Sitting just twelve miles south east of Bath, the historic town of Trowbridge can trace its origins back to the 10th century. The town centre reflects a classic old English charm and features a surprising number of distinctive Bath stone listed buildings.
Applegate House is well positioned for local amenities with a convenience store just metres away and a large Sainsbury's within walking distance. A public bus service stops directly outside the property with a regular service to the town centre as well as neighbouring towns and villages in the surrounding areas.
The town centre itself is compact, making it easy to navigate and enjoy on foot. The historic Fore Street is located less than half a mile from the development and is the central shopping street for the town and a great place to browse and enjoy some retail therapy. Many Listed Buildings and Mills form the backdrop to the town centre. For a larger selection of high street stores the Shires and Castle Place shopping centres can also within easy reach.
Culture lovers will enjoy a visit to the Trowbridge Museum and Art Gallery, which offers a detailed insight into the local history and particularly English woollen and cloth industries. For others there is the Multi Screen Cinema and Civic Centre.
Health services are in rich supply in the area with several GP practices. The Trowbridge Community Hospital is situated immediately adjacent to the McCarthy & Stone development. There is a good road network and excellent public transport links from Trowbridge with frequent rail services offer links to London, Bristol and Wales. There is also a public bus service directly to the front of the property, with regular services to the town centre, as well as neighbouring towns and villages.
