Moorhills in Wimborne is a small development of 17 one bed apartments with a shared garden, laundry and guest room. There is a strong sense of community making this a very happy and inclusive setting. The large market is on the doorstep and is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and nearby is a convenience store.
It is a short level walk to the town centre with GP Surgery, Post Office, butcher and fishmonger. Alternatively you can catch a bus to town with the stop just outside the development. A professional manager looks after the buildings and grounds maintenance and repairs, as well as helping you to access further help and support if you need it.
