Life at Dunboyne Court

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

In the morning, a local shop can deliver your daily milk or newspaper, and during the day we’ll call you to check that you’re okay. After breakfast in your apartment or the restaurant, you might choose to meet friends in our social lounge or visit our onsite hairdressing salon. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals that you can enjoy with family and friends, or you may wish to prepare lunch yourself in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, Torquay town centre is only a short distance away with its beach, harbour, shops and restaurants. Alternatively, you might feel like taking a trip on the Babbacombe Cliff Railway, which links Babbacombe Downs and Oddicombe Beach.

In the afternoon, you could join us for one of our regular social events, take part in a game of pool, or perhaps enjoy some quiet time in the library area. 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.

It's nice living here, especially as there's always plenty to do and join in with, including the Gardening Club and Pool Club.
