Beechcroft selects the best locations for its retirement developments, each being within easy reach of local shops, services and transport links.
Our new homes are designed to provide plenty of natural light and an abundance of generously proportioned living space but with fewer bedrooms than mainstream properties of a similar size. On each Beechcroft retirement development, an Estate Manager takes responsibility for the cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas as well as being on hand to offer help and advice, if and when needed. Landscaping is a priority and settings are planted to provide year-round colour and interest.
Within each Beechcroft home, the fixtures and fittings are of the highest standard including bespoke kitchens with a full range of integrated appliances, stylish bathrooms and en-suites which include elegant white sanitaryware, vanity units and fitted mirrors. Beechcroft homes are also energy-efficient and easy to maintain, and many include the Beechcroft Healthihouse specification, designed to create a living environment that promotes good health.

If you want to make the most of your retirement leisure time, Hampshire is a great place to live – brimful of history and cultural attractions, miles of scenic countryside, nature reserves and coastal walks.
Hampshire is perhaps best known as home to the miles of unspoiled woodland, heathland and river valleys of the New Forest, inhabited by wild ponies, deer and cattle. The South Downs National Park stretches from Winchester and Petersfield in Hampshire across the county to Eastbourne in Sussex. For those who enjoy walking or cycling, there are also countless tracks and trails along the Solent coastline, the River Hamble and the chalky streams of the River Test in the beautiful Test Valley.
In the summer months, Hayling Island, with a five-mile-long seaside shore and clean, child-friendly beaches attracts visitors from all over Hampshire. For a day out with a real ‘holiday feel,’ it takes just 45 minutes on the ferry to travel across the Solent from Portsmouth to Fishbourne on the Isle of Wight.
You’ll enjoy a fascinating day out at National Trust properties such as Uppark, Hinton Ampner, The Vyne in Basingstoke and Mottisfont Abbey and Gardens. Certainly, from Portsmouth’s historic dockyard, home to the Mary Rose, and Winchester Cathedral to Jane Austen’s home at Chawton, there’s no shortage of historic attractions.
Hampshire has a great music and arts scene with theatres like the Mayflower and Nuffield in Southampton, the Theatre Royal in Winchester, the New Theatre Royal in Portsmouth and Anvil Arts in Basingstoke, along with many local theatres and drama groups. Winchester’s popular annual Poetry Festival is just one of the county’s cultural events.
If you enjoy retail therapy, you’ll find a host of bargains at Gunwharf Quays – a quayside designer outlet with views over Portsmouth Harbour. Head to Southampton’s West Quay and discover 100 stores including John Lewis, M & S and about 50 fashion outlets and plenty of places to eat and drink. Basingstoke’s Festival Place is another popular retail location – but Winchester, with its charming pedestrian friendly shopping streets is a great place to spend a few hours.
