About Egerton Lodge

joycewells2

Egerton Lodge was built in 1829 for the Earl of Wilton. Egerton Lodge was used as a base for hunting and socialising for the Wilton family. Hugo Meynall of nearby Quorndon Hall popularised hunting in Leicestershire during the eighteenth century and Melton Mowbray became central as it allowed visitors to take part in three hunts: the Belvoir, Cottesmore and Quorn.

Egerton Lodge was established as a Residential Care Home in 1987 by Joyce Wells.

In 2015 it was taken over by Kris Odedra.

The east boundary wall of the Memorial Gardens on Leicester Road has a fifteenth century archway taken from Nottingham Street.

Since opening we have always enjoyed an excellent reputation as a friendly and homely environment with the highest standards in accommodation and care. Unlike the big coporations we are an independent family run home that pride ourselves on the services we provide in such a grand building.
