About Carberry Residential

For 25 years, Carberry House has specialised in welcoming the elderly to our family-run care home. Registered for 27 residents, the home is located in the scenic and historic grounds of Carberry Estate, near Musselburgh.

No Place Like Home

Situated in rural Musselburgh, Carberry is an attractive B listed building with a historical past and links to the Royal Family. The care home has been extended and modernised, giving plenty of unrestricted access to the spacious secure dementia friendly gardens.

We understand that a change of living arrangements can be a challenging time, that’s why we like to get to know our prospective residents by talking to not only them, but also their family and friends, to find out as much as possible about their interests, history, likes and dislikes etc before they join us so that we can make the adjustment smooth as possible.

We also offer trial visits to the home, prior to admission, to see the facilities and meet the other residents and staff.

Great food is one the greatest enjoyments in life. This should not stop because you move into a care home. You will find an enticing and varied menu on offer every day. Our Chef and her team cater for all food preferences and all nutritional and dietary requirements.


Bedrooms are generously sized with nurse call bells and the majority are en-suite. Residents are encouraged to bring their own personal effects to individualise their rooms to promote reminiscence.
