Sandringham is a Care Home specifically designed to a high standard to meet the expectations of the citizens of Bishop Auckland and surrounding areas in County Durham.

There are 92 spacious bedrooms with en suites. Although the bedrooms are furnished to a high standard, we do encourage Residents to bring in their own items to give a sense of familiarity. There are 7 beautifully furnished lounges that boast large flat screen TVs and a variety of chairs and sofas to accommodate Resident’s seating preference. Sandringham has 5 dining rooms with Kitchenette facilities accessible to visitors and families for refreshments, including tea, coffee and homemade cakes. There is also tea room where residents may entertain their visitors for tea. With a state of the art hair and beauty salon, Residents may avail themselves of our visiting hairdresser. Alternatively, Resident’s personal hairdresser can also use the facility. The corridors are wide, light and airy making much use of natural light via light wells and large windows. Additional to the lounges, the corridors are also furnished to offer alternative resting areas.
