A beautiful Edwardian home
Compton Lodge is a large, Edwardian house that has been sympathetically extended to provide a high standard of accommodation. It's set in its own beautiful gardens in a quiet residential street between Swiss Cottage and Primrose Hill, in the borough of Camden. Our 30 single and 2 double rooms are comfortable and well equipped, and residents can personalise with their own belongings. Find out more in our Compton Lodge brochure.
We welcome both private applications and referrals from local authorities.
Our staff have close relationships with residents’ friends and families, and strong connections to GPs, hospitals and the community. Residents also value being part of the Hampstead community. Many residents are local to the area and there have been many instances of reconnecting with old friends when they move into the home.

“The garden room at Compton Lodge had huge appeal to us. In non-Covid times we would have easy access when visiting Vivienne, and she has always loved being in the garden. Also the ambience of Compton Lodge was reminiscent of Vivienne’s school in Port Elizabeth, South Africa – and as she had been very happy at school we felt it would bring back happy memories, and that she would fit in well.”
Arts, fitness and activities
We run many regular arts, fitness and activities as well as special one-off events and excursions.

“When my husband became a resident of Compton Lodge I never expected that a care home could be so wonderful. He has settled in better than I ever thought possible, is ‘wrapped’ in love and kindness, and so very well looked after.”
“Compton Lodge has been a very positive move for Dad: he is physically stronger, sleeping better and overall calmer. Staff at Compton Lodge are warm and friendly, patient, hardworking and are well trained.”
