Retirement homes in East Midlands

With busy cities, picturesque coastlines and a network of charming market towns and villages, the East Midlands is an ideal place to start a new adventure with a high-quality retirement home.

Retire to a region that's packed with natural beauty and wildlife

From national parks and nature reserves to stately gardens and towering hills, there's plenty of unspoilt countryside and open spaces around the East Midlands.

You'll find more than 500 square miles of hills, valleys, rivers and moorland at the Peak District National Park, ancient woodland and prehistoric rocky outcrops at Bradgate Park in Leicester, or expansive views from the hilltop park at the Heights of Abraham.

You can see penguins and crocodiles at the Natureland Seal Sanctuary, spot birds, butterflies and dragonflies at the nature reserve at Stanwick Lakes, or see over 250 different species of birds at the Attenborough Nature Centre in Nottinghamshire.

Discover a rich heritage in a historical part of England

Whether you're looking for ancient ruins or top-notch museums, the East Midlands is full of intriguing historical sites and monuments.

You can see the remains of the partially-demolished Rufford Abbey in Nottinghamshire, walk around the massive Norman walls of Lincoln Castle, or see historic military re-enactments of the Battle of Bosworth at the Heritage Centre in Leicester.

There are exhibitions around prison life and executions at the Galleries of Justice in Nottingham, the largest collection of historical footwear in the world at the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery and social, domestic and commercial cultural history at the Museum of Lincolnshire Life.

Testimonial image

I loved my previous property but the time had come where I knew I needed to downsize. I knew I wanted to remain in the area close to my family and friends so I was on the lookout for fresh, new build properties in a central location when Justice Court caught my eye. There's never a dull moment at Justice Court and I would recommend the move to anyone, it's independent living at its absolute finest.
