Barnhill Court

Barnhill Court, Barnhill Road, Chipping Sodbury, Bristol

property description



Completed by award-winning developers McCarthy Stone in 2015, Barnhill Court occupies an excellent position - an easy 10-minute level walk to the thriving and historic Chipping Sodbury High Street with its origins dating back to the 12th Century. In addition, a Waitrose supermarket is very close by with easy pedestrian access.

This is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development providing private apartments specifically for those over 70 years of age and is designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager who oversee the smooth running of the development.

Homeowners benefit from one hour of domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets. 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.

The development boasts a host of facilities for the enjoyment of home owners, not least of which is the beautiful communal lounge which is the hub of social activities. There is also a restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch. In addition, there are lifts serving all floors, mobility scooter store, laundry room and a lovely landscaped garden.

There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small nightly charge applies. It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Barnhill Court - there are always plenty of regular activities to enjoy. These may include: coffee mornings; art group; fitness classes; film night; games and quiz night;, seasonal and themed events and occasional organised trips. 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.
