Beatrice Lodge is a delightful development with 45 one and two bedroom retirement apartments, located in the modern market town of Sittingbourne.
Sittingbourne is a popular town located in the Swale district of Kent. Just 17 miles from Canterbury and within 45 miles of London, the town has been undergoing a significant regeneration project in recent years, making it a desirable place to live.
Train links to London Victoria and HS1 to St Pancras International mean Sittingbourne is in an ideal location for visits to the capital. The high street boasts a wide range of both national and local retailers and is less than half a mile away from the development. Several restaurants, cafes and tea rooms are scattered across the town and are all within easy walking distance.
The town has many leisure facilities including the light railway, a heritage railway that operates from Sittingbourne to the banks of the Swale and The Avenue Theatre, which offers musicals and films throughout the year. Sittingbourne’s new century Cinema can be found on the High Street.
For those who enjoy walking, Cromer's Wood Nature Reserve is home to various birds and wildflowers, making it a popular scenic location in Sittingbourne and Doddington Place Gardens, set in ten acres in the grounds of an imposing Victorian mansion, are close by.
Whether you would like to explore the local historic attractions, take in wonderful views, or relax in a coffee take in wonderful views, or relax in a coffee shop, Sittingbourne possesses something for everyone.
Beatrice Lodge is designed with safety and security at the forefront. 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. 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.
Beatrice Lodge’s manager, Abigail, is on hand throughout the day to support the residents and keep the development in perfect shape. The residents are extremely social with monthly social activities. Any visiting guests, the furnished twin guest suite is perfect and available for just £15 for single occupancy or £20 per night for dual occupancy.
