The bungalows on Halfpenny Lane, Featherstone are a purpose built development of 36 one bedroom homes.

Each bungalow is self-contained with a modern fitted kitchen and bathroom suite and well appointed bedrooms and living rooms. The properties benefit from either coal or gas fired central heating.

There are open plan gardens around some of the bungalows.

A book club calls at Halfpenny Lane Community Centre every two weeks, and twice a month a nurse from the St Thomas Road Surgery visits to collect prescriptions.

Conveniently located close to Featherstone town centre, Halfpenny Lane Bungalows is just a short bus ride – from supermarkets, local shops, pubs, clubs, churches, hairdressers, a fish and chip shop, chemists, butcher and a variety of sandwich shops.

WDH's Care Link emergency contact system is wired into each home ensuring access to assistance 24 hours a day.

All bungalows are fitted with a fire alarm which is tested regularly.

Local amenities

There is a newsagent within walking distance of the bungalows and more shops are just a short bus ride from the bus stop on Green Lane.
