Our Apartments

Each apartment is entirely self contained with its own front door, many are at ground level and those on the first floor can be easily accessed by electric stair lifts. Ground floor apartments open onto a small private patio and the communal gardens. The apartments are all-electric, with off peak storage heating. They each have a well fitted kitchen and comfortable living room. Three apartments have a double bedroom only, and the remainder offer a double and large single. There is a smoke detector, two telephone points and ample electric sockets. There is also an ‘Emergency pull cord’ in every room. The latter ensures an immediate response from the resident manager or the 24 hour emergency call centre.

Communal facilities include a large well furnished lounge and kitchen, a modern laundry room and an exterior drying area. A guest suite is available for visitors at a small charge. There is a power point for the re-charging of electric buggies/scooters. There is a convivial atmosphere at The Croft with a weekly coffee morning for those who wish to attend and residents also arrange other events at frequent intervals. There is a ‘no pets’ policy on this site. Other restrictions and easements may apply in accordance with current legislation and Association policy.

The rent charged by the Association for ground floor apartments is slightly higher than for those apartments on the first floor but all are offered at an economical rate, well below a commercial level. The inclusive rent covers all communal services and the external maintenance i.e. the upkeep of the garden, use of laundry, cleaning of the communal areas and exterior windows and the cost of exterior lighting. Water charges and television licences are also covered. Tenants are responsible for their own telephone & electric usage and’ the local council tax.
