An introduction to...

The Priory

The Priory is a retirement village for the over 60s in the pretty South Devon village of Abbotskerswell. As the name suggests, it is built around a former mid 19th century priory within easy reach of Dartmoor National Park, Paignton, Newton Abbot, Totnes, Dartmouth and Exmouth.

Residents occupy a range of independent living retirement cottages and apartments and have access to the Forum, the social hub for village life.
Buying at The Priory, really is like investing in a piece of history, especially with its grade 2* listed status.

The Priory is currently undergoing an extensive restoration project to preserve the heritage of this magnificent building. External works are underway and work has now begun on the interior refurbishment which is expected to be complete Spring/Summer. Make sure you look out for details of our official opening event.

The main building is undergoing a substantial external restoration to ensure that original features will be retained, which will be completed Summer 2020. There are some eye-catching architectural details in the main communal building which is now the social hub for retirement village life.

The former Chapter House – now called The Octagon – offers a fantastic event space which is used by art groups and other special interest societies set up by the residents, for the residents. The Forum, our magnificent communal area is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment, which will be tastefully decorated and peppered with sumptuous sofas to create a welcoming space.
