What do retirement villages offer? Is retirement village living right for you?

The concept of retirement village living was pioneered in places like Australia and the USA where it has now become an established part of the housing market landscape. 

Although there is still a long way to go here in the UK, retirement villages are becoming more prevalent. 

There are now some exceptional retirement villages in development around the country, making this a viable and attractive option for people enthusiastically planning for their retirement and where best to spend it.

The key aspect to retirement village living that really sets it apart from other alternatives is the unique combination of amenities and services it offers. Choosing to live at a retirement village puts you in complete control of your life right now, as well as for the future, so you can get on with enjoying your well-earned years of retirement knowing you’ve got support as and when you want it.
