Don’t Compromise on Style at Wadswick Green Retirement Village

When thinking of downsizing into a retirement home some might imagine a small and dated home where they would struggle to fit in all their personal belongings and furniture. They may worry about having to compromise on design, furnishings and quality fittings in exchange for a gain in convenience and care.  Rangeford Villages Wadswick Green, the lifestyle village for over 60s located in from Corsham, around 8 miles from Bath, proves that it is possible to combine modern design with the comfort of retirement living.

The village’s newest phase ‘Almond Close’ offers a choice of 45 brand new one, two and three bedroom apartments, all and all featuring contemporary architecture and designed with easy living in mind.

Beautiful floor-to-ceiling dual aspect picture windows create a spacious feel and allow residents to make the most of the stunning  views onto the surrounding countryside. Simple, open plans help to ease mobility in keeping with the needs of over 60s. The kitchens feature  innovative and modern characteristics, including moveable units, soft intelligent doors and drawer closers, as well as Silestone worktops for durability. Integrated lighting and the range of appliances by Neff also bring a quality feel to the space.

This carries through to the apartments’ bathrooms, which are designed with convenient walk-in-showers and luxury taps and fittings. The new homes are also energy efficient thanks to thorough insulation supported by the underfloor heating and modern double-glazed windows with incorporated low solar glazing, providing a particularly cosy home for the cold winter months. Residents are given the choice between two interior design colour themes -walnut or blond oak, which both create an inviting atmosphere.

Wadswick Green’s residents can easily assess the amenities of the village, centred around its hub,  The Pavilion. It boasts a spa with a wide range of treatments, a gym, swimming pool including Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and hair salon. In addition, Wadswick Green is home to The Greenhouse Coffee Shop and Restaurant, which has proven popular with residents and the local community alike.

Wiltshire resident Diana Harrison whose parents moved to Wadswick Green, comments: “Having lived at Wadswick Green for several months now, my parents absolutely love it and say it feels like being on holiday all the time. It truly is a relief for me to see both of them enjoying themselves and knowing that they are part of a friendly community, just down the road from me. It also gives me peace of mind to know that there is care and support available, should my parents ever require this.”

Boosting the residents’ wellbeing is also the village’s very own personal trainer and the many fitness classes taking place throughout the week. Residents enjoy a busy social life thanks to Wadswick Green’s events calendar, which is full of activities and day trips. Many hobby groups including walking, dancing and reading add to the list of things to do.

Long-term resident Marilyn McGee also comments: “There’s never a dull moment for us. We often jump into one of our cars for a road trip to nearby Bath or Swindon for some retail therapy, cinema visits or to eat out. If the weather looks a little grim, we motivate each other in Wadswick Green’s gym and pool to keep fit or relax in The Greenhouse to people-watch and enjoy a meal or cup of coffee.”
