Manager's description

“For most of our Extra Care Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, South Tyneside Council, who can be contacted on 0191 427 7000.

A warm welcome awaits you at Bramble Court, South Shields. This development of 46 spacious, two bedroom Extra Care apartments benefits from a wide range of on-site facilities including beautiful landscaped gardens, residents’ lounge, hair salon and guest room. Located near to the coastal road overlooking Frenchman’s Bay, the properties are very convenient for local shops, bus routes and amenities.

You’ll have no concerns about upkeep of the buildings and grounds, as a professional on-site manager takes care of those aspects, as well as helping you seek further support if required. Plus the regular coffee mornings, crafts and exercise sessions, entertainment evenings and occasional trips out make this a very friendly community”
