Owners’ Lounge

Many of our developments have beautifully furnished Owners’ Lounges that are designed with our customers in mind. They have wifi and many of them feature coffee bars, so they’re ideal for socialising with new neighbours. You can also just relax in the corner with a good book if you prefer. The Owners’ Lounge can be booked out for an event, which is ideal for birthdays , while we run a number of events in the Owners’ Lounge throughout the year.

Lodge Manager

Every single one of our developments has a Lodge Manager on-site who is on hand to help with all manner of different things. They look after the maintenance of the development and oversee any work being carried out, but they are a friendly point of contact when you want someone to talk to, as well as arranging events in the development throughout the year. They’re also available if you want to lock up and leave your apartment for a holiday, and will ensure everything is secure when you’re away.

Guest Suite

All of our developments have a Guest Suite provided for visiting relatives or friends. Reservations are arranged via the Lodge Manager and can be booked in advance. The Guest Suite is ideal if you want to have your loved ones close by during their visit.

Landscape Grounds

Each development is individually designed to blend comfortably with neighbouring properties. A great deal of importance is placed on the communal grounds, providing a welcome retreat for you, your family and friends. Some developments have beautiful gardens, others have landscaped grounds and some even feature a roof terrace – ideal for enjoying your morning coffee in the summer months.

Car Parking

Our retirement developments all have on-site parking available and are for our Owners. We take extra care to ensure our developments are close to town centres and with good public transport links, so many of our Owners choose to give up their cars, preferring not to have the burden of maintenance and running costs.

Retirement Living Testimonials

"Just across the road we have a handy bus service and various shopping centres, other places of interest such as services museums and an outdoor outlet park which is a hive of activity.  As for me this is one long holiday, lovely walks, a long sea front, some places quiet and peaceful and others full of activity."

Mr & Mrs Mercer

Mr & Mrs Mercer

“Having moved from an older property that required ongoing maintenance which inevitably took a lot of time and effort we found this was encroaching more and more on our retirement, when we wanted to spend our time with the grandchildren, not maintaining an old house! Having moved into our apartment we now have no maintenance worries. This means we’re now able to spend time with our grandsons, who often come and see us at Petlands Lodge. We haven’t had a moment's regret in our new apartment”
