Completed in 2014 by award-winning developers McCarthy & Stone, Paxton Court is an architecturally striking, carefully designed to reflect a row of period Town Houses. The development occupies a commanding 'front-line' position within a quarter mile distance of the Town Centre amenities and the seafront of this famous coastal location. Tenby's hilltop position led to its early settlement as a Welsh stronghold, which was replaced in medieval times by a Norman Castle and walled town. Part of the town walls survive to this day and are an attractive feature at the entrance to the old town. From the early 19th century, Tenby became a fashionable holiday destination and its attractions to the holidaymaker are just as obvious today, with the fantastic beaches stretching to the north, the west, and the south of the town. Stroll the narrow cobbled streets of Tenby itself or just sit in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by.

Paxton Court is specifically designed to provide an independent living opportunity specifically for those over 55 years of age. The development enjoys a host of facilities for the benefit of home owners not least of which is the beautiful communal lounge leading to the lovely landscaped gardens. In addition, there is a lift service to all floors, mobility scooter store, laundry room and underground secure parking. Further peace-of-mind is found in the service provided by our House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. In addition, there is also a 24-hour emergency call system in the apartments and communal areas. A guest suite is available to receive family and friends for which a small charge of £30 per night is made.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Paxton Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, fish and chip suppers, exercise classes seasonal and themed events and even the occasional organised trips.
