Kent, the ‘garden of England’ has so much to offer retirees – and it’s one of Beechcroft’s favourite locations for building retirement apartments and houses.
If you’re looking for retirement homes for sale in Kent in the near future, register your interest with Beechcroft to ensure you receive full details of the forthcoming retirement apartments, designed exclusively for the over 55s and located in Royal Tunbridge Wells.
All Beechcroft’s elegant retirement homes provide an abundance of light-filled living space and the majority provide a terrace, balcony, private garden or a combination of these, as well as a beautifully landscaped and fully maintained setting.
Why choose Kent? There are so many reasons. Kent offers an enticing combination of coast and countryside, historic attractions and shopping destinations along with easy access to London. If you enjoy travelling in Europe, you can take the Eurostar from Kent to Paris via Ashford International, take the ferry from Dover to Calais or fly to Paris from London Gatwick.
Beechcroft selects the best locations for its retirement developments in Kent, within easy reach of local shops, services and transport links, and our forthcoming development in Tunbridge Wells, Montier Place, is no exception.
All Beechcroft’s new retirement 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 easily maintained and many include the Beechcroft Healthihouse specification, designed to create a living environment that promotes good health.

There’s so much to see and do in Kent – which is perfect if you’re hoping to make the most of your retirement.
Tunbridge Wells, famed for its glorious parks and commons, is a great place to live and visit. Stroll in Calverley Park and Calverley Gardens in the heart of town where you can enjoy music in the summer or put on your skates (or the grandchildren’s) at the winter ice rink. Enjoy the lakes, grottoes and winding walks in Grosvenor and Hilbert Park but when you’re ready for a spot of retail therapy, you’ll find over 70 independent stores, art galleries, cafes, restaurants and bars in The Pantiles – or all the High Street names at the award-winning Victoria Place shopping centre.
If you enjoy being close to nature, follow the footpaths and bridleways in Ashdown Forest, just over the Sussex border and about 15 miles from Tunbridge Wells. This is the largest public open space in the Southeast and was the inspiration for Winnie-the-Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood.
For coastal Walks or days on the beach, Kent’s 350-mile coastline is dotted with sandy and shingle beaches, fringed with chalk downland, marshes and nature reserves.
Kent’s incredibly rich sense of history is apparent in the wealth of historic sites from Richborough Roman Fort and Lullingstone Roman Villa to Leeds Castle, described as the ‘loveliest castle in the world’ and the impressive Canterbury Cathedral. National Trust properties include Penshurst Place, Hever Castle – once home to Anne Boleyn, Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens and Chartwell, once owned by Churchills. Dover Castle offers great views of France, and the Historic Naval Dockyard at Chatham provides an insight into the naval heritage that played an important role in English history.
The cultural scene is alive and kicking in Kent with museums, theatres, galleries, music venues and a host of events and festivals. Tunbridge Wells is home to the Assembly Hall Theatre, one of the largest venues in Kent, with a programme of music, comedy, theatre, dance and more. The Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate showcases aspects of the work of JMW Turner as well as touring modern art exhibitions. Folkestone has its own thriving creative quarter – with creative businesses and studios. In Rochester, a beautiful 17th century building provides an introduction to the area’s history and, among the highlights, are the Dickens Discovery Room and a Victorian drawing room. Fans of Charles Dickens will head to the Dickens House Museum in Broadstairs.
