Situated on King Edward Avenue in the town of Dartford, Keyes Lodge is a stylish development of 68 one and two bedroom retirement apartments.
Dartford is a popular town located on the border of Kent next to the River Thames. Scenic locations include the 26-acre Central Park, providing glorious floral displays and walks alongside the Darent riverside and the smaller Hesketh Park, with sporting facilitates and the wooded Dell.

Home to a rich and varied heritage, Dartford dates back to the Domesday Book, where you will find 11 of its churches are mentioned. Interestingly, its Trinity Church dates back to the 1000’s and contains a 15th Century mural. It was here that the body of Henry V lay overnight for a requiem mass before burial at Westminster Abbey.

Dartford is a town which is not shy of royal connections, as it is particularly rich in Tudor history. Henry VIII constructed The Manor Gate House here between 1541 and 1544 which was given to Anne of Cleves.

Recently Dartford has launched its own blue plaque scheme, celebrating its historical events and figures. Well known figures from Jane Austen to The Rolling Stones have blue plaques in Dartford in their honour. Dartford museum is a highly recommended visit to learn more about this fascinating and historically rich town.

Located in the heart of Dartford is the Orchard Theatre, offering a wide selection of drama, dance, music and entertainment. In addition, the bright lights of the West End are only 45 minutes away. 

Providing perfect recreational pursuits is the local leisure centre, swimming pool and Dartford Bowls Club. A mobile library, in addition to Dartford Library, also services the area. Home to an extensive range of shops, the high street is lined with Medieval buildings. 

The famous Bluewater Centre and Lakeside Shopping Centre are within easy transport reach. The excellent transport links are a real benefit of Dartford. There are quick links to central London and good access to the M25. Buses also service the area and deliver delightful journeys to the magical heartlands of the Weald.

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.
