Our History

Belmont Villa residential home was opened in 1984 by Michael and Gillian Twohig. They had room for eight residents, they worked very hard and only employed minimal staff to begin with.  In 1987 they moved to Greenhill Grange, which was a private bungalow on the Critchill Estate of Frome, and began to change the bungalow into a residential home.    Belmont Villa was taken over by Stephen Twohig. Working very hard, he developed the residential home and was able to accommodate 13 residents. Years later he, fortunately, was able to buy the house next door to Belmont Villa, which had a large garden between the house and the residential home.


There were 3 years of planning to build the nursing home and it took a further two years until the nursing home finally opened in May 1996 and could accommodate 31 residents. Since the home opened in 1996 Stephen has remained involved in the home. Sharon Welsh, Stephen’s sister, is the manager of the home.

Belmont Villa Now

Belmont Villa is a family-run care home in Frome. Registered in 1987 we welcome residents for long term care. We offer a warm, welcoming and homely environment with a high standard of accommodation and care.


Belmont Villa is a picturesque Victorian building with a ground-floor extension designed specifically for easy access and wheelchairs. It is built on three levels, is tastefully decorated with period features and is fully carpeted and centrally heated. We have four lounges with televisions and a conservatory reserved for quiet relaxation and socialising. Also three large dining areas. Communal dining is a good practice so we encourage people to eat in the dining rooms but arrangements can be made for people who prefer to eat privately.


Belmont Villa is situated next to the picturesque Victoria Park. It has good views of Cley Hill and the Westbury White Horse, and there are well-kept gardens and a patio with comfortable seating areas for residents and guests.


Belmont Villa is inspected every year by the Commission for Social Care Inspection. You can see our last report on their website.
