“My aunt loves her apartment, which is really bright and sunny. The quality of life here is tremendous. She has made a number of friends and very much enjoys the social aspect. It is perfect for her.”

Amenities on site

"Living at The Gardens Retirement bungalows gives residents the best of both worlds", explain managers of The Hawthorns, Eastbourne, Peter Harrison and Kiki Grigat. "Residents of The Gardens are welcome to join in on any of our activities or come along on our private coach for excursions.

"They can also enjoy meals in the beautiful Hawthorns dining room which means they don’t always have to cook; ideal if you are just back from a holiday or weekend away".

Detailed below are all of the amenities at The Hawthorns Eastbourne which are available to residents of The Gardens and included in their monthly rental charge:

Your Retirement Bungalow or maisonette

Ready to move in with fresh neutral decor with carpet and curtains provided. Bed linen and towels can be provided but you can, of course bring your own, together with your own furniture to make your Retirement Bungalow or Maisonette your own.

All Bills

All household bills (other than your personal contents insurance and your personal telephone bill) are included in your monthly fee.

Onsite Management Team

Our professional onsite Management Team at The Hawthorns ensures help and support are always on hand when needed and provides security and peace of mind for you and your family, even when you are away on holiday.


Each of our retirement bungalows and downstairs maisonettes have their own private garden. There are also colourful landscaped gardens accessible all year round  with seating areas and paved walkways. These are all maintained by our team of gardeners who are also happy to give you a helping hand with your lawn if required.

Activity and Social Room

The Activities Coordinator ensures there is always an interesting and varied choice of activities and social events for you to participate in, should you wish; from crafts and ‘sittercise’ to themed fairs and evening entertainment. Resident’s suggestions are always welcomed.

Private Dining Room

Residents at The Gardens Retirement Bungalows can also make use of the all-inclusive food service at The Hawthorns. Invite your friends and family to join you at The Hawthorns for special occasions, or even just for Sunday Lunch, and enjoy the privacy of this elegant private dining room for special occasions.

Private Minibus

The Hawthorns has its own private minibus which is used for trips into town, shopping trips, appointments and regular excursions.

Weekly Housekeeping

Your Retirement Bungalow or Maisonette will be surface cleaned weekly and your towels and bed linen provided by us, are changed and laundered weekly.
