Companions Court is situated in the popular village of Wickersley. The development consists of 39, one and two bedroom apartments which have been designed and constructed by McCarthy Stone, specifically with later living needs in mind.
The development sits within attractive communal gardens with a paved seating area and gated private car park. The development has lift access to all floors and benefits from a communal homeowners lounge, mobility scooter charging room and guest suite for when friends and family wish to extend their stay (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability). The communal homeowners lounge is a great place for socialising with friends, family and neighbours and where many of the social events take place.
There is no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates and security systems. All energy costs of the homeowners lounge and other communal areas are also covered in the service charge. For your peace of mind the development has camera door entry and 24-hour emergency call systems, should you require assistance. There is also the benefit of a dedicated House Manager who is on site during their working hours (Mon-Fri ) to take care of the running of the development.
Situated in the village of Wickersley the development is conveniently located within 100 yards of local shops and amenities including a Coop, pharmacy, a choice of restaurants and food outlets and a Lloyds bank. There are further pubs, restaurants and shops on the north side of Bawtry Road and a Morrisons superstore is approximately 1.5 miles away. There is a bus stop approximately 160 yards of the development which takes you to both Rotherham and Sheffield and buses in the other direction will take you to Thurcroft, Maltby, Worksop and Doncaster.
