Marjorie Moss, a new resident at Grove Place in Romsey, likes nothing better than taking an early morning swim in the private heated pool. A fit 84 year old, having been selected for olympic training at a mere 11 years of age, Marjorie finds the spa and leisure facilities just one of the many benefits of moving into her bungalow at this award-winning retirement village.
“I am going for everything here,” comments former head teacher Marjorie, “ I have joined a card group, like the flower arranging, enjoy film nights and rarely miss Sunday lunch in the restaurant.”
She chose a one bedroom bungalow and since moving in at the end of last year, has established a new circle of friends, which she regularly spends time with in the Grade 1 listed Manor House. This Elizabethan mansion, which is located in the centre of the village and just a couple of minutes stroll from Marjorie’s bungalow, is where many of the impressive facilities are located; billiard room, library, film and TV room, elegant sitting rooms with a help yourself coffee and tea station, meeting rooms for crafts and pastimes, a chef-run restaurant and cosy honesty bar.
Adjacent to the mansion is the brand new purpose built health and leisure centre with Marjorie’s regular haunt, the indoor heated 15 x 5 metre swimming pool, along with relaxing jacuzzi, fully equipped gym, hair salon, treatment room and registered nurse run care services.
There are still a few 1 bedroom bungalows and 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments available ranging from £180,000-£499,000. All the properties are linked to an in-house 24 hour care team, who will provide assistance at the push of a button.
