Gerard Lodge is a prestigious development of 39 one and two bedroom retirement apartments in the seaside town of Bognor Regis. The Lodge is named after Gerard Young, the author and historian who lived in Bognor Regis and wrote much of the area’s local history. The development is well located to the town centre which offers a wide selection of High Street and specialist shops, supermarkets and a traditional shopping arcade. The nearby seafront also boasts a number of cafes and bars alongside traditional seafood restaurants from which you can enjoy the fresh sea air and views along the beautiful, European Blue Flag sand and shingle beaches.
Transport in the area is great with regular buses and a direct rail link to London Victoria and Gatwick Airport.
Gerard 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.
Gerard Lodge’s manager, Gill, is on hand to support the Owners and keep the development in perfect shape. 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.
