The Dales

Luxury Residential Care Home,
Right in the Heart of the Community

© Dales Care Homes Limited

Who we are and what we do

Situated in Ellenborough on the outskirts of the  town of Maryport, The Dales is a family owned and run Residential Care Home offering Long-term Residential Care, Day Care, and long and short term Respite Care. To complement our existing services, we also recently opened our specialist dementia care facility. We have a team of dedicated, experienced and highly skilled carers and support staff, that work together to ensure that everyone who chooses to make The Dales their home is assured of excellent quality care in a relaxed, friendly and homely environment, all at a realistic and affordable cost. We first opened our doors in November 1986 and over the last twenty six years or so,  have established an enviable reputation for the care and facilities that we provide.


If you would like any further information about the facilities we offer and the packages of care that we provide, do please take a look around our website, contact us for a brochure, or better still, drop by for a chat and a coffee and we can then show you around our home and let you see first hand, all that we have to offer.

The Dales and the people who choose to make it their home continue to be very much a part of the local community, and we therefore continue to actively support the Ellenborough Village Group (EVG) with its local history and family tree projects

Our part in the local community

It’s all very well for us to rabbit on about what we have to offer, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Read what our clients, their families and friends, and also  the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have to say about us.
