Your own home

Downsizing is a big decision. With Audley you stay firmly in control, with complete freedom and independence to live the life you choose. You buy and own your own retirement home, in a beautiful and secure environment, and because it is your house, you don’t have to give up the things you love, including your pets. Plus, you have the added luxury of having your gardens and property maintained for you.

Each house, cottage or apartment in one of our retirement villages is sold with a lease of up to 125 years. It is your home, held as your own asset – and, of course, you are free to sell at any stage, on the open market. So you are able to enjoy the benefits of a continued investment in a property of your own.

Your own lifestyle

At the heart of each retirement village is a centrepiece building containing the Audley Club, housing the facilities you’d normally expect to find in a country house hotel. You can dine out in the restaurant, relax with a book in the library or enjoy a dip in the swimming pool. There’s also a bar/bistro, beauty treatment rooms and a fitness room. And in some of our villages you’ll be able to take advantage of the tennis courts or croquet lawn. 

These centrepiece buildings often comprise Tudor Halls, Georgian Mansions and Victorian Villas. We have become renowned for the sensitive development of important but neglected buildings and, as a result, have won a number of Conservation Awards. 

Your own choices

Should you need a little extra support or a helping hand, we'll be more than happy to provide that for you as well. Our trusted Audley Care staff are here to help with as little or as much as you need.

We can pop in to do an hour of cleaning a day, or help with your personal care needs. If we can help with the ironing or collect your shopping, you only have to ask. However much, or little, you want doing is your choice – and you only pay for what you use.

Everything Audley is has evolved from listening to the wishes, needs and concerns of those who've lived in our retirement villages over the last ten years. So what you get is a community in harmony, where you are totally free to join in the activities and facilities on your doorstep, or just enjoy your home and your independence.
