property description


River View Court

River View Court was built by McCarthy & Stone and designed specifically for assisted retirement living for the over 70’s located on the banks of the River Trent.

The development consists of 58 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments with design features to make day-to-day living easier. This includes beautifully equipped kitchens with waist height ovens to minimize bending, walk-in showers for ease of use, simple lever taps and slip resistant flooring.

As well as the privacy of your own apartment, there’s the opportunity to lead a full and active social life. You can call into the homeowners’ lounge and roof top terrace alongside beautiful gardens whenever you feel like company, and it’s a lovely place to meet up with friends or join in the many activities organised by homeowners and the Estate Management team. The lounge is also the perfect space to invite friends and family over for a special celebration.

Open every day, our table service restaurant serves tasty and nutritious lunches for our homeowners and their friends and family, at a very reasonable price. All the food is freshly prepared and we can cater for special dietary requirements. For a special occasion or celebration, you’re also welcome to book our function room.

River View Court also benefits a guest suite for visitors who wish to stay (additional charges apply). For peace of mind, there is an Estate Manager on site and 24-hour emergency call system provided via a personal pendant alarm and with call points in all rooms.
River View Court enjoys prime location in West Bridgford, just south of Nottingham. Though a bustling city centre can be reached in a matter of minutes, West Bridgford's proximity doesn't compromise its charm. Homeowners are treated to peace, quiet and superb views across the River Trent; it's no surprise that West Bridgford is amongst the most favoured retirement locations in the country.
