Manager's description

“Plymouth Court is located at Headless Cross, an established residential area close to the town of Redditch. (Much of the area around Redditch was owned in the last century by the Earl of Plymouth, hence the name). It is the only one of our Courts which consists entirely of bungalows, set in extensive landscaped grounds. The Court was built in two phases, opening with thirty-nine bungalows in 1985, with a further thirteen being added in 1988.
There are a few local shops within five minutes walk, including a general grocery, newsagent, butcher and Post Office. There is a good bus service to Redditch town Centre, less than a mile away, where there is an extensive range of shopping facilities including a large new covered shopping mall with mobility services for disabled people”

  • This site is unique in the fact that you have your own bungalow, so you can come & go as you like, join in any entertainment you wish, or not. the staff are excellent, they will help in any way they can. If in emergency they deal with all that's necessary. We cannot praise this place enough. Made by a resident in 2017

  • My wife and I moved here almost 2 years ago. The style of living suits us perfectly; the staff are excellent in the service and care they provide; and the maintenance charge represents good value. Friends are very envious. Made by a resident in 2017

  • Own my own bungalow. Can be independent or choose to join social activities; take lunch; use laundry. Personal care available if required in later years. Service charge includes cleaning of bungalow, including windows, external maintenance (building and grounds); building insurance. Made by a resident in 2017

  • Complete independence is a safe & pleasant environment, but with the knowledge that help is at hand if needed. Friendly staff and very good social and dining facilities. Made by a resident in 2017
