A relaxing retirement lifestyle at The Priory


Retirement Villages wants all residents to enjoy a fulfilling retirement lifestyle. For some that could mean taking it easy and doing very little; for others it could mean trying new things and being at the heart of social networks. At The Priory, the range of facilities makes it possible for residents to do as they choose.

The original chapel of the 19th century Priory has been transformed into The Forum – the social hub for village life and where the restaurant serves lunches on select days.

The former Chapter House – now called The Octagon – offers a wonderful event space which is used by art groups and other special interest societies set up by the residents, for the residents.

Above The Forum sitting on a mezzanine floor is a small library and in the same building at ground level is an indoor swimming pool for the more active retirement residents.


Family and friends invited to stay in guest suite

Residents are encouraged to invite family and friends to join them to use the facilities in the retirement village and a guest suite is available for overnight stays should it be required.

The Priory is home to an active retirement community, residents enjoy organising events, social occasions, special interest and hobby groups.

The retirement village has been creatively developed to create the perfect atmosphere for residents. Criss-crossed paths are ideal for exploring the grounds and discovering the chapel in the woods. Thoughtfully placed seating areas provide the perfect spot for enjoying the lovely views.

There is also a croquet lawn, putting green, woodland walk, orchard and wildflower meadow – perfect for quiet contemplation, relaxation and leisure activities.

A retirement village minibus opens up lots of possibilities to residents including day trips and outings to places of interest which are many and varied being so close to Dartmoor, and the south Devon coastline.

For complete peace of mind, a 24/7 emergency response service is available managed by a local call centre.
