Manager's description

“Set in 250 acres of outstanding natural beauty, St. George's Park is possibly the most exquisite and visionary development, for the over 60's, available on the market.

This innovative concept will enable you to enjoy the freedom to concentrate on pleasures and pursuits. So, if you want to close your door and hop on a ferry to France, or visit family abroad, without the worry of maintenance and security, then you can do just that without a second thought.

Life at St. George's Park is designed around making life as simple as possible and utilises state-of-the-art technology to make everything run smoothly; all the new apartments have been designed for retirement living. Parking is available, but a fee must be charged for a Parking Permit in accordance with planning restrictions, at £7 per week. Visitors will be able to park free of charge in the designated areas”

Comments about St George's Park

It should be emphasised that this village has about 200 independently owned apartments occupied by by moderately healthy and mobile individuals who happen to be aged over 60 years of age. The Care Homes are seperated by beautiful meadows and trees some distance from the village centre. It is a wonderful place to live with most facilities being no more than a five minute walk and most neighbours being friendly and caring whether known to you or not.10/02/2013Patricia E (currently lives here)reply
