McCarthy & Stone are proud to present Stover Court. This contemporary development of 47 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments is perfect for over 60s. Stover Court sits on the site of the former Newton Abbot Hospital and is located just 160 metres from the historical and vibrant town centre of Newton Abbot. This development is ideally located adjacent to a Sainsbury’s convenience store, a doctor's surgery and a pharmacy.

The design of Stover Court incorporates the preservation of three of the original buildings including the former hospital lift shaft. Two have been restored and converted into the lounge, guest suite and laundry. In addition, this retirement development has been traditionally designed using a range of natural high quality materials and locally sourced reclaimed stone. Next to the homeowners' lounge is the garden, set within a courtyard. There is also a herb garden and patio area which provides a pleasant setting to enjoy.

Local area

Newton Abbot benefits from excellent amenities and it is home to one of the largest shopping centres in the county. The bustling market town of Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of South Devon at the head of the beautiful Teign Estuary. Regarded as the 'Gateway to Moor and Sea' it is close to Dartmoor National Park and the coastal resorts of Torquay and Teignmouth. The pretty River Lemon meanders through the centre of the town, its origin being a small spring bubbling out of the ground on the wilds of Dartmoor.

Located on East Street, Stover Court is close to the main shopping area which includes a number of supermarkets, major banks and building societies, a library, Post Office and doctor's surgeries; there is also a community hospital.

There is a lot to see and do in Newton Abbot, including a day at the races. Newton Abbot racecourse holds both day and evening races between March and October, with Ladies Day being held in June. The racecourse also holds monthly car boot sales as well as regular antiques fairs. Newton Abbot is home to the Ye Olde Cider Bar and is said to be one of only two remaining cider houses in the UK. Other facilities within Newton Abbot include a cinema, theatre and a leisure centre.
