Head towards the centre of Bridport town and you’ll find Gordon Court , named after Second Lieutenant Colin Graham Gordon, a WW1 soldier that once lived in the parade of houses opposite. The development has offers stylish communal facilities including a lounge, guest suite and beautiful landscaped gardens. It’s the ideal place to live life well.
This development allows you to downsize and free yourself from the responsibility and burden of cleaning and maintaining a family home. Plus, it allows you to live among a community of like-minded people where you may even make some new friends. While maintaining your independence, you’ll also be provided with peace of mind as there is a 24/7 emergency call system and an on-site House Manager during office hours, so help is always on hand, should it be required.
As well as providing you with a safe and secure environment, the gardening and external maintenance of your property is taken care of, this means that you can spend your retirement in the way that you choose. Whether that’s socialising in communal areas, enjoying some peace and quiet in your own apartment or exploring Bridport and the Jurassic Coast; it’s entirely your choice!
Bridport is a beautiful market town in Dorset, located only 1.5 miles inland from the English Channel near the confluence of the River Brit and the River Asker, its tributary.
Although famous as a rope-making centre and a fishing village, Bridport now has a vibrant arts and culture scene, including an arts centre, a theatre, a cinema and a museum, which means that you’ll have plenty to see, experience and explore close to the development.
There are a number of festivals to enjoy, including the Bridport Literary Festival, the Bridport Food Festival, the annual Hat Festival and the Christmas Tree Festival. There’s also an annual carnival that includes a car boot sale, a fete, a funfair and an evening of live music. A torchlight procession takes place the next day, when 1,500 torches are carried over two miles to light a bonfire in West Bay.
Part of the idyllic Jurassic Coast, the local area is packed with beautiful walks and rambles. In the town itself, you’ll also find a football club, a rugby union club and Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club, which includes an 18-hole links golf course, a driving range and a pitch and putt course. For gentler pursuits, you’ll also find a swimming club, a water polo club and a couple of bowling clubs.
The transport connections surrounding our retirement homes in Bridport are great for when family and friends come to visit. Exeter and Bournemouth international airports can both be reached in around an hour, while railway stations can be found nearby in Dorchester and Axminster.
