Property description

    About Casterbridge Court

    Having first been settled in prehistoric times, Dorchester has a fascinating history, with some of the country’s best preserved Roman ruins. At our upcoming Dorchester Retirement Living development, Casterbridge Court, you can own your own apartment just minutes from this bustling market town centre.

    Casterbridge Court will have 44 apartments, with both one- and two-beds available. Beautiful design will combine seamlessly with practicality to make your life easier, from ample storage to raised sockets and appliances. Some apartments will even have their own balconies where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of your own space. And for socialising with your fellow homeowners, there’ll be a cosy communal lounge as well as wonderfully landscaped gardens.

    Safety, security and accessibility are of utmost importance to us. If you have an issue, the House Manager will be available during office hours and there’ll be a 24/7 call system for emergencies. A camera entry system will ensure security throughout the development, and lifts to all floors means the development will be fully accessibly to all.

    A wealth of amenities sit on the doorstep of Casterbridge Court. Within a 15-minute walk you can reach the local supermarket, medical centre, pharmacy, fitness centre and library, as well as various banks, shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The town is also served by a great bus service, as well as two train stations.

    Local Area

    Home to the birthplace of the Victorian novelist and poet Thomas Hardy - a beautiful and secluded cottage where you can discover more about the Hardy's beginnings - Dorchester has much to tell of the life and work of this literary master. Follow the Thomas Hardy Trail to find out more about his education, see delightful collections of Hardy memorabilia and admire some of the many Dorchester buildings associated with his novels and characters.

    Dorchester's many museums lead you from the prehistoric era to modern day. The Terracotta Warriors Museum, the Dinosaur Museum, The Roman Town House and The Keep Military Museum are just some of the many fascinating museums and sites the town has to offer.

    If you like a good mystery, Maumbury Rings is a must see. Having stood for nearly five thousand years, the original function of this monument is still unknown, although several theories do exist. Come and discover the henge for yourself and put your own theory to the test. And, in summer, enjoy one of the many free music events hosted there, including the Dorchester Arts Festival, battle re-enactments and even open air performances of Shakespeare.

    For a spot of shopping or to catch up with friends, head to Brewery Square. The historic Dorchester Brewery site has been converted into a cosmopolitan hub of eateries, leisure facilities and independent businesses. Enjoy great food, fabulous shopping and spectacular events in this cultural and retail hotspot.
