Burrswood Health & Wellbeing, a place of whole person care located in a beautiful nineteenth century Decimus Burton designed home & gardens. Burrswood means many different things to many different people. Its ethos of ‘whole person care’ is its common thread, weaved throughout its Healthcare, Social Care and Spiritual Wellbeing services.
Burrswood is a place to recuperate through the care of our nurse and therapy led team who are passionate about giving equal measure to a patient’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs during the healing process.
It is a place to restore wellbeing with our spiritual wellbeing and chaplaincy team, their approach allowing all who visit to feel welcomed, whether staying as a guest, a patient, visiting to take part in events or just enjoying the tranquility of the gardens.
It is a place to relax in our well-appointed guest accommodation whilst you explore the picturesque gardens & surrounding areas of Kent and Sussex.
It is a place to worship in Burrswood’s Church of Christ the Healer, the only church in the UK specifically built for healing services.
"Burrswood is a truly unique place, keeping its promise to care for the whole person in a way which cannot be described in words - it has to be experienced for the profound impact of that promise to be realized. So often illness is seen as a problem and then you, the patient, become the problem; a broken machine that needs repairing rather than a human being needing to be listened to and reassured; not only a body, but a mind and spirit too."
