Welcome To Alexander Court Care Home

For over 40 years Alexander Court has provided accommodation similar to a hotel exclusively for the elderly, in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate. The home is situated in a quiet residential area, close to the famous Valley Gardens yet within easy reach of the town centre.

Alexander Court is set in beautifully sheltered, landscaped gardens, complete with patios, an ornamental pond and water features. The gardens are a pleasure throughout the year and in 2007 Alexander Court was awarded the Harrogate in Bloom Gold Award and the Yorkshire in Bloom Bronze Award.

The Lounges and Dining Room are furnished in a traditional style in sympathy with the beautiful original features. The conservatory is a haven of tranquility where the gardens can be enjoyed whatever the weather.
