Life at Nichols Court

At Nichols 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 in our communal lounge, or take part in one of our regular activities. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals, or you may want to prepare lunch for yourself, or for friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, Linton Zoo and Chilford Hall Vineyard are both nearby. Slightly further afield there’s the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, or you could spend a day in the historic city of Cambridge.

In the afternoon, you might join us in the lounge for one of our regular social events, take part in an exercise class, or perhaps visit the hairdressing salon for a spot of pampering. 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.

There is a wonderful and supportive community at Nichols Court and I am very pleased to be a part of it.
