property description


Cheswick Court

Constructed in 2016 to a contemporary style by renowned retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, and occupying a very convenient position close to shops and bus routes, Cheswick Court provides a fantastic lifestyle living opportunity for the over 60’s. A ‘retirement living’ development designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by our house manager who oversee’s the smooth running of the development. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system.

The development has a wonderful friendly community feel, reflected by the Grand Piano situated in the communal entrance where homeowners enjoy piano lessons - just one example of the many social activities on offer, these include; fitness classes, coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, themed events and occasional organised trips to the Theatre, coast and country. It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Cheswick Court and whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.

There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.
