Balshaw Court consists of 62 stylish one and two-bedroom retirement homes, exclusive to the over 70s and conveniently located close to Leyland town centre. These stunning retirement apartments are available for sale or rent and incorporate intelligent design, giving you gorgeous, yet practical living spaces.

As a fairly large development of 30 one-bed and 32 two-bed apartments, you’ll find yourself in a bustling community of like-minded individuals. In addition to the communal lounge and landscaped garden, where you’ll be able to socialise with your fellow homeowners, the development’s Estate Manager will organise regular social events, from book clubs to film nights, where you can catch up with friends and meet new people.

Each and every apartment will be designed to the highest specification, with some even having balconies, while features will be incorporated to ensure your day-to-day life is as easy as possible, such as raised sockets and ovens to minimise bending and non-slip bathroom flooring. And, for the days when you don’t feel like cooking or shopping, the development will feature an onsite bistro for your convenience (serving excellent value, hearty food).

The care provisions at all of our Retirement Living PLUS developments are totally flexible. Your care package will be tailored to you and you’ll pay only for the support you need and use. A 24-hour emergency call system and a camera entry security system will be installed to ensure you feel safe and secure in your new home. Plus, we guarantee accessibility throughout, with lifts to all floors.

You will find a bus stop within a two minute walk from Balshaw Court, there will be onsite car parking and a scooter room, so you won’t have any trouble getting around. What’s more, less than a mile away is Leyland town centre, where you’ll find three supermarkets, a leisure centre, a library, a medical centre and a whole host of shops and eateries.



Local Area

As well as a thriving town centre, Leyland is home to Worden Park, a large park of mature woodlands and open meadows. The park is just half a mile from the development site and features many well-marked paths for quiet strolls, a beautiful Georgian walled garden and a delightful little caf£. Plus, if you have family coming to visit, there's a large children's play area, crazy golf and even a hedge maze.

For both seasoned and new golfers alike, Leyland Golf Club is also under a mile away. As well as the 18-hole parkland course, a large practice area is available, with a practice bunker, chipping facilities and a 9-hole putting green. The club is happy to accept new members and also welcomes visitors.

Also in Leyland is the British Commercial Vehicle Museum. From horse-drawn vehicles of the 1880s and the first steam-driven wagons to modern lorry cabs, the museum has over 60 historic vehicles on display. A meander through this small museum may take longer than you might expect, with so much to explore. Climb aboard a vintage fire engine, discover how developments in motor vehicles have made the roads safer today and even see the Pope-mobile, specially built for Pope John Paul's visit in 1982.

In the nearby town of Chorley is Astley Hall. Dating back as far as the 1570s, with major additions in the 1600s and 1820s, the hall is a Grade I listed building with a fascinating history, with William Shakespeare and Oliver Cromwell both having stayed here. It houses a museum and art gallery brimming with items of local historical interest. Visit the hall to discover more of its history, full of plots and religious turmoil. Marvel at the hall's stunning architectural features and admire the beautiful artwork and furniture on display, most of which were collected by the families who lived here.
