Constructed in late summer 2013 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Thomas Court is consistently one of our most sought-after developments. This is a ‘retirement living plus’ development providing an independent lifestyle opportunity for those aged over 70 but with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent Estate Manager and staff who oversee the smooth running of the development.
The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a home owners lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied and daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Homeowners also benefit from an hour of free domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages 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.
It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Thomas Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to enjoy. These may include; coffee mornings, art group, fitness classes, film night, games and quiz nights, seasonal and themed events and occasional organised trips (please refer to the development for specific details). Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can be as sociable or as private as they wish. The development is in an excellent position within a level walk of extensive amenities; shops, bars and restaurants, doctor’s library, park and bus routes are all close at hand.
