There is a choice of one and two bedroom apartments and they may all vary slightly when it comes to dimensions and position of rooms.

Kitchens are tiled with colour-coordinated worktops, and come fully fitted with a waist-height oven, hob, hood and fridge/freezer. Most of our developments also have integral washer/dryers fitted in all apartments as standard.

Our standards

The master bedrooms have fitted mirror-front wardrobes as well as TV and telephone points, with even the smallest details considered.

The apartments come with tiled shower rooms as standard, while some of them have separate en-suites and cloakrooms as well – all designed for ease of use and with the needs of our customers in mind.

All apartments are stringently inspected by our Customer Services department to ensure they are handed over to the standard of finish and quality expected by our customers.

Retirement Living Testimonials

Mr Woods

Petlands Lodge, Haywards Heath

“Having looked at other apartments in the area I settled on Petlands Lodge, for the central location and free parking. My apartment has a balcony which is most enjoyable in the lovely summer weather we have. It really is a pleasure living at Petlands Lodge.”

Laurel Lodge, Carshalton

"There are several like-minded people here and it’s a good community to be a part of. Living here is as near perfect as I expected it to be. I’d been considering retirement living for a while, and when I found out about Laurel Lodge it was the perfect solution. Downsizing was tough, and I had to be ruthless about de-cluttering a lifetime’s worth of possessions, but I got plenty of help and it was well worth it now I’m here in my attractive new apartment. I can see why the process of de-cluttering is daunting for some, but I’d encourage anyone else to do the same and they will reap the benefits once it’s done."

The historic town of Calne

Calne is an historic market town on the River Marden located on the edge of the North Wessex Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

  • This development is ideally located at the heart of this bustling town with close proximity to the Post Office, a supermarket, hairdressers, banks and coffee shops.
  • Visit the heritage quarter and enjoy a selection of independent shops and cafes, the Heritage Centre and the outstanding Atwell Wilson Motor Museum.
  • The recently restored Castlefields Canal and River Park provides some lovely walks and cycle paths alongside the canal and the river, with lovely views along the track to Black Dog Halt.
  • You can also connect to the North Wiltshire Rivers Route which is part of the Sustrans National Cycle Network and which leads you all the way to Chippenham following the old Calne railway route.
  • A market still runs every Friday in the New Market Place with stalls selling local fruit and vegetables, fresh fish and quality butchery. On the second Saturday of the month Calne Springs craft and produce markets are held in Phelps Parade and New Market Place.
  • Just over two miles away is the the beautiful village of Cherhill which boasts the famous Cherhill White Horse and monument, and a bit further afield are Avebury stone circle and West Kennet Long Barrow.
