Every apartment features a fully fitted and easily accessible kitchen, and a walk-in shower with slip-resistant tiling. Security and comfort is ensured for every homeowner, with intruder alarms, a camera entry system and an Estates Manager to ensure that every resident feels safe at all times within the complex. There is also wheelchair access and lifts to all floors for those with limited mobility, and staff are on hand 24 hours a day to offer assistance to residents should they ever require it.

The Clockhouse residents are just an eight minute bus ride from the centre of Guildford, where there is a great variety of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops, as well as local amenities like a Post Office, pharmacy and bank. The development is just moments away from the award-winning Stoke Park.
