Blake Court is a development built by multi award-winning McCarthy Stone to offer a fantastic independent 'Retirement Living' opportunity for those aged over 60.
The development has a wonderful friendly community feel, with a host of activities to enjoy thus making it really easy to meet new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life. 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 excellent communal facilities include a super lounge for homeowners, scooter store and lovely landscaped gardens.
The development occupies a very convenient position close to the heart of the market town's centre and is therefore extremely convenient to all major amenities and bus routes. Blake Court provides peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development and the benefit that 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 per night applies. Car parking, subject to availability, is by annual permit for which there is a charge of £250 per annum.
