newton Abbot, South Devon area.

Here, you’ll find a vibrant, supportive and laughter-filled community – for both residents and their families. Our friendly, kind and expert staff are known for providing the very best care – and we’re happy to do so on a permanent, convalescent or holiday basis as suits your needs. But don’t take our word for it. Look at our inspection report on the Care Quality Commission (CQC) site or come and experience Southlands for yourself.
