Retiring in style in Gloucestershire
Siddington Park retirement village in Gloucestershire offers a fresh approach to retirement living – a selection of beautifully designed homes with thoughtful and practical touches set in landscaped grounds for people over 60 who want to live life to the full.
Siddington Park is a vibrant retirement community where you are always made welcome. Set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens on the outskirts of the thriving Roman market town of Cirencester, this enviable location is truly the capital of the Cotswolds.
At the heart of community is The Pavilion. This is the place for meeting with friends old and new over a midday coffee or hiring the private dining room for a special occasion with your family. It also houses the gym, wellbeing spa, dance studio and craft room. You can join other Rangeford residents in the lounge cinema for an evening film or out on a trip courtesy of the village transport. When you retire in Gloucestershire, there are a number of hidden gems you can visit to enjoy your retirement in style.
What can you do in Cirencester?
Cirencester is one of England’s finest market towns with its origins dating back to Roman times. Serving the wider communities, the town has an abundance of retail outlets and eateries as well as leisure facilities and parks and the Town Centre is just a short 1.5 mile journey away. The lovely Dobbies Garden Centre, town markets and Corn Hall offer some great retail therapy!
The Corundum Museum is a must-see visitor attraction, and it has one of the finest and most extensive Roman collections in the country. On the outskirts of Cirencester are the massive earthwork remains of one of the largest Roman Amphitheatres in Britain. Or you can enjoy an afternoon watching polo at Cirencester Polo Club, go to the park or take a dip in Cirencester’s outdoor swimming pool which has natural spring water heated to an average of 27 degrees during the summer months. For arts and craft lovers there is the new Brewery Arts which is a converted Victorian brewery which has exhibitions, artists’ workshops and a café and shop.
Where else can you visit when you retire in the Cotswolds?
With pale limestone buildings, beautiful rivers, and stunning Tudor architecture, it is easy to see why so many people come and make the move to retire in the Cotswolds. Cirencester has great transport links and the wider area has so much to offer. Below we highlight just some of the many lovely attractions right on the doorstep.
The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway
This is a heritage railway over 14 miles long in the beautiful Cotswolds. There are some really authentic Great Western Railway stations and well-stocked shops. There is a model railway coach and Discovery Coach at Winchcombe Station, whilst at Toddington there is a self-guided heritage trail, a children’s play area, a have-a-go signal box and a locomotive yard viewing area.
