Moat Park, Essex

Retirement lifestyle in Essex countryside

Moat Park retirement village is one of Essex’s best kept secrets. Tucked away in rolling countryside just outside Great Dunmow, the established independent living retirement village is also complemented by an excellent range of care options.

It is an age exclusive retirement village offering a range of one and two bedroom apartments and cottages for the over 55s.

The development is made up of 26 private apartments, designed specifically to meet the aspirations of the over 55s. Residents live independently in a mix of one and two bedroom apartments but are able to take advantage of the lovely facilities on site. These include a communal clubhouse where they can meet for a bite to eat, a morning coffee, early evening drink or perhaps a little peace and quiet in the library.

Active social calendar

The village is set in beautiful landscaped grounds complete with ornamental lakeside walks and lovely views over open Essex countryside.

Residents have organised a range of special interest groups and there is an active social calendar should you want to get involved – or you can dip in and out as you wish. The choice is entirely your own.

Residents invariably want to maintain their independent lifestyles but have the assurance that assistance is available should it be required in later years.

A full range of care facilities are available at Moat Park – including The Moat House – a purpose-built 72-bed care home providing a mix of residential, nursing and dementia care.

Domiciliary care is also available to residents who require personal or practical assistance in their own homes managing a range of challenging daily chores.
