This is a ‘retirement living plus’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and estate manager who will oversee the smooth running of the development.

There is direct access from the development leading to Vivary park serving as a short cut to town.
