property description


Thackrah Court

Built by McCarthy Stone, Thackrah Court is an upscale, assisted living development for the over 70's.

The development consists of 60 one and two-bedroom apartments with design features that make day-to-day living easier. This includes kitchens with raised level ovens to minimise bending, walk-in showers, simple lever taps, slip resistant flooring and grab rails.

As well as enjoying the privacy of your own apartment, you can call into the homeowners’ lounges if you feel like company - these are lovely places to meet up with friends or join in the activities. The lounges are also the perfect spaces to invite friends and family over for special celebrations or informal get togethers.

Open every day, our table service restaurant serves tasty and nutritious lunches for our homeowners plus friends and family; and 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.

Thackrah Court offers a guest suite for visitors who wish to stay (charges apply).
