Our Retirement Village Rental Concept

Flexibility & Companionship in Your Retirement Years

“Live the retirement you deserve with the flexibility of our rented retirement apartments set amongst a thriving community of like minded souls”.

A Unique Approach to Retirement Living

Our concept of luxury, all under one roof, apartment-style retirement villages set within purpose built surrounds and a vibrant, almost club house like, community of the retired, established the company as the leading provider in the US. The first UK operation launched in 1985 with The Hawthorns Clevedon, Somerset.

This was followed in East Sussex with The Hawthorns Eastbourne in 1999 and then in Essex by The Hawthorns Braintree in 2009. With all three award-winning UK retirement villages fine-tuned for the UK market, the flexibility of our rented retirement apartments across our Hawthorns sites has proven popular. In 2010 The Gardens were added to The Hawthorns in Eastbourne, and comprised a small retirement community of bungalows and maisonettes.

Launched in March 2018 The Hawthorns Northampton is the latest edition to the Hawthorns portfolio and is leading the development of our rented retirement concept into the 21st century. This retirement community will take The Hawthorns to new levels of luxury retirement living and is proving to be a very popular choice for people in their retirement years drawn from across Northamptonshire.

Providing an Alternative to Ownership Based Property Traps

There’s been a lot of talk recently about the upfront and on-going costs and commitments to buying retirement village properties. Here is what the BBC recently said about it.

The Hawthorns retirement home rental model offers certainty, easy planning and flexibility. A unique, open and genuinely all-inclusive package with no hidden extras or surcharges. Our rental agreements attract no stamp duty or legal fees, and no exit fees. There is also no service or maintenance charges and no long term contract, just 30 days’ notice, giving everyone a degree of flexibilty that is invaluable in your retirement years.

With our new ‘try before you rent’ month long trial, people can sample our hospitality and communal retirement living in Essex, Somerset, East Sussex and Northampton. You can even move to another apartment with the minimum of fuss, perhaps to take in the Bristol Channel views at our Clevedon retirement village?
