Constructed in 2017 with the first occupations taking place in early 2018, Lambrook Court is a stunning development by award-winning retirement specialist McCarthy and Stone. A ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development designed for independent living for those aged over 70 years with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our Estate Manager and staff who oversee the smooth running of the development. The development enjoys fantastic communal facilities including a beautiful homeowner’s lounge leading onto a raised deck, Bistro with a fantastic, varied and inexpensive menu, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Lambrook Court is proud to be Winner of Housing for Older People with Care Award 2019.
Homeowners also benefit from extensive domestic and care packages being available to suit individual needs and budgets. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies. Even though the development is yet to be fully occupied it is so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Lambrook Court; there will be a growing list of regular activities to choose from. Often these include; coffee mornings, film nights, exercise classes, games and card evenings, cheese and wine evenings, guest speakers and occasional trips. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.
Lambrook Court boasts an enviable location in beautiful and historic Bath, a world-renowned Spa Town and the only one in the UK to have the whole Town granted World Heritage Site status.
