Worthington Lodge is an exclusively designed development of 39 one and two bedroom Retirement apartments, constructed by Churchill Retirement Living, located in the picturesque Kent town of Hythe. The development is situated in an ideal position close to the town centre and local amenities. Hythe is a charming seaside town with its narrow streets lined by interesting historic buildings and a wide variety of shops including major retailers.
Running through the centre of the town, the Royal Military Canal, gives central Hythe much of its character as does the surrounding countryside, both providing many delightful walks.
The area offers a wealth of facilities for recreation. For those who enjoy the outdoors, Hythe is home to beautiful public gardens providing the perfect floral backdrop to sit and relax, with cricket, golf, bowls and lawn tennis all close by.
If you are interested in wildlife, historic houses or magnificent scenery, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park and Gardens and Brockhill Country Park have something for everyone. For those who prefer to sit back and relax indoors, the Folkestone and Hythe Operatic and Dramatic society perform several times a year at the Tower Theatre in nearby Shorncliffe.
With its own sandy beach, Hythe is on a broad bay of the English Channel, four miles from Folkestone and just 16 miles from Dover, making it ideal for those who enjoy taking trips to the near Continent.
Combine this with Hythe’s close proximity to the cathedral city of Canterbury, excellent transport links to Folkestone and Dover, as well as London via the M20 or a regular train service, Hythe is ideally located to enjoy the attractions and amenities the area has to offer.
For added security and peace of mind, this development benefits from having a Lodge Manager, who in the case of an emergency can be contacted via a personal pendant or from call points located within the building. During periods when the Lodge Manager is off duty, any emergencies are covered by the 24 hour Careline response system.
Worthington Lodge’s manager, Margaret, is on hand throughout the day to support the owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Margaret arranges 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.
Worthington 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.
Worthington Lodge requires at least one apartment resident to be over the age of 60 with any second resident over the age of 55. Each Apartment is completely self-contained with its own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it. When you fancy some company, you’ll find the Owners’ Lounge a popular and relaxed place to meet.
