Manor Barn Nursing Home is registered for 30 service users and occupies a Grade 2 listed, 30-bedroom property near Chichester. The Anchorage is registered for 36 and benefits from 36 single en suite bedrooms with planning permission for a separate 32-bed unit in the rear garden. Both homes have registered managers and ‘Good’ CQC ratings.

Acting on behalf of the Directors of Rhymecare Ltd, Charles Phillips at Christie & Co was instructed to confidentially market their two care homes. A targeted marketing campaign was undertaken with an offer being accepted from experienced care operator, Premium Care Group.

Nick Wyatt, Director at Rhymecare Ltd who co-founded the company in 1984 with his wife, comments, “Having been involved in the care sector for nearly 40 years, I felt now was the right time to sell the businesses and take a step back from the busy care sector. It has been a pleasure working with the staff and looking after all the residents over the years, and these are two lovely homes which I am confident will carry on offering excellent care to the residents under the ownership of Premium Care Group.”

Robert Adams, Director at Premium Care Group, comments, “We are delighted to have concluded the purchase of these two care homes and to add them to our group. There are great synergies between these homes and our others, and we look forward to getting to know the staff, residents, and their families. The purchase of these homes demonstrates our commitment to offering great care to those we look after and to the sector as a whole.”

Charles Phillips, Director - Healthcare at Christie & Co, comments, “Having been the selling agent for Manor Barn in 1999 to Rhymecare, I was delighted to be asked to assist them with the sale of both homes last year. These are two well-run, well-presented care homes in sought-after locations, and we were very pleased with the level of interest expressed in these homes. A sale was agreed quickly to the buyer, with the process moving smoothly to a successful completion. There is great demand from buyers for similar homes throughout the south of England.”

Manor Barn and The Anchorage were sold for an undisclosed price.
