The dedicated House Manager is on site during working hours to take care of things and make you feel at home. 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.

For your peace of mind the development has audio 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).
