Lockyer Lodge is a delightful development of 40 one and two bedroom retirement apartments located in the heart of Sidford with glorious views across the Sid Valley and Salcombe Hill. Sidford High Street is home to a convenience store and Post Office, a hairdresser and several popular pubs and restaurants whilst a large health centre and Waitrose are less than a mile away.
Sidford is a pretty village on the outskirts of the popular seaside town of Sidmouth in Devon. Considered to be the gateway to the beautiful landscape of The Jurassic Coast, a large part of the town is also designated conservation area.
The picturesque Regency Town of Sidmouth has an excellent selection of independent shops, eateries and amenities which include a swimming pool, library, theatre, cinema and a community hospital.
Sidford is perfectly placed for exploring the famous South West Coast Path with walks to suit all ages and abilities. For something different, search for the stars at the Norman Lockyer Observatory and Planetarium on Salcombe Hill after which the Lodge is named.
Lockyer 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.
Sidford is 15 miles east of Exeter which benefits from excellent road connections with the M5 and A30, and a railway station which is on the main London line. There are regular bus routes to other local towns and villages.
Lockyer Lodge’s manager, Tina, is on hand throughout the day to support the owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Tina arranges 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.
Lockyer 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.
Lockyer Lodge requires at least one apartment resident to be over the age of 60 with any second resident over the age of 55.
