Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Summerset serviced apartments are ideal for over 70's who are living independently at the moment but would feel more confident with support close at hand. These modern, mobility friendly apartments are warm, comfortable and full of features that make them easy to live in.

With options for both couples and singles, serviced apartments offer a generous double bedroom, spacious separate living area with kitchenette, and an ensuite with accessible shower, grab rails and non-slip floor.

Serviced apartments come with the confidence of extra care and support on hand. Our range of service packages cover help with housekeeping, meals and personal care. And, if you've been assessed as needing rest home level care, there's no need to move. This can be provided in your serviced apartment.

With serviced apartments located in our modern village centre, it's easy to meet friends and family for coffee at our Divine Café and enjoy the facilities including our communal lounge, library, computers, pool table, exercise room, and all-weather bowling green. And, if you're keen to get involved, there are regular activities and events to keep you busy.

Please contact our Sales Manager, Kate Rogoz, on 0275 722 518 for more information.
