Eaton Lodge is a beautiful development of 33 one and two bedroom retirement apartments in the suburb of Hoole, just 1 mile east of Chester’s city center. Chester is one of the oldest and most complete walled cities and considered one of the jewels in Britain’s crown.
Eaton Lodge is named after Eaton Hall, The country house of the Duke of Westminster. The city is full of history with truly stunning architecture, great shops, parks and restaurants and home to the famous 1897 Eastgate Clock which forms part of the city walls.
Hoole’s main shopping area on Faulkner Street is just a few hundred yards down the road with everything from grocery shops, hairdressers, banks and a doctor’s surgery. Coronation Playing Fields and Alexandra Park are each less than 100 yards away with access to tennis courts and a bowling green. Chester Golf Club is less than 3 miles away and provides a challenging game alongside the River Dee.
Public transport is excellent with a bus stop right outside the Lodge, UK rail links from the city center and both Manchester and Liverpool John Lennon Airports close by.
The apartment has an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. A Careline integrated intruder alarm, secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.
Eaton Lodge’s manager is on hand throughout the day to support the owners and keep the development in perfect shape. They arrange many regular events in the Owners’ Lounge from coffee mornings to games afternoons. For any visiting guests, the furnished twin guest suite is perfect and available for just £15 per night for 1 visitor and £20 (£10 each) for 2 visitors.
