St Peter's Park is in Bexhill Old Town, not far from Eastbourne, Hastings, Battle and St Leonards in East Sussex.
We’re tucked behind St. Peter’s Church, and the seafront is a 10-minute walk away. It’s easy to reach us - we’re on a bus route and just a seven-minute walk from the station.

Yes, we are delighted to be able to welcome visitors back into our home. Our care home visiting policy is based on a strict protocol and risk assessment that takes into account the individual circumstances of each home.
Our experienced and friendly team provide high-quality retirement and residential care, as well as nursing care.
Set in three acres of gorgeous, secure gardens, St Peter’s Park includes flats and cottages for more independent tenants aged 70 or over, as well as residential home and nursing care all on one site.
St Peter’s Park is a bit different to the average retirement home. As well as its stunning location, we’ve got our own chefs, award-winning gardens, licensed bar, a full social programme to enjoy and our own mini-bus for trips out.
St Peter’s Park is situated in the heart of the community, right next to the GP’s practice, village shop, bakery and tea room with Bexhill’s beautiful seafront just 10 minutes away.
Our aim is to make everyone feel part of a real village community, with high-quality living and care for every resident, if and when they need it, and peace of mind for their families.
We really do have something for everyone, to suit a range of different needs and tastes in our beautiful village. Find out for yourself!
Our retirement village for independent tenants over 65 includes 34 studio flats and one-bedroom cottages.
Each property has its own bathroom and kitchen, and the cottages have separate lounges too. Village tenants can enjoy private dining from the comfort of their own accommodation with wholesome, high quality meals prepared by our very own chefs.
The flats and cottages offer self-contained space as part of the St Peter’s Park community. Tenants can make the most of our gardens and communal facilities too – as well as the social life that goes with it.
Our retirement village tenants also enjoy the security of knowing that our care and nursing home is just next door on the same site, in case they need a little extra support or their needs change.
I am extremely happy here and feel safe at all times. I cannot fault the service, kindness and general way of life. The staff are super, very attentive, there is also a lot of laughter and great generosity! (Joan – tenant)
It’s the best of both worlds – our retirement village tenants can stay independent, experience the St Peter’s Park lifestyle and enjoy peace of mind knowing that help is on hand if needed!
Our residential accommodation is for those who need just a little more support.
Unusually for a care home, many of our bedrooms have their own outside space, whether that’s a balcony or a terrace. There’s room for pots, a table and chairs. We have ground floor rooms with direct access to the garden or our courtyard, and our first floor is fully accessible, by stairs or a lift.
The bedrooms are a blank canvas for our residents to personalise with their own photos, pictures and furniture to help them feel at home. It also helps our care team understand what’s important to each and every resident, and build a warm relationship with them.
For those who may need it, our team provides high quality and professional nursing, respite, convalescence and end of life care.
My mother has recently been admitted into nursing care. The staff have made a difficult situation so much easier every step of the way. Thank you. (Linda – daughter of resident)
Our dedicated and highly skilled team members are familiar and friendly faces to rely on, and include an on-site Nurse Manager. We also work very closely with the local GP’s surgery, which is next door to St Peter’s Park. Our 24-hour on call system means help is available at the push of a button.
All our care team workers complete an intensive Agincare accredited training course before starting work. They also undertake regular refresher and specialist training, such as for supporting Alzheimer’s, stroke and Parkinson’s.
Lisa Turner is the registered manager of St Peter’s Park:
St Peter’s Park is unlike other retirement villages or care homes. There’s a different atmosphere here, with a really interesting and stimulating mix of residents, right across the care home and independent living flats and cottages. I’d recommend coming to visit to see for yourself what it’s like.
The deputy manager is Tessa Collins.
Our wish is that everyone feels St Peter’s Park is their home and enjoys a happy and full life. A bespoke welcome programme ensures that every new resident settles into their new home as smoothly as possible.
We’re very proud of our attractive and spacious grounds, which stretch to three acres, including an award-winning wildlife garden, nine-hole putting green and patio courtyards.
It’s all tended by our full-time gardener, who is happy to share his experience and learn from residents during garden walks and talks.
Freshly cooked, wholesome, and locally sourced wherever possible, is the order of the day for our in-house chefs and catering team.
Meals are served in our superb dining rooms, but, of course, can be taken in tenants’ own rooms too for a more private experience.
Good, wholesome home-cooked food is essential at a care home. Using locally-sourced ingredients as much as possible, we cater for all dietary needs, from Coeliac and gluten-free, to vegetarian and vegan.
New menus always go before our residents for comment, at the bi-monthly residents’ meetings.

There’s something to suit everyone in our social activities programme, from entertainment, exercise and flower arranging to arts and crafts, coffee mornings, cooking and much more.
St Peter’s Park enjoys its very own licensed bar and spacious communal lounges to relax in and enjoy with friends.
Our trips in the St Peter’s Park minibus might mean a visit to the shops, seafront and garden centre, or just out for lunch on a lovely sunny day.
We’re next door to St. Peter’s Church and the lovely Christmas carol service is a firm favourite.
I have been here for almost one year in a flat which I rent. I am extremely happy here and feel safe at all times. I cannot fault the service, kindness and general way of life. The staff are super, very attentive, there is also a lot of laughter, and great generosity.
My mother has recently been admitted into nursing care at Peterhouse. The staff have made a difficult situation so much easier every step of the way. Thank you
I was received into Peterhouse at short notice for respite care having sprained my ankle. The care standard was excellent with very friendly and competent staff. Every need was attended to quickly and the food was also very good. I would definitely recommend Peterhouse for long-term or respite care.
I’ve been here for very satisfying respite care, which I have received abundantly with maximum kindness from all departments.

St. Peter’s Park is a lovely place to live. It always makes me proud when inspectors tell us how kind and caring our team are, and that goes for all the team, from care workers through to maintenance and our chefs. They all genuinely care about our residents, which is exactly how it should be.
The team have responded to the CQC’s recommendations under the leadership of our newly appointed Home Manager Lisa Turner who has joined us since this inspection.
Lisa with her wealth of experience has quickly made the required improvements, building on our strong foundations, encouraging and supporting people to lead full lives, whilst being as active as they can be.
Our team take the time to get to know our residents, working with both residents, families and health professionals to be supportive and respectful.“I have no doubt that together with Lisa at the helm, the St Peter’s Park team will go from strength to strength.
