This retirement apartment for the over 60's is located in the sought after purpose built retirement complex of Orchard Court in Stonehouse.

The nearby town of Stroud provides all the major facilities associated with a regional centre including railway station with regular services to London/Paddington. Access to the M5 motorway is made easily via Junction 13 which is a short drive away.
If travelling through Stonehouse in a northerly direction, follow the Bath Road into the High Street, passing the town council building on your left hand side. Continue to the Co-op and take the immediate left hand turning onto Laburnum Walk and take the next turning on the right hand side onto Orchard Court and the allocated parking space is on the left after the first block on your left. The visitor bays and Flat 12 is directly in front.
The main feature of this retirement complex is its proximity to the high street which is just a short, level walk away, yet remaining in a tucked away position with bordering communal gardens and greenery to the side and rear. Before getting to the high street is also a good size co-op shop. The property is accessed via communal entrance hallway with stairs to the first floor.
