Amelia Lodge is a stylish development of 33 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments, situated in the exclusive Bristol suburb of Henleaze.
Amelia Lodge is named after the English novelist, journalist and Egyptologist, Amelia Edwards, who lived in Westbury-on-Trym since 1864 and was buried in St Mary’s Church, Henbury. She founded the Egypt Exploration Society in 1882 which today is still a leading archaeological organisation.
Amelia Lodge is ideally located close to all local amenities. It is just a short walk to Henleaze Road, with its wide selection of both independent and specialist stores, including butchers, bakers and delicatessen, all providing locally sourced food. The town holds a food and craft market every second Saturday of the month, which features 30 stalls selling a diverse range of produce from gourmet sausages, preserves, freshly baked bread and local honey to handmade chocolates, crafts and gifts.
Getting out and about couldn’t be easier. Henleaze is well served by public transport, with frequent bus services to Bristol. By road, the A38 from the South, and the M32 from the North are the main roads to the city of Bristol, and by rail Bristol is at the hub of the national rail network in the West of England; First Great Western and other major train operators run local, regional and inter-city services from Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway Station. Bristol International Airport offers extensive flights both to domestic and worldwide destinations.
Henleaze is less than 3 miles from Bristol city centre, where you will find a comprehensive choice of shopping, food and recreational facilities. The city of Bristol, the 2015 winner of the European Green Capital Award, is a real melting pot of architecture through the ages from the ruins of the Norman castle in Castle Park, to the gothic masterpieces of Bristol Cathedral and St Mary Redcliffe, as well as many museums and galleries. Cabot Circus has 140 shopping outlets within a safe, pedestrianised area, many eateries and coffee shops and a 13-screen cinema. Bristol has a packed programme of events with an exciting mix of music, literature, entertainment and outdoor fun. No matter what time of year it is, you will be guaranteed to find events that suit your interests.
The Lodge has a super efficient air source heat pump which warms both the lodge and the apartments. The cost of this is included in the service charge.
Amelia 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. 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.
Amelia Lodge’s manager is on hand throughout the day to support the residents 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 £20 per night for friends and family. The same excellent value is available for you to use across more than 150 Retirement Lodges throughout the UK.
