Location & Description
Clarence Park Village enjoys a convenient position on the outskirts of Malvern and within walking distance of Malvern Link, where there is a comprehensive range of amenities, including shops, a bank, Lidl and Co-op supermarkets, Post Office, pharmacies, places to eat out and takeaways. Less than quarter of a mile distant is Malvern's main retail park where there are a number of familiar names including a large Morrisons superstore, Marks & Spencer, Argos, Next, Boots, Cafe Nero and several others. The historic and cultural Spa town of Great Malvern is only a mile away. Here there is an even wider choice of facilities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Clarence Park benefits from a well-being nurse visiting three times a week and regular care services (available upon request for an extra cost). Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station less than a mile away in Malvern Link. The M5 motorway (junction 7) at Worcester is about 7miles away. There is a bus stop right outside Clarence Park with regular services to Great Malvern and Worcester (15 minutes away). Clarence Park Village is a highly regarded complex of homes for the over 55s which was originally conceived, designed and completed approximately eight years ago. It is run by the Platform Housing Group and has a deserved reputation for the way it's run and for its facilities, which include an IT suite, library, restaurant, bar, lounge, coffee shop, craftroom, a health and beauty salon, games room, conservatory and even a village hall function room. There is something for everyone and a real community spirit. Just along the corridor from the apartment is a guest suite which can be booked, along with a bathroom with step-into bath for the use of residents. There is also a weekly laundry service, with clothes collected and returned to individual flats, at extra cost. The restaurant offers meals at certain times throughout the day. Lunch can be pre-booked, and/or delivered to individual flats at extra cost if required.
