Holistic wellbeing at Inspired Valley 

Work has just begun on the first of ‘Inspired Villages’ retirement villages in Kent, just up the road from the picturesque Leeds Castle, near Maidstone. Inspired Villages are so-called for good reason: their plush, quality interiors are designed to ensure your retirement years truly are the best years of your life. The Inspired philosophy is centred around each and every resident’s holistic wellbeing – looking after both their physical and mental health and encouraging them to enjoy a healthy, happy and independent life.

Moving to an Inspired Village has been compared to living permanently in a 5-star hotel – but with your own front door. This is not downsizing – it’s rightsizing. Does your present home have its own fabulous restaurant, bistro, library, beauty room, swimming pool and spa? All apartments offer plenty of storage, with carefully thought out kitchens and bathrooms using only the finest fixtures and fittings, while the easy maintenance, landscaped gardens are all taken care of, enabling you to make the most of every minute of your later years.

Retirement Luxury at Emerson Park

Emerson Park in Hextable, Kent, offers an exclusive collection of 47 luxurious retirement apartments, accompanied by a range of first-class retirement village facilities and services. Hextable is a thriving, traditional English village with the benefit of great transport links – central London is just over half an hour’s train journey away.

Paul Hart, manager at Emerson Park, comments: “Many people have the preconceived idea that retirement apartments are small, pokey flats with very little or no support or facilities. This certainly isn’t the case at Emerson Park; large well-designed apartments with the very highest quality specification are complemented with luxury amenities, such as the Club House Room where you can meet friends for a coffee or enjoy a three-course meal, obviously after enjoying a G&T in the bar first! You can keep in shape in the gym, be pampered in the hair and beauty salon or enjoy a good film in the cinema. Or why not take up a new hobby? Our dedicated Events & Activities team arrange a whole host of social events tailored around the interests of the people living here.”

As well as having all these facilities on your doorstep a move to such a retirement community not only means you can enjoy the independence of a new home but also live without the worry of the ongoing upkeep and maintenance associated with an older property. The exclusive apartments feature a spacious, flowing layout and the finest quality materials, finishes and fittings creating an elegant, contemporary ambience with all the mod-cons. 

“It’s not only the apartment and facilities which people are buying into at Emerson Park,” continues Paul, “but also the services. Our driver will provide scheduled trips, either to the local supermarket or to places of interest, such as National Trust properties, or a theatre trip. Our gardeners and maintenance team will ensure the site looks its best throughout the year. Plus, all apartments have the reassurance of an emergency call system which are answered by members of staff who are on-site 24-hours.”
