Gradwell Park – Taking Shape for Summer

Diary posted

10th August 2021

Although summer appears to be taking a rather prolonged run-up this year, it’s given us time to focus on finessing the finishing touches at Gradwell Park, so that by the time the sun comes back to stay we’ll be ready to make the most of it.



At RVG, our interior design team are extremely passionate about maintaining a high standard of finish. We create spaces that people choose to spend a lot of their time in, therefore attention to detail is paramount. The common spaces need to be inviting, comfortable and elegant as it’s important for us that our residents feel a deep sense of pride in their surroundings.

Here are some of the latest areas we’ve been finishing off ready for residents to enjoy:


The Library: Our library is the ultimate comfort zone. We’ve designed and created a welcoming and calming space where residents can unwind, lose themselves in a good book or perhaps enjoy a few parlour games with friends.


Reception Area: Always ready to give a warm welcome, our reception space is designed to impress and inspire our residents and their guests. Warm, earthy tones and luxurious upholstery provide the perfect backdrop to the unfaltering geniality of Neil and Yvonne who are on hand to greet all our guests.


Wellness Centre: We are extremely proud of our Wellness Centre at Gradwell Park and have designed it as a space to really help motivate and energise its users. Complete with brand new, sustainable equipment, the gym will aid in a range of exercises, including strength, cardio, mobility and stretching, so you can focus on yourself and hitting your goals. In addition to the gym, we offer a range of wellness-based activities from stretching and toning classes to outdoor walking clubs.



One of Gradwell Park’s biggest selling points is the surrounding landscape. Outside the village grounds we have the rolling South Downs National Park on our doorstep with its approximate 260 square miles of awe-inspiring countryside. It’s our mission is to embrace nature as much as possible within the village gates also. Our Groundskeeper, Sophie, has been hard at work implementing a number of inspiring ideas to encourage Mother Nature and make our village a thriving, natural environment.


Planting out: Landscaping around the apartments is almost complete. A wide range of plants are bedding in nicely and will be complemented by areas enriched with beautiful wildflowers, which are not just lovely to look upon, they’re also performing a vital role within our eco-system by keeping our natural pollinators busy.


Nature trail: We’ve designed a nature trail that meanders through the village, providing a delightful view of all the flora and fauna and leading you through a thriving woodland area, ideal for a spot of bird twitching or seeking out other local wildlife, big and small. You can speak to Sophie about what types of trees and wildlife we have here.


Games lawn: Our spectacular games lawn is nearing completion also, and what a fantastic outdoor area this is set to be for our residents. In addition to providing a large, maintained lawned area perfect for the likes of boules tournaments or croquet, our games lawn happens to be situated next to our outdoor BBQ area, making it the ideal spot for the community to come together and share some good food and good company on a balmy summer’s evening.

If this seems like the ideal place to experience your summer (and all seasons), then feel free to contact us today to find your perfect place with us. 

Gradwell Park is a place to be you. A place to take pride in your surroundings. A place to embrace nature.
