Welcome to Butterhill Care Centre


About us


Butterhill lies in Coppenhall, a civil parish formerly part of the ancient parish of Penkridge.  There has been a Lord of the Manor since the 1400's. Around 1558 the inhabitants of Coppenhall including the hamlet of Butterhill ('Butterall') numbered over 120. In 1801 Coppenhall had 332 acres used as farmland.  

Butterhill House was owned in 1849 by Edward Moore and occupied by Richard Wright.  By 1868 it seems to have been                                                                 owned by William Marson, who                                                               was living in Butterhill by 1872,                                                               James Cramer Marson  succeeded                                                           by 1876, although he was then                                                                   not resident there. By 1880 the                                                                 estate was owned and farmed by                                                               Mrs. Lydia Busby, who was still                                                                living there in 1900. Mrs. A. J.                                                                 Busby was one of the chief                                                                           landowners in Coppenhall in 1912                                                         and 1916, but between at least 1929                                                    and 1932 Butterhill House was owned and occupied by T. P. Darlington. Miss Darlington was living there in 1940.  The house subsequently passed to the present Mr. Darlington, and he sold it in 1955 to Mr. A. N. Hillier, who had converted it by 1956 into flats.

The present house was opened as a residential home in 1983 and has since benefited from two purpose built modern extensions, incorporating  bedrooms, a new kitchen and Orangery dining room.

Butterhill still enjoys beautiful surroundings and pleasant gardens in a quiet village.
