    resale problems associated with traditional retirement living.

Warm, safe and private

As lovely to look at as some big old houses are, they can be less fun to live in, heat or maintain. Ashridge is a home that is purpose built, beautifully appointed and fit for purpose. All apartments have an ensuite wetroom and your own private lounge with large windows, flooding the rooms with natural light and making the panoramic views easy to enjoy. Most have their own balcony, enabling you the freedom to enjoy a wake up coffee or an afternoon gin and tonic, with a breath of fresh air.

Keeping you connected

Ashridge has an enviable location close to Welwyn Garden City’s mainline train station and the town centre. The town offers shopping to suit all. Its John Lewis Department store can be a ‘one stop shop’, but if you venture out, it still has specialist independent shops.

As for getting there, don’t worry about ordering a taxi, our vehicles are available for you to book for these short trips out (reassuringly driven by a fully qualified staff member you know and who knows you).

As convenient as our town centre location is, we are also just a 10-minute car ride from the countryside for those who enjoy, walking, bird watching, golf or the lure of a country pub.

‘Living at Ashridge means your energy is kept for the fun bits of life.’

When not out and about, Ashridge is your safe haven. The courtyard garden is secure from strangers, with ample places to sit in the sun to read or to chat with friends (old and new). Depending on the apartment balcony you choose, the only sounds other than the birds is will be the primary school children playing in the distance.

Wi-Fi in every inch of the building means you can always connected. World news, online shopping and family wherever they live in the world (and whatever is happening in it) are a touch of a button away.
