As the development name implies it is in a tranquil Riverside setting adjacent to the River Okement with mature trees and shrubs around. We have previously described the development as 'unique' to reflect a location that in so many way feels quite rural but in reality is only a few minutes walk from a Waitrose supermarket with Okehampton High Street, it's cafes, banks, pubs, restaurants and two independent shopping arcades just a further short flat walk away. Rivers Edge Court enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. 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 charge of £25 per night applies.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Rivers Edge Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; regular coffee mornings, knitting group and organised coach trips.
