About Beechcroft's retirement homes for sale in Hertfordshire

When selecting retirement development sites in Hertfordshire, Beechcroft always ensures that these are located within easy reach of local shops, services, transport links and green open spaces.

Both new and converted Beechcroft 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 including the upkeep of private gardens and the landscaped setting as well as being on hand to offer help and advice, if and when needed. 

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.

What makes Hertfordshire the best location to buy a retirement home?

With bustling towns and cities brimful of designer boutiques, High Street names and café bars, miles of accessible countryside, a wealth of cultural attractions and excellent road and rail links, Hertfordshire is the ideal place to live in retirement.

If you enjoy the outdoors, Hertfordshire offers some wonderful places to walk or cycle.  On the borders of Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire are the sweeping chalk hills, grassland, heathland and ancient woodland of the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Set amidst the Chiltern Hills, the 5000-acre Ashridge Forest forms part of the Ashridge Estate and, here, the woodland, commons and  chalk downland support a rich variety of wildlife.  Near St Albans, the 858-acre Heartwood Forest is famed for its pockets of ancient bluebell woodland, hedgerows, wildflower meadows and open grassland.  If you enjoy outdoor sports, there’s white-water rafting, golf, cycling and much more in the 10,000-acre Lea Valley Park which follows the Rier Lea through Hertfordshire. Golfers will be delighted to learn that there are approximately 65 golf courses in the county.

There are so many historic attractions in Hertfordshire.  St Albans is famous not only for its cathedral, Britain’s oldest site of continuous Christian worship, but also for its Roman heritage.  The Roman theatre at Verulamium is one of the finest examples in England – and this is just one of the city’s many Roman attractions which include a basilica, bathroom, part of the city walls and an outline of the London Gate.  A day trip to the Jacobean Hatfield House is always enjoyable.   Created on the site of Hatfield Palace, where Queen Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood, the current house has a range of fascinating features, and the gardens are exceptional.  Behind the turreted and domed façade of Knebworth House lurks a Tudor house and five hundred years’ history of the Lytton family.  If 20th century history is more appealing, just off junction 22 of the M1 at Shenley, there’s the De Havilland Aircraft Museum, where you’ll get close to some of the most iconic pre- and post-World War II aircraft.

According to research carried out in 2022, Harpenden and St Albans are two of the UK’s top shopping destinations with an excellent range of boutiques, High Street names and specialist stores, along with a wealth of places to eat and drink.  Most of the larger towns have their own shopping centres but, if you enjoy a bargain, head to The Galleria Designer Outlet in Hatfield.  The Galleria has an extensive range of brand outlets and high street names selling fashion, beauty and homewares at discount prices. When you need a break or are all ‘shopped out’ there are cafes, restaurants, a nine-screen cinema and giant adventure playground that the grandchildren will love.  .

From the fascinating Natural History Museum in Tring and the Henry Moor Studios and Gardens in St Albans to the theatre and cinema space at Art Deco Broadway in Letchworth Garden City and St Albans Museum and Gallery, Hertfordshire has cultural attractions to suit everyone.

If you enjoy travel, Hertfordshire’s transport links are excellent.   By road, the M1, A1 and M25 will get you into and around London – and the county is served by the A10 and M11.  If you’re travelling abroad, London’s Luton airport is situated in Hertfordshire.  From Harpenden and St Albans, trains travel into London’s St Pancras and Thameslink stations with a journey time of just over half-an-hour.  If you’re travelling from Tring, Berkhamsted, Hemel Hempstead or Apsley, your journey to London Euston will take between 26 and 38 minutes depending on the station you travel from.
