Property Description: DESCRIPTION
The Bishops Court Scheme is designed for people over 55 years of age to live independently, but with additional care facilities on site for those needing support and assistance if times become more challenging. Care staff are available from 7.00a.m. until 10.00p.m. There are 24 apartments in total. Bishops Court has been carefully designed so that every apartment is very easy to live in and access. There are non-slip walkways throughout the complex serving all floors. A modern laundrette avoids a need for washing machines and tumble driers within each apartment. A communal lounge caters for social gatherings by both Bishops Court residents and local community events, with a regular doctor's surgery held within the building. A guest suite is provided for anyone expecting visitors who also may have limited space within their apartment. Limited parking is available, the gardens are landscaped to provide sitting areas for those wanting to enjoy the wonderful water views on finer days. The village shops and facilities are just outside the entrance to Bishops Court. SITUATION
The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the estuary of the River Yealm. This sheltered, deep water mooring is much favoured by yachtsmen and a truly beautiful valley within the unspoilt South Hams countryside, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The villages share a number of facilities including a post office, pharmacy, traditional butchers, Co-operative stores, three good public houses, two churches, yacht club with bistro and good Primary School. Bus services run to Plymouth city centre which is within easy commuting distance. The main route from Plymouth to Exeter (A38/M5 Devon Expressway) is only a few miles away. Intercity trains run daily from Plymouth to Paddington. The Continental Ferryport are also easily accessible. All combine to give superb access to the rest of the country, combined with living in one of the most beautiful riverside locations on the south coast.
Plymouth itself is a historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern University, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in and around Plymouth Sound. ACCOMMODATION
