Discover Retirement Living with a big PLUS

In these delightfully hassle-free and high-spec Retirement Living PLUS apartments, we’ll help you take care of the little things – as well as the bigger chores - so you can focus on doing what you love. You’d find all the benefits of a Retirement Living development but with thoughtful extra services that are there for you now, and in the future. This includes a friendly Manager onsite at all times and a chef run bistro, for when you don’t feel like cooking – or just fancy a barista-style coffee with a friend. An hour’s domestic support every week is included – more if you want it, plus the option of tailored personal care on tap should you need it. Pets are welcome too! 

Low maintenance and sociable

This Retirement Living PLUS development in Baldock is designed to encourage community feeling to flourish, while also allowing you to enjoy the complete privacy of your own spacious retirement apartment. You’ll find stylish communal spaces, including two luxurious lounges with free Wi-Fi, and a large, landscaped garden with courtyard areas - ideal for meeting your friends, neighbours and family for a drink and a chat. There will also be a hotel-style guest suite as a convenient alternative when people come to stay. The communal facilities will become social hubs – a hive of informal gatherings and regular clubs, events and meet-ups to suit all sorts of interests. You’ll find things like film nights, pie and mash lunches, knitting clubs, cocktail evenings, music, yoga, birthday parties and even the odd fiesta.

Safe and secure
