Somerleigh Court

Somerleigh Court retirement village comprises 68 spacious 1 and 2 bedroom retirement apartments, located across 3 buildings.

Somerleigh Court was purpose-built exclusively for people over 65. The apartments are considerately designed providing spacious rooms and wide door frames enabling ease of mobility. All apartment buildings have lift access.

Residents live privately and independently in their own home, with the comfort of knowing that there is a 24-hour emergency response system from an on-site team of friendly and caring staff who also visit each resident daily to check that all is well. For added peace of mind, there is a nursing home on site.

With communal facilities available - dining room, lounge and library - and a regular variety of social events, residents can be as involved in village activities as they choose.

Situated in the centre of Dorchester, Somerleigh Court is conveniently close to all the town's shops, cafés, and restaurants, the Borough Gardens, mainline rail and bus services. Healthcare services including GP surgeries and the County Hospital are also nearby.
