Audley Inglewood

Our Berkshire retirement village is near to Newbury, situated in the heart of Kintbury in Hungerford. The idyllic country setting boasts stunning scenery, useful transport links, historic and famous attractions and of course beautiful retirement properties.

Geographically, Inglewood is one mile from the village of Kintbury; two miles from Hungerford in West Berkshire. It is both a breath of fresh, rural air and a place that connects you to all the services and amenities you will need to live the life you want to.

Highclere Castle

Best known today as Downton Abbey from the popular TV series, Highclere Castle in Newbury is just 20 minutes from Audley Inglewood.

The earliest record of Highclere Castle can be dated back to an early Anglo-Saxon charter dated 749AD which recorded the existence of buildings around the present site of the castle. Further records reveal a medieval palace built during the twelfth and thirteenth century; major rebuilding works were carried out in the late 18th and early 19th centuries; and in 1838 the third Earl of Carnarvon brought in Sir Charles Barry to transform his home into a grand mansion.


Kintbury was named by the Sunday Times in 2007 as one of England's top ten most sought after villages. And one can see why. This pretty village boasts some of the best countryside in West Berkshire and yet is conveniently close to the A4 and main line station from London, with junction 14 of the M4 nearby. However, when you want to travel at a more leisurely pace, The Kennet and Avon Canal quietly connects the famous antique shops and independent boutiques of Hungerford with Newbury's colourful markets and contemporary retail shops.

A walk around these parts is good for body and soul, and if you take a leisurely stroll up and around Walbury Hill, you will be rewarded with views over Kennet Valley and south over the Hampshire Downs.

Horse-drawn canal cruises

An opportunity to appreciate the scenery at a slower pace, the Kennet and Avon canal horsedrawn cruises are a hidden gem.

The traditional 1800s-style canal barge operates in the daytime and early evening, and is equipped with a licensed bar. Available for group bookings and private charters, this is an outing to be enjoyed by all ages.
