Location & Description
Merrievale Court enjoys a convenient position in one of Malvern's premier areas only a couple of minutes walk from the bustling centre of Barnards Green where there is a fine range of amenities including shops and a bank, the Co-operative supermarket, Post Office and takeaways. Great Malvern railway station is less than a quarter of a mile away and the property is also within walking distance of open common land. The wider facilities of Great Malvern are about a mile distant. Here there are additional shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Junction 1 of the M50 motorway south of Upton upon Severn is about 9 miles away and junction 7 of the M5 at Worcester is a similar distance.

A resident manager ensures the smooth running of The Court and is available to assist with queries or problems and help in the event of illness or emergencies. The apartment has an alarm system which allows two way contact between the residents and the manager. In the manager's absence the alarm is linked by telephone to a local authority centre or control providing cover every day of the year. The building also has a lift, wheelchair access, a shared resident's lounge (with kitchen and toilet facilities), a laundry room (fitted with washing machines and tumble driers) and a guest's suite for overnight visitors.
