The court is situated in a quiet area of Ross on Wye. The town centre is only one mile away, with a regular bus service, and the court also benefits from being within easy reach of two doctors surgeries and a hospital. The scheme has a pleasant communal lounge, laundry room and guest room. There is a 24 hour emergency call system and door entry system for your security.

Our Court Manager Service is an important and integral part of Housing & Care 21’s approach to supporting our residents. It is designed to offer support and security to the court and those residents on court who need it. The service is about promoting and encouraging individuals to maintain their independence in their own home.

Our Managers are also responsible for the day to day running of the court including looking after the Health & Safety, property management and resident engagement." Show less

"Location secluded and very quiet beautifully kept gardens with tall trees giving shelter from strong winds. Easy access to Ross-on-Wye town centre. Good bus service with bus stop just opposite gate, also to Monmouth. Only problem, very limited parking. This needs to be reviewed." Show less

"A wonderfully happy, sociable and safe community where the residents look out for each other. They have many social events organised by the residents themselves which bring them and the wider community together. They have been very proactive in raising funds for new kitchen facilities in their communal area." Show less
