Branksome Hall Drive is in the heart of the Branksome/Cockerton area of the town. We offer unfurnished, self-contained one bedroom apartments and bungalows. There are also two bungalows which consist of two bedrooms.

All apartments have fitted kitchens and large wet rooms. Apartments include gated parking and there is one lift in the main building. Most properties overlook the surrounding garden areas.

There are large communal areas, open garden spaces and seating areas for everyone. We encourage tenants to join in different activities if they would like to. There is a poly tunnel for people who enjoy gardening. There is also a communal kitchen for cooking activities and a games room for pool and darts.

Our schemes are attractive and welcoming. They are also great value due to our reasonable rent and reduced heating costs. 

Selby Crescent is a short walk from Branksome Hall Drive. You can find out more information on our Selby Crescent link.
