Beechfield Court

Beechfield Court, The Parks, Minehead

property description



An immaculate and beautifully presented one bed apartment on the second floor with a lift service. Beechfield Court is located in the sought-after area of The Parks, under half a mile distance to Minehead town centre. The Esplanade and sea front can be reached in less than one mile distance.

Constructed by multi award-winning McCarthy Stone in 2014 Beechfield Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent lifestyle opportunity for those over 60 years of age and is an intimate development of just twenty five apartments benefitting from superb communal facilities including an impressive lounge for homeowners to meet with access to the lovely gardens and a laundry room. 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 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 with 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.
