Life at Ness Court

At Ness Court, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, a local shop can deliver your daily milk or newspaper. After breakfast in your apartment, you might choose to meet friends or take part in one of our regular activities. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals, with a good variety of dishes to choose from.

If you fancy a change of scenery, you could pop into the village of Burwell for a spot of shopping or lunch. You might want to visit the Burwell Museum and Windmill, or travel further afield to the town of Newmarket, or the city of Cambridge.

In the afternoon, you could join us for one of our regular social events, such as bingo, Knit and Natter, and coffee mornings. Alternatively, you may prefer to take part in an arts and crafts workshop, or do some gardening. By evening, you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat, a game of cards or a mutual hobby.

I have lived at Ness Court for six months and I'm delighted with my choice. Being here feels like being part of a family.
