Show more "If you are over 60 (or 55 in special circumstances), live in Milton Keynes or have a local connection, and would like to apply for a home at Shenley Wood Retirement Village, please call the Village Team on 01908 413000.

There are 300 apartments at Shenley Wood Village. Homes at the village are available for purchase, shared ownership and rent. All homes within the village are designed to make life easier for residents, even if your mobility is limited.

Shenley Wood Village can provide you with a fulfilling lifestyle as an active and valued member of a vibrant local community. It provides independent living, social opportunities and an enriching lifestyle in later life. You can pick up old pastimes and try new hobbies, safe in the knowledge that you are surrounded by friends and neighbours.

We have an on-site Care Team who can help you live independently, if you need a little extra support now or in the future. This may range from a simple drop-in visit to assist with meal preparation or housework up to help with more significant care needs, including dementia. Currently, up to 20 per cent of residents at Shenley Wood Village receive support from our Care Team." Show less
