Very caring scheme, just like one big family, everyone looks out for each other.
The area is lovely as we have the best of both worlds, semi-country and semi-town. Most flats have a lovely view over the fields.
The scheme is all on one level with no stairs, making it an excellent place of residence for elderly people.
