Part of the Milkwood group since 2005, Applewood is one of the most homely Care Homes in Basingstoke, Hampshire and offers short- or long-term residential care for the elderly. As an EMI-registered home, we’re able to provide specialist care for the mildly confused.


A former manor house, known as Bramley Dene, Applewood has been carefully modernized to provide accommodation for 38 residents, male and female, over the age of 65. Its 32 single and three double rooms, many with views over the gardens, are on two floors, with passenger and stair lifts making the house suitable for wheelchair users.


Light and airy, Applewood has two comfortably furnished communal lounges with televisions, video and music centres. There is also a quiet room, adjacent to the entrance, for use by residents and visitors. Meals are served in the large, bright conservatory. The house, which retains many of its original features, is surrounded by newly-established gardens, giving it a peaceful, secluded atmosphere, near Basingstoke in Hampshire.


Our fully-qualified staff provide the very highest standards of care to our resident 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We have an enthusiastic support team, providing a broad programme of structured activities, including reminiscence therapy, musical movement, flower arranging and other crafts that residents can join in as and when they wish. Applewood has the use of a company minibus, and staff organize regular visits and outings.


A home full of character, Applewood combines the convenience of a village setting not far from Basingstoke, Hampshire, with modern comforts, tranquillity and privacy.


All public areas are non-smoking.
