Care homes sold off to growing operator

Two care homes in Hessle have been sold for an undisclosed sum.

Tadcaster-based care property specialist, HPC, acted for the vendors.

Woodleigh Manor is a large, Victorian villa with substantial extensions, registered for 34 places. The Weir, located a short distance away in the centre of Hessle, is a traditional Georgian property which has also been significantly extended to provide 31 places.

These care homes have been in the same ownership for more than 30 years and had only become available due to retirement.

Both have been acquired by the expanding operator Curo Care Group, which now operates five care homes across the North, with plans for further expansion.

Mike Kneafsey, director of Curo Care Group, said: “We are pleased to be adding Woodleigh Manor and The Weir into the Curo Care Group. They are two well established homes with excellent reputations in the local area.”

The sale was handled by HPC Director Ian Wilkie. He said: “The homes have been successfully run by our clients for many years, and we are pleased to have been able to conclude a positive sale after a process which encountered adversity along the way, including the pandemic.

“We know the purchasers have plans to invest in the future of Woodleigh Manor and The Weir, and wish them every success in the future.”

Kneafsey added: “We are very grateful to the support provided by Ian at HPC. We found the service and support to be exemplary from start to finish.”
