Date nights don't belong to the young.

Own your retirement.

At Audley you're in charge, which means you can live the life you love, keep your highly valued independence and own your own property in a beautiful and secure environment. Because when you've worked hard to become the person you are today, we believe you shouldn't have to change your lifestyle when you retire.

Each house, cottage or apartment in one of our retirement villages is sold with a lease of up to 250 years. It is your home, held as your own asset – and, of course, you are free to sell at any stage, on the open market. So you are able to enjoy the benefits of a continued investment in a property of your own.

We look after the maintenance and security of your property and the grounds, leaving you free to explore the stunning landscaped gardens, enjoy fine dining in our restaurant, indulge in some pampering or keep up your love of travel knowing your home is safe and sound.

Visit a village safely

Visit your nearest village, Monday to Saturday

Our approach during the pandemic has always been to prioritise the health, safety and well-being of all of our team members, guests and the communities we look after within the grounds of every Audley village.

Whilst we welcome the easing of restrictions and are of course looking forward to welcoming more visitors and hosting some fantastic events, we continue to exercise appropriate care to keep everyone safe.

Downsizing is a big decision. People often ask...

What is a retirement village?

An Audley retirement village is a purpose-built beautiful and secure collection of houses, cottages and apartments, which are available to buy if you are over 55. In the centre of an Audley retirement village there is a centrepiece building, which houses the facilities of the Audley Club, of which you are automatically a member. The building may be a restored Tudor hall, a rebuilt Georgian manor or a refurbished Victorian villa with facilities including a restaurant, bar bistro, lounge, a health and wellbeing centre, treatment rooms and a swimming pool. It is also from here that we run the estate, maintain the grounds and properties and provide the services you require. Many of these restored, historic buildings have the added pleasure of containing exclusive apartments and penthouses that are available to buy.

* Facilities vary per village, please speak to your Audley sales team to learn more about the Audley Club.

More about how retirement villages work

Can I bring my pet?

Yes. Because it is your own home, held as your asset, you don't need to give up the things you love, including your pets. 

All well behaved pets are welcome, though we do ask that you let us know before you move in.

Find your nearest pet-friendly village

Are Audley villages age exclusive?

Yes, as a general rule if you're under 55, you'll have to wait to move into an Audley retirement village.

Do you offer properties to rent?

Not currently. At Audley, you own your own home and your property and gardens are maintained for you; we mow the grass and wash your windows. Plus, there is a restaurant, library, health suite with pool, gym and treatment rooms right on your doorstep, and Audley Care is on hand should you need it.
