Lenore Care has snapped up Melbury House Care Home in the village of Dawdon from owners Robert and Susan Roney for an undisclosed sum.

Originally a vicarage, the main part of the property dates back more than a century and retains a number of original features such as stained glass windows and a central staircase.

The 47-strong team at the care home are all being retained, bringing Lenore Care's employee base to 115 people.

Jack and Grace Jenkinson own the care company, which now has four North East residential and dementia care sites.

Across the next five years, further regional acquisitions are on the cards.

Michael Cantwell and Julie Cuthbertson of RMT Accountants & Business Advisors worked with Robert and Susan Roney on the transaction and were introduced to Lenore Care by Michael Wicks, relationship manager at Unity Trust Bank.
