Retirement Living at Osbourne Lodge

Retire in style by the sea in a luxury retirement living apartment

Buying a retirement property is an investment in enjoying your later years. It allows you to keep an independent lifestyle that will cater for your needs now and into the future, in your own purpose-built, secure apartment where you don’t need to lift a finger – only a glass of wine or a cup of tea!

Osbourne Lodge has lovely large apartments, built with older people in mind. Each one is a self-contained home with its own front door. But the development is also a great place to socialise, with a popular resident’s lounge and organised activities. Even better, the apartments are right in the centre of Bournemouth and a short distance from the seafront, making your dream of retiring by the sea a reality.

Bournemouth and its neighbouring seaside towns have some of the most breathtaking beaches in the UK, with lots of all-important facilities. Osbourne Lodge benefits from a bus stop right outside which takes residents to the seafront as well as to the other nearby locations. There is also on-site parking if you’d rather drive. Shops, restaurants and local amenities are a short walk.

Retiring in Bournemouth, Dorset

Bournemouth is often cited as one of the best places to live in the UK, and living by the sea is generally considered to have lots of health benefits.

But what can Bournemouth really offer? Well for a start, if you don’t want to feel like you’re retiring it provides an excellent lifestyle and a buzzy atmosphere that some of the more sleepy choices for retirement don’t.

There is a decent shopping centre of course, but more than that there are a variety of attractions including the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, The Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre which offers mainstream productions all year round, and some stunning National Trust places nearby including Kingston Lacy palace and Corfe Castle.

Osbourne Lodge itself is just minutes walk to the shopping centre and Central Gardens. There is a medical centre just across the road, a Co-op just around the corner, and a variety of restaurants within walking distance.

Bournemouth has lots to offer for over 60s, including a wide variety of clubs and social activities, exercise classes and volunteering organisations. The council website shows just a snapshot of what is available.
