Did you know?

Thamesfield is our smallest village. It has just 34 apartments. It sits quite literally on the banks of the Thames and overlooks the beautiful town of Henley on Thames in Oxfordshire.

Here are five facts you may not know about our village by the river:

- This year the village hosted a very special visit when the Home Secretary, Rt Hon Theresa May MP, called in for coffee and a chat with residents. More details of the visit are on our residents’ diary page.

- Thamesfield has its own boat mooring. It regularly organises boat trips along the Thames for residents and their guests.

- The village manager is also a registered nurse - Matron Wendy Eltze. 

- Thamesfield is the location of our 12 bedroom boutique nursing home

- The main building was originally a Victorian country mansion.

More information about Thamesfield is available here.

A perfect summer’s day

The three acres of grounds at Thamesfield are tended by our staff and this summer they look as pretty as a picture. This very short film was taken by a recent visitor to the village and captures a beautiful English summer’s day beside the Thames. We hope you enjoy it...

Welcome to Retirement Villages

DON’T MISS: Three of our villages are hosting open days this September.

More details of the special events are on our open day events page. Don’t miss a chance to come and sample retirement village living for yourself.

Welcome to Retirement Villages Group Ltd. We hope you find our website informative and useful to you. 

We also hope it inspires you to want to get in touch and find out more about this increasingly popular lifestyle option for yourself, a relative or friend. 

Our Portfolio

We are proud to say we now have 14 villages in our portfolio, spread across 11 counties in the southern half of the UK. Each one is very distinctive from the next but all provide the same equally high property specifications, a wide range of facilities and leisure amenities, impeccable service levels delivered by our teams of staff, and varyng levels of care support to suit your needs, now or in the future, including our own registered domiciliary care service.

What you can expect from a retirement village lifestyle

Whether you are looking for an apartment, a bungalow or a cottage, in a beautiful setting, our villages can provide this, and yet so much more...

We always maintain that while we design and build our villages, it is the residents who bring them to life. A retirement villages’ lifestyle allows you to do what you choose to do, not what you have to do. We take care of the day to day chores while you get on and simply enjoy your days, in the peace and tranquillity of your own private retirement home, or within the wider village setting at a village social event or outing.

Our rich history and our pioneering approach

Our company has been building villages for more than 30 years. We were responsible for bringing the retirement village model to the UK in the early 1980s when we opened the first of our retirement communities, Elmbridge Village in Cranleigh, Surrey. 

Our model allows you to own your own property in a retirement village, keeping an investment in the residential property market while having access to care and support where available. 

If you want to discover more

Whether you are familiar with the retirement villages concept or just starting your exploration of the living options available to you, this website will help you discover more about our villages, our properties, our care services, our lifestyle and our residents.

There are plenty of ways to find out more too. You can call us, request a brochure, come for a visit, drop into an event or have an e-newsletter delivered to your inbox. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
