The development consists of 45 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. You can relax, knowing that there’s a House Manager on hand during office hours as well as the added benefit of having security features. These include a 24 hour emergency call system should you require assistance and a camera door entry system linked to your TV, so you can see who’s calling before letting them in.

There’s no need to worry about being weighed down by maintenance costs either as the service charge covers the cost of external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates, security and energy costs of the laundry, lounge and other communal areas. The Homeowners’ lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night – subject to availability.)

Rockhaven Court is situated in the character mill town of Horwich, the former railway and mill town can boast the home of Bolton Wanderers Football Club, a 2002 commonwealth Games venue, and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), not to mention the renowned Horwich Harriers fell running club and Horwich Prize Medal Morris Men.

The name Rockhaven Court was taken from Rockhaven Castle, once one of the most impressive features of the Horwich landscape, its silhouette dominating the skyline. The property was developed by Richard Brownlow who moved in during 1840 and during the 1880’s he added parapets from which it locally derived its name Rockhaven Castle. Rockhaven Castle was demolished in 1942 possibly because it provided an ideal marker for German bombers trying to target the Loco works in Horwich.

Rockhaven Court is conveniently located on Chorley New Road overlooking Horwich RMI, Bowling and Cricket Club. Local Grocers, butchers, bakers, post office, cafes and restaurants can be found along Winter Hey Lane and Lee Lane. High street restaurant chains can also be found at Middlebrook Retail Park. Sainsbury Local, Aldi and Iceland are also well situated for Rockhaven Court.

Getting around couldn’t be easier, there are bus stops close to the development which provide services throughout the Horwich area, whilst Horwich Parkway train station, located at Middlebrook offers a Park and Ride facility together with providing services into Bolton, Manchester and Preston. For leisure activities, Rockhaven Court is well located for the West Pennine Moors that include Rivington, its historic barns and landmark pike; below which are the gardens created by Lord Leverhulme, founder of Unilever.

Horwich town centre has an abundance of restaurants, together with a leisure centre that offers a range of activities from swimming to badminton. A cinema, indoor bowling and a wider retail offering can also be found at nearby Middlebrook Retail Park." Show less
