Welcome to Gradwell Park – our brand new community on the edge of  England’s National Park, the South Downs, near the picturesque market town of Lewes in East Sussex.

Community at heart

There are many benefits to living within a community environment. Whether it’s a large and diverse community, or a smaller more intimate group of like-minded individuals, we thrive in places where we feel we belong and are supported. All of our beautifully designed homes, communal areas and amenities have been created to promote a sense of community. Our brand-new clubhouse is the very heart of the village and provides spaces for dining, relaxing and socialising. A place where you can feel right at home, whether that’s a drink in the bar with friends, Sunday roast in the restaurant with family or the simple pleasures of reading a book in the library or a stroll around the grounds. The amenities are there to enjoy as you please.

Spacious apartments and cottages

As our newest boutique community, Gradwell Park offers a more personalised and intimate setting. There are just  65 homes in the village, fabulous amenities and a great team of staff who offer a wealth of experience in hospitality and wellness services.

We think it’s important to have choices. That’s why we offer you a variety of  tenures that are right for you. We’ve put a great deal of effort into the finishing touches for your new home too.

A typical apartment comprises a spacious open plan living/ dining room leading through to a fully integrated modern kitchen. Each of our spacious cottages also have large open-plan sitting rooms with ‘room’ to dine. They even have their own terraces, some of which overlook the beautifully landscaped grounds and the stunning South Downs.

Designed with both form and function in mind, all of the homes at Gradwell Park provide you with a canvas upon which you can add your own personal touches and truly make your house your home.

You’re part of the club

Our communities are all about bringing people together, creating a sense of inclusivity with our extensive range of amenities and clubs available to you. From fitness classes in the on-site gym, keeping those green fingers lean  with the gardening club, pampering yourself in our onsite beauty salon, or taking a stroll around the village’s very own nature trail  – there’s plenty to keep you busy and interested.

Living at Gradwell Park

It’s ideally suited to those who appreciate a warm and hospitable environment, and with a Village Manager who’s spent over 40 years working in hospitality the Gradwell Park team really knows how to make you feel welcome and supported.

Good for everyone, good for the planet

Our communities are designed with sustainability in mind. All of our villages incorporate a considered and sustainable approach to design, construction and maintenance. We partner with local suppliers and are committed to sourcing ingredients and produce from local farm shops and the local distilleries.

A warm East Sussex welcome

At Gradwell Park, and as with all Retirement Village Group’s communities, we pride ourselves on being as welcoming and inviting as we can be, not just to our immediate community members but their friends and families and the wider community also. We aim to integrate our communities as seamlessly as possible into the local area and ensure we provide plenty of opportunities to benefit everyone.

We also provide exemplary guest accommodation on site should you wish to have friends and family to stay but are unable to accommodate them, or they simply wish to have their own space. This is your home, your community and we’re here to ensure you make the most of it.


Being part of a community that focusses on your wellbeing is what makes Gradwell Park special; where you can meet like-minded neighbours and feel supported.
