Welcome to The Normanhurst
Residential Care Home and Nursing Home on Bexhill's historic seafront promenade
A warm, friendly, caring environment within a hotel setting, where residents can live in dignity and comfort, whilst feeling safe and protectedLearn more
The Normanhurst is a residential care home and nursing home occupying a large corner site overlooking Bexhill's seafront. Lawns surround the buildings with a large garden at the rear.
The Normanhurst has been in the same ownership for over 50 years, catering for full-time residents, holiday stays, post-operative recuperation and respite care.
We aim to provide an environment in which our residents can enjoy themselves and live in comfort, free from worry. We give every resident the freedom to live life their way, not be organised into activities or lifestyles that they may not wish to follow.
We treat people as individuals with their own wants and needs, which is why all residents receive a bespoke care plan. Our approach is, as near as possible, that of a caring relative.
We are conscious that at all times our residents have a choice and are under no obligation to continue their stay with us beyond the end of the week. At the Normanhurst you are not committed to a particular room or scheme. You may stay for as long or short a time as you wish. You may decide to change your room, or that you require more care and assistance and move to the connected Nursing Home.

It was a great comfort to us that know... he was somewhere that he was really happy. The considerable care, support and kindness he was shown by all the staff enabled him to regain much of his independence... He often had little DIY projects on the go, which the maintenance team were always on hand to help with.

Excerpt from a letter received
Well-trained staff. Very friendly and kind. Keeps family well informed. Good food. Clean and tidy and good activities. Lovely location and is good for walking along the promenade if the weather is good. Great facilities.

I opted to spend a week at Normanhurst for respite following surgery. Proved to be one of my very best decisions. There is no praise high enough for the care and attention I received from every member of staff that I came into contact with. Nothing was too much trouble even at 2 am when I accidentally knocked over the bed table scattering everything sitting on it. I even had a welcome cup of tea given to me. The bedroom and bathroom were bright, clean and welcoming. The entire experience was almost like a family visit to long unseen relatives. While it is true the building could use some TLC, the most important ingredient to consider when choosing a safe place for yourself or a loved one is there in multiples and in common to all carers and staff. i.e high levels of dedication and commitment to those in need of good and loving care.

Wonderfully thoughtful and loving staff have given my relative a place to live that she adores. She feels safe and very well cared for. Her room feels like home from home and she is extremely happy with her meals. The company with staff and residents is something that she values enormously.

A wonderful environment for my mum to be in. The staff are always helpful and take time and care to listen to the family's worries. Lots of opportunities for Mum to be stimulated and have a friendly chat.

I am very impressed with the facility, the situation by the sea, but mostly, the staff. My friend is quite a handful and has found herself in great pain, but the staff a very patient and tolerant. Also, a high level of communication with myself and others around our friend's needs and issues.

My parents are very happy at Normanhurst, and if they are happy, so am I. The staff are friendly and caring to them and me when I make contact. I can see communication improving, though, as I have received a lot more communication since the change in management. I would certainly recommend Normanhurst to a friend.

Mum is eighty-five now and has had various ailments as you might expect. The home has been excellent in obtaining medical attention and keeping me informed at every step.
The staff have always been pleasant, humorous and welcoming.

As a family, we find Normanhurst has an exceptionally high level of care. The overall presentation and feel of the building emanate love and warmth. All the facilities are well-maintained and clean. The staff always go above and beyond to provide excellent activities to keep the residents engaged at all times. This, I believe, is key to their success in caring for these vulnerable residents. The staff's overall compassion and care are truly remarkable. They have all become like an extension of our own family. They will do anything to make our family member feel as if they are in their own home. They have all been very accommodating when we have our special requests regarding birthdays and special occasions. We truly feel blessed that we found Normanhurst for our family member.

I have chosen to write a review on behalf of my family. Our mother has now been cared for since January 2022. When she arrived she was so unwell and it was a very distressing time for her and my family. A year down the line we have a very different story thanks to the kindness and care of all the staff at Normanhurst. She has her hair done twice a week by a fantastic hairdresser, which also lifts her spirits greatly. She joins in and looks forward to the activities arranged by the amazing staff. We know she is safe and well cared for and we're thankful every day!
