An urban retirement community, set in the heart of Bedminster, you can busy yourself from dawn to dusk. Inside this beautifully designed building there are stylish apartments, stunning roof gardens with breath-taking views, plus great places to eat, socialise and enjoy your favourite hobbies.

If you like to be busy, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in and around Monica Wills House. See the sights around Bristol’s waterfront, take in a museum or gallery and explore an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars and independent shops. Join the annual Balloon Fiesta rooftop barbeque with the best views of the night glow in this part of town. And for ventures further afield you’ll find excellent transport links right outside your door.

The four storey central atrium is truly dramatic. Flooded with natural light, the indoor street is the perfect place for getting together for a game of indoor boules or a neighbourly chat, all sheltered from the elements. In fairer weather unwind in the roof gardens and take in the stunning panoramic views. There’s no better way to see Bristol’s top landmarks such as the Clifton suspension bridge and the colourful hillside terraces of Totterdown.

If you’d like to try a new fitness routine there’s plenty to keep you active. Balance body and mind in Tai Chi classes or get moving and grooving to the rhythms of Zumba. There’s also a fully equipped fitness suite with specialist instructors to tailor a programme of gentle exercise that’s right for you.

Sit out on your balcony and soak up the sunshine. On the upper floors, our modern purpose-built apartments have magnificent views across the city and countryside beyond. Your apartment is your space to make your own. With one and two bedroom flats available to buy or rent, you can have everything just as you like it. And pets are welcome too.
