Cirencester is like a living film-set with movies including Doctor Dolittle (1966), Stardust (2007), War Horse (2011), and TV shows such as Poirot having been filmed there. And it’s easy to see why. Cirencester is full of charm, beauty and history, which aside from making it a great film location makes it the perfect place to live a fulfilling and active retirement, with plenty of amenities and activities to enjoy from your doorstep.
Known as the capital of the Cotswolds because it lies at the heart of this beautiful and quintessentially English district, Cirencester’s bustling and handsome streets are home to a growing number of independent shops, galleries and seriously good restaurants, pubs and cafés, with the likes of Here Made by Bob Restaurant putting Cirencester on the UK’s foodie map.
Dating back to Roman times, Cirencester was the second largest town in England after London in the fourth century and its rich Roman past is still much in evidence in parts of the town, including The Corinium Museum, a treasure trove of history with a collection of jaw-dropping Roman mosaics.
Just outside the town you can still stroll around the undulating remains of the Roman amphitheatre, now maintained by English Heritage and free to enter. Anyone wanting a more vigorous walk can head for Cirencester Park, home to the Earl of Bathurst, which is close to the town centre.
Over 60s thinking about retiring to Cirencester should consider Siddington Park, which is currently under construction and seeing big investment and is set to open to its first residents in Spring 2022.
The development is on the outskirts of Cirencester and will have 123 contemporary one, two and three bed apartments, support services and state-of-the art communal facilities, which will rival those of a five-star hotel.
The Pavilion Bistro, Bar and Lounge with outdoor terrace will form a social hub for residents, family and friends, while other facilities will include an onsite pool, gym and yoga/dance studio, cinema room, hair salon, and guest suite for any family or visitors that wish to stay overnight while enjoying their own space. Wellbeing services will be available at the village spa complete with swimming pool, hydro pool, relaxation area, sauna, steam room and treatment rooms.
Residents will also have access to a myriad of amenities in Cirencester, including a doctor’s surgery, dentist, supermarkets and hairdresser. Lying at the intersection of four A roads, allows fairly quick access to the M4 and M5 – handy for trips to the southwest or London.
Siddington Park’s properties start from £299,950, and the showhome is now open for in person visits. Get in touch on 0800 1357420 to find out more or visit www.rangefordvillages.co.uk to make an appointment for a tour.
The recent announcement by Boris has been described as ‘risky’, ‘controversial’ and ‘manifesto-shredding’, but it is absolutely essential if we are to rebuild our NHS and boost social care funding post-Covid.
