Gittisham Hill Park, Devon

Retire to a place of outstanding natural beauty in Devon

Gittisham Hill Park near Honiton in Devon offers a wonderful retirement option. The village sits in 12 acres of parkland, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The flora and fauna is ever-changing and provides a stunning backdrop to a fulfilling and rewarding retirement lifestyle.

The village’s 32 independent living bungalows and 39-bed care home are surrounded by carefully maintained gardens and established woodland, creating an element of seclusion and tranquillity.

But the village isn’t isolated – Gittisham Hill Park is close to the bustling market town of Honiton, a range of local amenities and of course, the stunning Devon coastline.

A reassuring retirement solution

The retirement village is designed specifically for the over 65s and ongoing investment in the facilities continues.  In 2012, the original building – formerly a country house – was extended substantially to provide additional care bedrooms.

The investment also included the building of a new village clubhouse offering stunning panoramic views over the surrounding parkland and a vibrant social hub for activities and impromptu get togethers.  It gives residents of the bungalows their own dedicated space for events, functions and activities.

There is a library area, comfy sofas, dining space, a small kitchen and a wonderful outdoor terrace perfect for socialising when the weather allows.

Residents of the care home have also benefited from additional en-suite bedrooms and a new dedicated dining room, adding to the communal spaces they already enjoy.

It provides a reassuring solution to those couples requiring a mix of independence and supported care – enabling them to live together and enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle.

One partner may choose to live independently in one of the village’s high specification bungalows while their spouse can receive the care and support they need in the care home.  It can provide the best of both worlds and peace of mind for families.
