Dovedale Almshouses

Dovedale Cottages sheltered housing consists of 21 one-bedroom flats: seven on the ground floor; eight on the 1st floor; and six on two storeys.


Dovedale Cottages was established in 1841 and renovated in 1995/97.  A new block was built in 1979/81. Communal facilities include a laundry and conservatory.


The two original end cottages are Grade II listed buildings. The later block linking the two cottages is not listed.


The scheme is located in a residential area. There are gardens to all sides of the building, with limited controlled parking in all surrounding roads.


Every flat is self-contained with its own modern kitchen and bathroom and offers a 24 hour alarm and monitoring service.
