"Queen Elizabeth Court is a development of 36 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, ideal for those looking for retirement accommodation in the North of the country.

Occupying a prestigious corner position, the development’s use of locally sourced materials and modern design blends seamlessly with adjacent commercial and residential buildings. Contemporary living extends to the apartments themselves with open plan living, under floor heating, level access shower rooms and walk in wardrobes as standard.

Queen Elizabeth Court offers much more than a stunning location; your contemporary designed patio and balcony doors, together with internal sliding partition wall, will open to give you the option of creating a unique living space where you will be able to relax and enjoy the surrounding landscaped gardens and local scenery.

The apartments offer a central atrium and walk-in wardrobes while retractable walls enable you to make the most of the living space and an accessible balcony brings the outdoors inside.

Allocated parking and landscaped gardens are additional features of this development, which would suit those interested in retirement accommodation in Kendal, Windermere and surrounding areas such as Carnforth, Morecambe, Lancaster, Keswick, Ingleton, Penrith, Carlisle and both the Lake District National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park."
