Poppy's Homecare, in Purn House Farm, provides care for those who are still able to live in their own homes.

A spokesman said: "This is a testament to all our amazing employees and the wonderful feedback to the CQC about our care services."

The CQC monitors, inspects and regulates care providers in the UK, with 'Outstanding' being the highest possible rating.

In its report, the CQC said: "Staff at Poppy's Homecare went over and above what was expected of a community care provider.
