Springfields Residential Home in Bridestowe, West Devon

Springfields is an impressive, highly regarded residential care business which occupies a former rectory in the attractive West Devon village of Bridestowe which sits on the fringes of Devon’s Dartmoor National Park.

The home has been owned by Stephen and Kathy Byrne since the late 1980s, over which time it has been significantly improved, modified, and extended to provide high-quality accommodation for up to 34 elderly service users.

Stephen and Kathy decided to sell to pursue a well-earned retirement and, following a confidential sales process with Simon Harvey at Christie & Co, the home has been purchased by an existing local operator.

Simon Harvey, Senior Director – Healthcare at Christie & Co, comments, “We are delighted to have been able to facilitate Stephen and Kathy’s retirement and, at the same time, assist the buyers with the growth of their business. Springfields is an excellent home that Stephen and Kathy can be rightly proud of, and we wish the buyers every continued success with the home.

“This sale is yet another example of the demand we are continuing to see for quality care homes across the South West, which has been the case for some time with indications currently suggesting that this is likely to continue as we move through the remainder of this year and, most probably, beyond.”

Springfields Residential Home was sold for an undisclosed price.
