Balshaw Court - Designed exclusively with the over 70's in mind, this Retirement Living PLUS development allows you to carry on living independently in a home you own, with the help of on-site flexible care and support if you need it, plus the benefit of a Bistro style restaurant serving delicious meals from 10am to 6pm every day.

You can relax in the knowledge that with Retirement Living PLUS, the on-site team are on hand to provide assistance and flexible care and support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The apartments are wheelchair friendly and you'll find ovens and plug sockets set at waist height. There are easy to use lever taps and grab rails along the hallways, making getting around easier.

You'll also find a secure charging and storage area for mobility scooters. Peace of mind also comes from a door entry system linked to your TV, so you can see who's there before letting anyone in, and an intruder alarm, allowing you to relax in the knowledge that you're safe and secure. The spacious Homeowners lounge is ideal for leading a full and active social life with both fellow homeowners and friends and family.

If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability) which has an en-suite shower room, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see: https://checker.ofcom.org.uk/en-gb/about-checker#Answer_0_2

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength: obtained from Ofcom on January 27, 2024

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services

    Energy Performance data and Internal floor area: obtained on July 13, 2021 from The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 or the Home Report if in relation to a residential property in Scotland.
