The Hawthorns Braintree

The Hawthorns BraintreeImagine retirement living at its best, offering independence with the added reassurance that everything you could possibly need has been considered and taken care of. Life at The Hawthorns Braintree is charming and intimate yet offers a vibrant social atmosphere in a secure and fully managed setting.

Built at the prestigious Meadow Park site, a short distance from the historic Essex market town of Braintree, and garden village of Great Notley, our stylish studio, one and two bedroom apartments offer a type of living that quite simply leaves you free to enjoy life in your retirement.

The Hawthorns overlooks the beautiful Essex countryside and many of our apartments have sun terraces and balconies allowing you to enjoy the stunning sunsets on warm summer evenings. Our beautifully landscaped garden is enjoyed by many, includes our very own putting green and is often used for outdoor events. A selection of photos showing the beautiful surroundings and wonderful lifestyle offered by The Hawthorns can be viewed in our Braintree photographic gallery.

The spacious dining room brings everyone together or if you prefer you can make use of our private dining facilities inviting family and friends to celebrate a special occasion or simply to enjoy restaurant style dining. Our menus offer a choice of dishes and are designed to excite the palate.
