Audley St. Elphin’s House, the magnificent centrepiece of Audley St. Elphin’s Park retirement village, has officially opened after extensive restoration.  

The event was attended by Nick Sanderson, Chief Executive of Audley Retirement and Lord Edward Manners, brother of the 11th Duke of Rutland, and resident of nearby Haddon Hall. Amongst other VIP guests were Derbyshire High Sheriff Mr Alan Woods, Councillor George Wharmby, Chairman of Derbyshire County Council and Ingrid Pasteur, Mayor of Darley Dale.

Nick Sanderson, CEO Audley Retirement, said: “We’re pleased to be opening the doors to St.Elphin’s House. It’s very rewarding for all of us at Audley Retirement to be able to bring back to life another beautiful property for the local community to enjoy. Having been a former school many from the local area will hold fond memories of the site. 

“Our residents and members will benefit from the restoration of a wonderful property, as well as the availability of an exclusive country club, complete with terrace, restaurant and bistro facilities, and a swimming pool. This is another step in the development of the Audley model of retirement living which focuses on providing choice and independence for those in later life.”

Over the next two weeks, Audley St. Elphin’s Park will also be holding exclusive preview days where visitors can view the stunning new show apartment and four of the properties on sale. The public are invited to preview the show apartment by appointment on 19th-21st September and 26th-28th September. Visitors can book a tour by appointment.
