The wider amenities of Great Malvern are less than a mile away. Here there are further shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Transport communications are excellent.

The apartments are laid out for the enjoyment of an independent lifestyle within a safe and secure environment. Each flat has its own self contained accommodation and front door so residents can maintain privacy.
