Blagdon Village is the perfect retirement option for anyone who enjoys the wide open spaces of the Somerset countryside; the benefits of living in the county town of Taunton; and who enjoys the social life of living in an age-exclusive environment.
The village, aimed at the over 60s, offers independent living in a thriving community whilst taking full advantage of the fantastic amenities on the doorstep.
There are a number of local parks that lie close to the village including the ever-popular Vivary Park and Exmoor National Park. And yet, Taunton town centre is just a short walk away. Blagdon Village ticks lots of retirement wish list boxes.
A vibrant and active community of like-minded people ensures there is something for everyone at Blagdon Village.
With more than 20 interest and social groups, a full diary of activities and regular impromptu get togethers, the village is a hive of activity.
It comprises 85 purpose-built cottages, bungalows and apartments clustered around Blagdon Lodge, the hub around which most things revolve.
The beauty of the lifestyle is that residents can be as involved as they wish or simply live quite, independent lives – dipping in and out of social events as and when they wish. The choice is entirely your own.
There is a restaurant, bar, garden room and lounge all of which have the flexibility to be used as meeting rooms and events areas. There is a hair salon, a fitness room with exercise equipment chosen by residents and, for those who enjoy a more sedate form of exercise, a snooker room and, outside, a putting green.
You don’t have to venture far in the village before you are greeted with a friendly face as residents embrace the community feel that comes with village life.
For those reasons, and so many more, Blagdon Village is ideal for those looking for an independent lifestyle, with the added extra a retirement village has to offer
