The comprehensive amenities of St Marychurch are all within a short, level stroll, equally are the scenic Babbacombe Downs with shingle beaches of Oddicombe and Babbacombe below, accessed by either the winding wooded pathways or renowned Cliff Railway.

Owners' insight "I love living at Charlwood Court and find it a very warm and welcoming development with a friendly community spirit. The only reason I am selling is I have chosen to downsize to a smaller flat within Charlwood Court. The communal lounge provides a relaxing space to socialise if people wish, and the house manager, Mandy, is usually on hand. The shopping precinct is only a short walk through the walkway opposite the development, where everything is on hand."
