Cornford House is registered with the Commission for Social Care Inspection as a Care Home with Nursing for thirty older people. The home stands in it's own six acre grounds in the picturesque village of Pembury, a short distance east of Tunbridge Wells.
Originally opened fifty years ago to provide a residence for retired missionaries, the home has now been privately owned by a husband and wife team for the past four years. Cornford House offers long term care to older people with social or physical needs. Registered nurses are on duty 24 hours a day to provide nursing care where needed.
