Living in a retirement village has advantages all year round but it has some even better benefits when it comes to summertime. Here are some of the best bonuses of summer living in a retirement village.
Lock up and leave!
With restrictions on their way to being lifted, holidays and trips away are – at long last – back on the cards. You can head out on your summery adventures knowing that your home is safe and secure in one of our villages. We have staff onsite 24/7 to make sure you and your home are always protected and safe. Living in an Inspired village also provides a greater sense of community; our residents look out for one another, so you can have a stress-free holiday knowing your home will be safe.
Explore the local countryside
The sites of our retirement villages aren’t random – they’re inspired! We select only the best locations; all of our villages are surrounded by the beautiful British countryside, so you can explore the area and enjoy the summer sun in gorgeous surroundings. You could take a morning walk, an evening stroll, or even a bike ride if you want to pick up the pace. There are plenty of pubs, cafes, and restaurants around our villages for you to have a pit stop, or you could bring your own picnic to enjoy.
Good times with friends
During retirement, a lot of people move to be closer to their families, so you may find friends are moving away which may leave you feeling isolated. However, at our retirement villages, we pride ourselves on creating a sense of community and bringing you to the heart of it. We have a whole host of activities on offer in the village centre – which is perfect for those wanting to make new friends with like-minded people who are at the same stage in their life. We’ve held VE Day celebrations, Petanque tournaments, music events and much more. What’s better than spending the summer months doing fun activities, eating good food, and lapping up the lovely weather with friends new and old.
Our retirement villages have a variety of excellent on-site facilities to enjoy all summer long, including gyms, spas, restaurants, and shops. We also have designated wellness navigators who organise and host a wide range of exciting activities to get involved in, from walking groups and exercise classes to arts and crafts and celebrating annual events with friends and neighbours.
“There are lots of activities and I usually organise swimming pool pilates once a week. There’s really something for everyone to enjoy; bridge, painting, singing and it’s easy to make friends if you join something you enjoy,” says Mary, a resident at Inspired’s retirement community in West Sussex, Durrants.
