Constructed in late 2011 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy Stone, Wingfield Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent lifestyle opportunity for those aged over 60 with the peace-of-mind provided by support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. The development enjoys superb communal facilities including an excellent homeowners' lounge, laundry room, scooter store and garden area with seating. In addition, 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 nightly charge applies. It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Wingfield Court with plenty of regular activities to enjoy varying from coffee mornings or film nights through to organised day trips. Whilst there is something for everyone, home owners ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.
Despite its quiet backwater setting, Wingfield Court is in a fabulous location less than a mile from the Town Centre, with its superb range of shops, bars and restaurants. Other excellent local amenities, include; Sherborne Abbey, Sherborne Castle, Waitrose, Sainsburys and the rail station.
