The specification of our retirement apartments does vary to a degree with each apartment in every development, but this will give you an idea of what you'll find within a new two bedroom McCarthy & Stone apartment.
Set in private south-facing landscaped gardens and close to Singleton Park, Fern Court offers peace and tranquillity just 2 miles outside the city centre. All of our apartments (14 one bedroom and 31 two bedroom apartments) were designed to make your day-to-day living easier. Each has a spacious lounge, ample storage and a waist-height oven and plug sockets to avoid unnecessary bending or lifting. Every apartment has its own balcony and the communal lounge and gardens are great spaces for homeowners to socialise, and with car parking, a cycle store and a scooter room available, you're free to explore the local area and beyond, however you like to travel.
Our retirement apartments offer you the opportunity to own your own home without taking on the burdens of maintaining a large property. All building maintenance is taken care of, and you can feel confident knowing that the House Manager is in control of the development's day-to-day running. Should an emergency arise, the House Manager is on hand during office hours and the 24/7 call system provides round-the-clock support. So, along with the camera entry system and guaranteed accessibility throughout, you can feel completely safe and secure in your new home, giving you time to enjoy the finer things in life.
Situated in Sketty, Swansea, there are plenty of local amenities on the doorstep, including two supermarkets, a bank, several restaurants, a bakery and much more. St Paul's Parish Centre is just up the road, where dance classes, social gatherings and community meetings are regularly held. Singleton Hospital is also less than a mile away.
A stone's throw from the development is the glorious Singleton Park. Home to Swansea Botanical Gardens, a lake with pedaloes, a children's play area and crazy golf, it's a great place to spend some time with the family. And with acres of unadorned green space, it's also the perfect place for a quiet stroll.
If you enjoy being by the sea, you couldn't find a much better spot than Swansea Bay. It stretches from the dunes near Swansea Marina to Mumbles Pier, offering all that a great pier should, from fish and chips and ice cream to an amusements arcade and boating lake. And if it's a beach day you want, you need look no further than Caswell Bay – popular with families and surfers alike, it is wheelchair accessible and boasts spectacular views across the bay.
For similarly magnificent sights, head to Clyne Gardens. Internationally famous for its collections of certain plant species and annual displays, it features fantastic collections of rare species, a bluebell wood and a beautiful wild flower meadow, to name but a few.
Any rugby fans might be interested to know that the Liberty Stadium, home of the Ospreys, is only around 4 miles away, and for those who enjoy a slightly slower paced sport, Swansea Bowls Club is nestled just above Swansea Bay and always welcomes new members.
You may also consider joining the local Swansea group of the University of the Third Age (U3A). This adult learning organisation is for those who have completed their career or finished raising their family. It provides opportunities to learn new skills, pursue interests, form new friendships and have new experiences.
Open Tuesday - Saturday, 10.30am - 5pm
