Situated adjacent to the Chantry Centre in Andover, Chantry Lodge is a stylish development of 65 one and two bedroom retirement apartments.
The picturesque market town of Andover in the Test Valley, with its attractive high street and narrow walkways, dates back to Saxon times. Most of the town's buildings are from the 18th century when it was an important stopover for coaches on their way to London, Southampton and Oxford.
The main High Street has a good cross-section of chain stores, banks and local shops providing for most shoppers' needs. The town centre also has a host of old pubs and restaurants offering a range of dining options.
The Chantry Shopping Centre, an indoor shopping centre, is a vibrant place to visit and is home to a variety of shops and eateries, it’s also where Andover Library is situated.
With its centuries-old history, Andover has some interesting museums such as Andover Museum and The Museum of the Iron Age. The Museum of Army Flying and the Museum of Army Chaplaincy show the influence that the army still has on local life.
Rooksbury Mill and adjacent Watermills Park situated south of Andover town centre are a popular location for walks and fishing. The two lakes, created through gravel extraction soon after WWII, are fed by the River Anton.
Chantry Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront, all apartments and communal areas have 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.
Chantry Lodge’s manager, Michael, is on hand throughout the day to support the Owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Michael assists with 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. The same excellent value is available across more than 150 Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
