Summer is a great time to start a new hobby. With the longer days and lighter evenings, you have more time to enjoy the things you want to. Many people take up new hobbies in retirement, whether it’s to keep active in your mind or body, a community with a buzzing social life might just be what you’re looking for.

All of our communities have a clubhouse with yoga, art classes, bridge, book clubs, and much more going on. If an active social life is for you perhaps consider one of these properties:

Located in the new and growing community of Debden Grange, Newport, Essex, 3 Fallow Drive is a two-bedroom cottage with a private terrace.
