Our Unique Retirement Village Concept

All of the beautifully appointed retirement apartments at The Hawthorns Braintree are available on a monthly rental basis. Our all-inclusive monthly charge includes all meals, activities, excursions, housekeeping, bills, free Wi-Fi and parking, and of course building and garden upkeep. With just one month’s notice there is flexibility all round and there are no on-going maintenance costs nor hidden exit fees like many other retirement villages – just a one-off community charge to ensure that each apartment comes freshly decorated and with new carpets where required.

Hawthorns residents lead an independent, active lifestyle free of the daily worries and hassles of modern life. We are a friendly, companionable retirement community of like-minded seniors; we dine together, we have fun together, and when we are not doing this, chances are we are relaxing in the privacy of our own apartments. We are truly a retirement home from home.

Our Rental Apartments

The Hawthorns offers a choice of studio, one or two-bedroom apartments. Some apartments have balconies and patios, but all are modern, light and airy and decorated to a high standard. Each has a kitchenette and shower room and comes fully fitted with carpets and curtains, although you may bring your own if you prefer. The apartments are for you to furnish in your own way.

All apartments have TV, telephone and internet points, instant hot water, temperature control on the central heating and since there is an integrated alarm system and a supportive manager on call 24-hours a day, no need for any concerns about safety and security.

If you wish for a stress-free retirement based on independence and flexibility in an environment which is energetic and fun, then The Hawthorns Braintree may be just what you are looking for. Why not request a free brochure to find out more or give us a call and book a tour?

Hawthorns Braintree Retirement Village

 

All Play & No Work!

As well as your own personal living space, there is much more to enjoy at The Hawthorns. Our retirement village is not just a collection of apartments; we are a vibrant, friendly community of retirees. Residents and their guests can be found in our coffee lounge where you can sit and chat over a morning coffee, a library for quiet times with the daily paper or a good book, a cinema room for movie screenings and a hair and beauty salon for that bit of extra pampering.

Friends and family are always welcome to join us for meals as well as recreational activities. They are part and parcel of the atmosphere of our home. If your apartment is not big enough to put up guests, you can arrange for them to stay in a guest room, and if you would like to have a special celebration with your loved ones, a private dining room is at your disposal.

It won’t be difficult or a chore to make new friends as there is so much going on, once you step outside your apartment. Whether it is our monthly tea dances and regular talks, performances and shows including a regular pianist on the grand piano, quiz nights and special evenings such as the New Year’s Eve Dinner and Ball make for a full social calendar.

Day to day, there are activities such as indoor bowls, croquet on the lawn, chess, snooker and plenty keep-fit and crafting sessions. Our minibus can take you to the shops or out on trips, as there is so much lovely countryside waiting to be explored, whether it is the estuaries and creeks of the Essex coast or slightly further afield to the Constable territory of Dedham Vale. Many residents volunteer locally and enjoy raising money for charity, we are certainly a community that is active with, and well connected to, the local Braintree area.

Food for Thought

We know how much importance residents place on their meals, so we make sure that each dining experience is as good as we can make it. It’s quite an atmosphere when we all gather and the dining hall hums with chatter and the talk of upcoming events.

Recent Testimonial From One of Our Residents

“Dad lived at The Hawthorns Braintree from the April 2015 to September 2017. During that time I visited him on a very regular basis and came into contact with a broad range of staff, including members of the management team, reception and catering staff, minibus drivers, gardeners and maintenance, and room cleaners. Without exception every one of them were pleasant and helpful and entirely focussed on delivering excellent customer service both for residents and visitors. Dad was very happy living at The Hawthorns, Braintree and it was only ill health that forced him to leave and move on. Dad told me that The Hawthorns Braintree was a wonderful place to live and one where he always felt safe and secure and well looked after.”
