Apsley Lodge is a delightful development of 27 one and two bedroom retirement apartments located in the popular town of Waterlooville.
The Lodge has been named after Apsley House, the London home of the first Duke of Wellington who defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The town is named after this battle and was reputedly where many soldiers returning to Portsmouth stopped to celebrate their victory and settled.
Well located for Waterlooville’s town centre, Apsley Lodge is ideally placed for the local shops, amenities and transport. The Boulevard is a busy pedestrian precinct, linking London Road with Dukes Walk and is home to a number of High Street stores, alongside smaller independent retailers, a Waitrose supermarket and the town’s library. Set in a pedestrian-friendly precinct, the town centre also hosts a weekly farmer’s market selling clothing, flowers and a selection of locally sourced meats and produce.
Waterlooville library has a monthly reading group and weekly games clubs and also runs a regular calendar of workshops covering interests as diverse as arts and crafts, computing, languages and music.
For those who enjoy sporting pursuits, Waterlooville Golf Club, designed by Sir Henry Cotton, is home to an 18 hole championship course with Clubhouse whilst at the nearby Jubilee Park, you can enjoy watching a game of football or cricket or partake in a game of tennis in one of the park’s courts. Waterlooville also has a vibrant calendar of community events running throughout the year including an annual music festival, Classic Motor Show, Summer Fete and Christmas Carols in the town’s bandstand.
The surrounding Hampshire countryside includes the breathtaking view of the South Downs National Park and the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, which has over 2,000 acres of woodland and downland. With the historic waterfront city of Portsmouth, Port Solent Marina and the Blue Flag beaches of Haying Island nearby, the town is a great location to get out and explore.
Apsley Lodge has been 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. 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.
Apsley 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 £40 per night (£20 each) for 2 visitors. The same excellent value is available across more than 150 Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
Apsley Lodge is managed by the award winning Millstream Management Services, working closely with Churchill Retirement Living and Stratton & King to maintain the highest standards of maintenance and service for every lodge and owner.
