Retire to a piece of Devon history
The Priory retirement village is steeped in history. It provides a wonderful backdrop for an active retirement village, based in the lovely Devon countryside with wonderful far reaching rural views.
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.
You can keep up with the progress here.
The newly refurbished facilities will be officially opened in the summer – register to secure your invite here.
The Priory also has a small library and an indoor swimming pool, also undergoing refurbishment, for residents to enjoy and a minibus for trips into town or further afield. The village also has its own hair salon and a private hairdresser who visits for booked appointments providing a very welcome and convenient service.
The landscaped grounds are punctuated with a croquet lawn, putting green, woodland walk where you can discover a beautiful chapel, orchard and wildflower meadow.
