Martha Wallis Court and Carey Mission House, Riverside’s Retirement Living apartments, are situated in the heart of Kettering town centre.

A good bus service runs from the Newlands Centre for those wishing to go further afield.                                                       

The apartments offer a warm and friendly atmosphere thanks to a refurbishment of the lounge and reception area. Carey Mission House is a Grade II listed building, built in the 1750s and part of English Heritage. Martha Wallis Court was built in the back garden of Carey Mission House in 1987. Together they offer 32 one-bedroom, two two-bed and four studio apartments, for one or two people, over 55.
