Beechfield Court

Beechfield Court, The Parks, Minehead

property description



Beechfield Court is located in the very sought-after area of "The Parks" which is under half a mile to Minehead town centre. The Esplanade and Seafront can be reached in less than one mile distance.
Constructed by multi award-winning McCarthy and Stone in 2014, Beechfield Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent lifestyle opportunity for those over 60 years of age. It is an intimate development of just twenty five apartments benefitting from superb communal facilities including an impressive lounge with access to the gardens and a laundry room. The dedicated House Manager provides support and peace-of-mind. 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 a luxurious guest suite for visiting friends and family, available at a modest nightly rate. It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life, there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including: coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, film nights, and occasional themed events. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.

The popular holiday resort of Minehead is situated on the edge of the Exmoor National Park near to some of the very best moorland and woodland countryside where many delightful walks and other country pursuits can be enjoyed. Many of the well known attractions of the West Somerset and North Devon areas are within short motoring distance.
