About Beechcroft's retirement homes for sale in Oxfordshire

Beechcroft selects the best locations for its retirement developments in Oxfordshire; each being within easy reach of local shops, services and transport links. 

Both new and converted 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. 

On retirement developments with a neighbouring care home, Beechcroft’s homeowners are able to take advantage of a menu of additional services from hot daily meals and laundry services to hairdressing and social events.

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

Historic market towns, wonderful open countryside, woodland and riverside walks, a wealth of sports and activities and a host of historic attractions and cultural venues, make Oxfordshire a county where you can really relax into your retirement.

If you enjoy getting out and about, closer to nature, follow the Ridgeway or Thames Path national trails, head to Watlington Hill to take in the views over beech and ash woodland – and the sight of Red Kites wheeling overhead - or explore the North Wessex Downs, brimming with wildlife.  The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has a fantastic waymarked cycle route passing historic villages and country pubs.  Set against the backdrop of this scenic countryside, you’ll find a plethora of outdoor sports including golf, shooting, fishing, horse-riding and water sports.

Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, has a fabulous sense of history and a rich culture with art galleries, museums, theatres, cinema, cosy, traditional pubs and an enticing choice of places to eat.  Each of Oxfordshire’s vibrant market towns has its own character, atmosphere and particular character.  Towns like Henley-on-Thames, Burford, Watlington and Wallingford have much to offer in terms of specialist stores, independent retailers, cafes and restaurants and, of course, local services.  Across the county, you’ll find local branches of the U3A and the WI, as well as community fitness classes from dance to yoga, clubs offering everything from bell ringing to music, art and amateur dramatics.

From Grey’s Court, near Henley-on-Thames to Chastleton House near Stow on the Wold and Waddesdon Manor built for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, there are plenty of National Trust properties for day’s out.  One of the most splendid historic houses, however, must be Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, set within 2,000 acres of glorious woodland and birthplace of Winston Churchill.
