How it works

Try before you buy*

A one or two night stay in one of our fully-equipped, furnished guest suites is the ideal way to get a real experience of life in an ERL retirement village.

Our guest suites are fully representative of the level of luxury you can expect from our properties, and all village facilities and events will be open to you, giving you the opportunity to meet some of your potential neighbours. When you arrive, you will be welcomed by a member of the team, who will show you around and ensure that you have everything you need to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. You will have the chance to join in with any events taking place, such as quiz nights, coffee mornings and musical events.  Complimentary breakfast will be provided.

Our villages offer the privacy and independence of a self-contained home and the sociability and security of a village community. Try Before You Buy* provides the opportunity to discover this special lifestyle for yourself.

Please contact us to find out more and arrange your stay.
