WHAT THE OWNERS SAY:

"We had been looking for a Retirement Home for some time and, being somewhat disillusioned about what was on offer, we very nearly didn’t come to see this flat thinking it might not suit! But we went to see it anyway. It blew us away and we bought it on the spot!

The flat is beautiful, well equipped, light and airy with lovely views over the well maintained, colourful garden. We have never ever regretted it, exceeding our already high expectations!

Edgcumbe Court has an unrivalled position being in the Stonehouse Peninsula Conservation Area, adjacent to stunning Plymouth Sound, Historic Royal William Yard and, wonder of wonders, ample parking for ourselves and visitors! Edgcumbe Court, being completed only five years ago, is where we enjoy being part of a safe, gated community, superb staff on site 24 hours a day, with first class facilities. The South West Coast Path is just outside the rear gate. Shops, restaurants, buses and local ferries all within a few minutes easy walking.

The welcome we received from the staff and other residents made us feel immediately at home and part of the community. Too many other amenities to list here, so please don’t be afraid to ask for more details, you will not be disappointed.

Why are we moving? We are not! Following our own slight change in circumstances we are staying on in another part of the Edgcumbe Court."
