Axminster is a county town on the Eastern fringes of Devon, close to the borders with Dorset and Somerset, an area of outstanding beauty. It is an attractive town and takes its name from the River Axe and the old Abbey Church or Minster. In 1775, Thomas Whitty made the first Axminster carpet in the town.
Both Exeter and Taunton are within easy reach, being less than 30 miles away and easily accessible via main roads providing direct links to junctions of the M25 and Exeter Airport. Axminster has a main line train station which provides direct access to London (Waterloo) with trains taking approximately two and a half hours. Trains to Exeter take less than half an hour.
Minster Court has been designed with safety and security at the forefront. The apartment has an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. A Careline integrated intruder alarm and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.
Minster Court’s manager, Gill is on hand throughout the day to support the owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Gill arranges many regular events in the Owners’ Lounge from coffee mornings to games afternoons.
For any visiting guests, the furnished twin Guest Suite is perfect and available for just £15 per night for 1 visitor and £20 (£10 each) for 2 visitors. The same excellent value is available across more than 150 Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
