Bespoke Retirement Living In the Rose of the Shires

Posted 12th June 2021

The welcoming Hawthorns retirement community in Northampton, recipients of the prestigious Hospitality Assured award for its first-class services, provides quality independent living for the retirement sector.   

This landmark building adjoins open fields yet is close to amenities such as shops, restaurants, a multiplex cinema and a leisure complex with a pool and excellent transport links. With spacious studios, 1-bed and 2-bed apartments, all with kitchenette, en-suite shower and flat-screen TV, it’s a safe and secure community with round-the-clock management and call system. 

The Hawthorns is the established and expert rental retirement operator in the UK, having first opened a service some 25 years ago. It maintains a unique and market-leading approach to retirement living, with an all-inclusive rental model instead of purchasing, which often includes hidden costs such as ground rent, service charges, and maintenance alongside costly ‘exit’ fees.

The all-inclusive Hawthorns rental model offers clarity, easy planning, and flexibility. There are no charges for property repairs, gardening costs, utility bills, council tax, internet charges, weekly housekeeping and bedlinen laundry, or transport costs on days out in the private minibus. There are three high-quality restaurant meals a day and hot and cold refreshments throughout each day, plus daily entertainment, and activities to support your well-being.

Why Wait? “There comes a time in your life when changes in lifestyle and circumstances enforce a change of direction. I spent one month sampling the lifestyle at The Hawthorns with little expectation that this would be my choice for the future, but I was completely converted by the end of that time.

 Even in the midst of the pandemic, I was so impressed with the care and attention given to every aspect. The management and staff cannot do enough to make this a great experience – the entertainment and activities, menus, housekeeping, and maintenance all contribute to luxury living. There is always a member of staff to advise or assist with absolutely anything. The surroundings inside and out are exceptional.

 Perhaps the greatest benefits are having my independence and the freedom to live my life the way that I wish but having support and friendship at hand. So many pressures and cares have been lifted.” – Barbara Brown, The Hawthorns Northampton resident.
