Valley Court was purpose built for modern retirement living by McCarthy & Stone. The development consists of 50 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60's. The apartments boast Sky/Sky+ connection points in living rooms, fitted wardrobes in main bedroom and security door entry systems. The dedicated House Manager is on site during working hours to take care of things and make you feel at home as well as 24-hour emergency call system provided via a personal pendant alarm and with call points in the entrance hall and bathroom. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates and security systems. All energy costs of the homeowners lounge and other communal areas are also covered in the service charge. For your peace of mind the development has camera door entry and 24-hour emergency call systems, should you require assistance. The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability).
