Retirement living explained

It’s natural to have a lot of questions about retirement.

When can I retire? What is retirement? When can I access my pension?

After all, you have been planning for retirement since your first day of work.

But when it comes to retirement living, for many lucky retirees, this is a brand new concept. The biggest question we get asked is: “Is Retirement Living right for me?”

It’s understandable that you may have some questions and some uncertainty about what retirement living is and whether it is the right option for you. At Burghley Retirement Living, we believe retirement is all about having the freedom to enjoy the things you love the most.

Our retirement living villages are exclusively for the over 55s and are designed with you in mind. Burghley luxury retirement apartments have maintenance included so you can free up your time and lead an independent lifestyle, plus we provide a safe and secure environment providing peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

What Is Retirement Living?

Our retirement villages are built especially for “people over 55” who wish to live independently in a safe and comfortable environment.


When it comes to location, we know how important it is to find the right home in the right area. We have thoughtfully chosen excellent locations across our retirement living properties that give residents everything they need on their doorstep.

– Our Thornton-Cleveleys retirement living village is perfectly positioned by the famous Marsh Mill, which means that residents can nip out for a coffee in one of the many bustling cafes or enjoy a spot of shopping. Plus, the village is just a 15-minute walk from the seaside, perfect for strolls along the promenade and watching the waves; this retirement village really does have the best of both worlds.

– Our Derby retirement living village is nestled within the ready-made community of Kingsway in Derby. This charming development has the choice of one or two-bedroom apartments set within extensive landscaped grounds. The location is perfect for city life, in ten-minutes you can drive into Derby city centre with its huge range of high street stores, culture and restaurants.

If you prefer to stay at home, our retirement villages promote a luxury lifestyle, offering the opportunity to enjoy onsite social activities within a community of people of a similar age.

Enjoyment and security.

We believe retirement is about having the time and freedom to enjoy the things you love the most. All of our developments are designed exclusively for the over 55s. Your home gives you privacy when you want it, but a communal resident lounge opens up a whole new social life with like-minded neighbours when you wish.

Living in our retirement apartments means that you can say goodbye to maintenance. The communal upkeep (including the gardens and guttering) is taken care of as part of your service charge. We believe life is to enjoy and when everything is taken by us, you can forget about all those irritating, time-consuming jobs when you move in.

Our team will always be on hand as safety and security of paramount importance to us, plus during the week your House Manager will be around every day from 9am – 5pm if you have any questions or concerns.
