Welcome to Fontburn Court, North Shields

Offering housing with care.

At Fontburn Court retirement housing scheme in North Shields, we offer 31 one bedroom purpose-built properties for rent for people over the age of 55 and who have care needs. We are in partnership with AgeUK/Everyday services and staff are based within the building 24 hours a day, to offer support and provide this care.

The property is situated close to North Shields and has excellent transport links to the town centre, Whitley Bay and Wallsend. The local shops are 15 minutes' walking distance and include a post office, a convenience store and a butcher. There is a doctor's surgery less than a quarter of a mile away at Percy Main. Other local amenities include a nearby Metro train station, a community centre and the Royal Quays Retail Outlet.

We understand that sometimes you like to be alone and at other times you may want to be more sociable. Our properties give you that freedom. At Fontburn Court we run social activities including bingo, luncheons, church services, coffee mornings, entertainment and occasional day trips.

You will not need to worry about maintenance and repairs or gardening up-keep as we take care of those. We provide a wide range of facilities, including a communal lounge, a guest room, a garden with seating area, an on-site laundry and 12 parking spaces.
