Boutique Care Homes have announced the acquisition of a new care home site in Hythe, Kent, the second in recent months, enhancing the providers pipeline of new homes.

“I am pleased that after much hard work by the team, we have acquired this site to strengthen the group’s presence in Kent. Hythe is a great opportunity for us to continue developing top quality homes, providing the highest quality care to residents. We are very excited to begin work on our latest new development.”
Following a reserved matters planning application in the next few weeks, construction on the care home will commence in late 2023 with Boutique Care Homes committing over £10 million in investment into the local area. The care home will also generate over 70 new jobs as well as bringing a new standard of luxury and family centred care to the area.
