Type of property
At Vicarage Court apartments, people come together as a community. Living in this shared building means people benefit from a vibrant network of staff and friends, as well as the independence of having an apartment to make their own.
The building has seven two-bedroom apartments. Each apartment has a main bedroom, spare bedroom, kitchen, living room, and a bathroom with bath and shower. Vicarage Court also has a garden with a BBQ for people to use when the weather is good.
Valued in your community
At Vicarage Court, we are located in a residential area with peaceful surroundings. The local area has cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as a post office and a library.

Blackburn is easily accessible from the property and offers the Empire Theatre, museums and art galleries, a Vue cinema, Planet Ice for skating, the Mall Shopping Centre and Market, Tenpin Blackburn for bowling, and many historical landmarks.
Nearby Preston also provides access to a range of vibrant cafes, restaurants, shops and attractions including St George’s and Fishergate shopping centres, and an Odeon cinema. There are a number of museums in the area too - Ribble Steam Railway and Museum is a popular choice.
Preston is also home to the Creative Space Centre - the UK’s largest multi-sensory centre for people with special needs.
