Bowes Lyon Court is a brand new Retirement Living PLUS (formerly known as Assisted Living) development made up of 62 one and two bedroom apartments exclusively for the over 70s and is now over 60% sold!
Situated in the heart of Poundbury on Queen Mother Square our Retirement Living PLUS development offers peace of mind that a team of people are on hand to deal with the mundane tasks of property maintenance including gardening and window cleaning. Bowes Lyon Court enables people to retain homeownership whilst at the same time receive flexible care and support in their own home should they need it.
There are many facilities on offer such as an on-site restaurant providing a delicious three-course lunch and a convenient guest suite should friends or family want to visit.
Poundbury is a thriving new urban development designed by the Prince of Wales and built on land owned by The Duchy of Cornwall. Its innovative design embraces the principles of pedestrian friendly public space and community facilities. Often called the extension of Dorset, it is a historically inspired town with a modern twist and prides itself on being a walkable community with shops, commercial buildings and residential areas built within close proximity of each other.
Bowes Lyon Court is located just around the corner from a Waitrose Local and the Farmers' Market. There is also a garden centre with a cafe and restaurant just opposite the development. For those wanting to venture slightly further afield, Dorcester town centre, which boasts plenty of shops and facilities, is under two miles away from the development.
There are many amenities and attractions in the local area including Maiden Castle, Cerne Abbas, Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum and Abbotsbury Swannery. The world renowned Jurassic Coast is only 9 miles away and closer to home, there are plenty of local pedestrianised tree-lined walking routes.
Poundbury is well positioned for road travel with the A35, A37 and A354 providing links to Poole, Lyme Regis, Bere Regis and Yeovil, plus many other destinations. There are also plenty of bus services providing links to Dorchester and beyond. The two railway stations in Dorchester offer access to Weymouth, Bournemouth, Southampton, Winchester, Basingstoke and London Waterloo, with the First Great Western line travelling though Westbury to Bristol and on to Gloucester.
