At Castle Gardens, you’ll be able to socialise with like-minded neighbours in the comfortable resident’s pavilion – which will soon become the hub of community activities and an on-site  Estate Manager is on hand to maintain the development including the communal and private gardens, to offer help and advice and keep an eye on properties whilst owners are away, leaving you able to relax into retirement at the heart of a community of independent, like-minded people.

Behind the name: Castle Gardens

The name of Beechcroft’s exclusive retirement development  in Watlington was inspired by its superb location.  

Set within beautifully landscaped gardens, the 41 elegant new homes are located adjacent to the grounds of the Grade I listed, moated, Shirburn Castle. 

Constructed in the 14th century, this fairytale castle was remodelled in the Georgian era by the first Earl of Macclesfield, whose descendants continued to live in the castle for 300 years. 

The ‘fairy tale’ exterior and unmodernised interior, has been used as a film location for film and television.
