Each flat has its own front door and entrance hall, a spacious bedroom suitable for either a single or a double bed, a tastefully decorated lounge, a fully fitted kitchen, and a large bathroom with either a bath or a wet room style shower. Apartments are let unfurnished, leaving residents free to furnish their home as they choose.
A number of the ground floor flats have direct access to the scheme’s attractive enclosed garden, which is suitable for wheelchair users, and many of the first floor flats boast views over the garden and river.
We offer a broad range of facilities to choose from including:
All apartments are fitted with emergency pull cord alarms, and all tenants are given pendant alarms, which when activated immediately alerts the 24-hour support team that you need assistance.
Residents have many opportunities to socialise and join in with a range of activities - from barbecues and pub lunches, to walks along the nearby river, or simply enjoy some quiet time in their own space.
