Family-run Bristol care home sold to first-time buyers

Gwendoline House in Bristol, Somerset has been sold to first-time buyer Dorchester Care Homes.

Gwendoline House is registered with the CQC to provide care for up to 16 residents. It was previously owned by the Moss family and was brought to the market to allow them to retire.

Following a confidential sales process with Oliver McCarthy at Christie & Co and with funding sourced through Jimmy Johns at Christie Finance, the home has been purchased by first-time buyer Dorchester Care Homes, trading as Dorchester Healthcare.

Duncan Moss, previous owner of Gwendoline House, said: “It has been a pleasure to own and run Gwendoline House for all these years and to provide much-needed care to the local community. We are pleased to be passing the business on to Dorchester Care Homes who, I’m sure, will build on its success over many years to come.”

Dorchester Healthcare, new owner of Gwendoline House, commented: “Gwendoline House Residential Home is now proudly operated by Dorchester Care Homes, trading as Dorchester Healthcare. Our 16-bed facility offers a warm and welcoming environment where personalised care and attention are our top priorities. At Gwendoline House, we emphasise comfort, safety, and well-being, ensuring each resident feels truly at home. Our dedicated team delivers high-quality, individualised care designed to promote independence and dignity.”

Oliver McCarthy, associate director – care at Christie & Co, added: “It is great to see this home go to a new entrant with a wealth of care experience who will no doubt continue the excellent care that Duncan and his family have provided over the years. I wish them all the best of luck."
