Castle Gardens is an exclusive retirement development of 41 elegant new homes in a beautifully landscaped setting just off Shirburn Road, less than ½ mile from Watlington High Street.

With 4 one-bedroom apartments, 22 two-bedroom apartments, 6 two-bedroom houses and 9 three-bedroom houses, there’s plenty of choice at Castle Gardens – and each new home has a terrace, balcony or private garden – or a combination of these, along with allocated parking.

Designed for the over 55s, these new, light-filled homes are energy efficient, easily maintained and excellent examples of Beechcroft’s commitment to creating properties with an abundance of living space, regardless of the number of bedrooms. Built and finished to Beechcroft’s rigorous Healthihouse™ standards, many of the high-quality fixtures and fittings include features that promote a healthy home environment.

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.

A classic car in Watlington, Oxfordshire.

A market town in the best tradition

Watlington may be one of the country’s smallest towns but its delightful range of independent retailers and regular fruit and veg markets attracts shoppers from miles around.

With a post office counter in the local Co-op, a pharmacy, a selection of independent retailers and several hair and beauty salons, you won’t need to travel far on a daily basis. For a larger, weekly shop, jump in the car and head to one of the nearby supermarkets, such as Waitrose in Wallingford.
