  • School Gardens is all about doing what you enjoy

    The Activity Studio is a creative space where you can get together with friends and neighbours and enjoy shared hobbies and interests like bridge, arts and crafts, dance classes or Tai Chi. Residents themselves choose the activity programme.

    There’s a Fitness Gym - just the place to help you stay fit, with its own personal trainer who will be available to support you. There’s also a professional Hair and Beauty salon - the perfect excuse to treat yourself whenever you feel like it.

    You can enjoy good food, a relaxed atmosphere, and friends when relaxing with a cup of tea or coffee and a snack in our café bistro, or meet up with friends in the lounge.

    Around the clock support, if and when you need it

    Whatever you feel like doing, you can relax knowing that full-time, around the clock support and care is available on site and can be delivered in the comfort of your own home if and when you might need it. And if you or your partner need extra support, now or in the future, whether that be help with housework or personal care, we can provide that too.

  • A great location, with so much to see and do

    Occupying a beautiful setting in the heart of the Severn Valley, the historic Georgian town of Stourport-on-Severn has a wealth of architectural heritage and a unique charm provided by the rivers Severn and Stour, and the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, all of which make their leisurely way through the town. 

    Within this setting, School Gardens retirement development is located in a quiet suburb just 50 yards or so from a co-op, and within easy walking distance of the bustling town centre with its wide range of shops and all the essential everyday facilities you’re likely to need.

    A wealth of shops and amenities on your doorstep

    Stourport has a local butcher, a Post Office, a supermarket, pharmacy, banks and solicitors, a laundrette, local arts and crafts and an outdoor store. There are plenty of pubs too, some with live music, as well as a good choice of English and ethnic restaurants and cafes, plus takeaways including Chinese, Indian, pizza, and fish and chips. 

    You’re also a short stroll from Stourport’s award-winning canal basins, its excellent selection of places to eat and drink, and a host of waterside leisure opportunities to enjoy. 

    What could be more pleasant on warm Summer evenings than sitting under swaying willows beside a tranquil canal or the gently flowing Severn or Stour? Watching a family of swans sail by. Admiring the brightly coloured narrowboats, the rustic black and white locks. Stopping off at a welcoming riverside pub, a cafe or restaurant.

    The town’s riverside meadows also offer the opportunity to take riverboat trips, besides hosting a popular annual rowing regatta, a wacky raft race and the annual Stourport Carnival, when boats decorated with lights present a dazzling display.  

    Golfers will find a number of good courses in the area, together with an enthusiastic bowling club. And if you decide to broaden your horizons a little more and you’ll find picturesque countryside stretching off in every direction, so walking shoes or a bike are both great ways to put some colour in your cheeks.

    Try Hartlebury Common and Moorhall Marsh nature reserves, The Wyre Forest’s lovely ancient woodland, West Midland Safari Park, Bodenham Arboretum and Earth Centre.

    If you enjoy visiting local manor houses and country estates, a notable example is Witley Court, one of Britain’s great country houses until a devastating fire in 1937 left it a spectacular ruin - with beautifully restored gardens. Another is Astley Hall, a diminutive country house set in parkland and once the home of Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin.

    The city of Worcester, the beautiful spa town of Malvern with its famous hills, historical Droitwich Spa, Upton-on-Severn, Pershore, Evesham and other Worcestershire towns, are all within easy reach and well worth a visit.
