Retirement Living Testimonials
Mr Gaymer

Mr Gaymer

"It’s absolutely perfect for me. Being so close I still use the same local shops and doctor’s surgery, so I still see many of my old friends and neighbours. But I also go to coffee mornings and spend time in the Owner’s Lounge where I can meet new people too."

“I was one of the first to move in. I like it here and am settling in nicely. There’s a good crowd here and a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with social activities to join in with if I want to. We usually have a jigsaw on the go in the Owners’ Lounge and there’s often someone around to chat to over a cup of tea.”

Popular town in Kent

Dartford is a popular town situated on the Thames, on the border of Kent and Greater London. Dartford has a long history of industrial and cultural importance and has an extensive range of shops, bars and restaurants within the town centre, together with good transport links to both Bluewater Shopping Centre and Lakeside Shopping Centre.

  • Dartford has a rich and varied heritage which includes The Manor Gate House, which was once a 16th Century mansion of Henry VIII. Medieval buildings in the High Street and the Holy Trinity Church, which dates back to the 1000s and contains a 15th Century mural also add to the heritage of Dartford. Here, the body of Henry V lay overnight for a requiem mass before burial at Westminster Abbey.
  • There's also the Swanscombe Skull Site which is worth a visit. This is the location for three matching fragments of skull that turned out to be among the oldest human remains ever found in Europe.
  • As well as quick links into central London, the town also benefits from designated areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as Dartford Heath. Scenic locations include the 26-acre Central Park, providing glorious floral displays and walks alongside the Darent riverside and the smaller Hesketh Park, with sport facilities.
