Blagdon Village, Somerset
Best of both worlds in Somerset
Blagdon Village enjoys the best of both worlds and ticks so many retirement lifestyle boxes.
It is located within walking distance of Somerset’s county town Taunton – in fact the centre is just a lovely stroll across the famous Vivary Park. But the age-exclusive retirement village is also perfectly placed to take advantage of the magnificent surrounding countryside including Exmoor National Park, the Quantock and Mendip Hills and the Somerset Levels.
A vibrant and active retirement 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 retirement 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.
Top quality facilities on site
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 retirement village before you are greeted with a friendly face as residents embrace the community feel that comes with village life.
