About The Hawthorns

The concept of The Hawthorns retirement communities and lifestyle was the brainchild of family man Bill Colson who founded the original company in the US over 30 years ago. This has grown to become one of the largest and most successful operators of retirement communities in the world.

The unique concept of luxury, apartment-style retirement communities set within a purpose built facility established the company as the leading provider in the US with the first UK operation launching, to much acclaim, in 1985 with The Hawthorns in Clevedon, Somerset. This was followed by The Hawthorns in Eastbourne in 1999 and then by The Hawthorns in Braintree, Essex in 2009. With all three award-winning UK retirement villages fine-tuned for the UK market, the flexibility of our rented apartments across our Hawthorns sites has proven popular. Most recently in 2010 The Gardens were added to The Hawthorns in Eastbourne, and comprised a small retirement hamlet of bungalows and maisonettes.

In 2015 a fourth location in Aldridge in the West Midlands was added to the portfolio, building upon the values and quality of service already established, but with the extended level of service to include care and support based upon resident needs. Registered with the Care Quality Commission (the CQC), even greater peace of mind is now provided, with highly qualified care staff on hand around the clock.
