Clarendon House, which opens to its first residents on Wednesday, April 6, is in Cornwall's Meadow in Buckingham town centre.

It has 65 hotel-designed and furnished Classic or Premium bedroom suites across three floors, with floor-to-ceiling windows, wall-to-wall curtains and tinted window glass for privacy, and wi-fi access throughout.

Some suites enjoy their own private patios and two of the Superior Suites have lounges with views over Buckingham.

Crown Care Group says Clarendon House offers 'fine dining cuisine' with menus created on site by experienced chefs to provide nutritious meals for all tastes, appetites and special dietary requirements.

On the ground floor, the spacious Thompson’s Bar and Brasserie, with patio access into the grounds, provides coffees, teas and freshly made cakes and pastries.

Other facilities include the Chandos Cinema, Waterlily Hair Salon and Snowdrop Treatment Room, where residents can relax and be pampered.
