About Clifftop Care Home
We the owners, Christine and David Harrison originally started the care home for our parents as we could not find a home that met our exacting standards. Rather than an institution, we wanted a true home from home where our residents would feel at ease, able to ask for anything and always to be listened to. We cannot adequately describe Clifftop in words or pictures, it has a unique atmosphere that can only be experienced by a visit.Read More
