Show more "Denham Garden Village is Anchor’s award-winning development of retirement apartments, houses and bungalows. Our location in the Buckinghamshire countryside offers the perfect balance of rural tranquillity with good road and rail access to London and the surrounding facilities. The shops in Denham Green are close by and the old village of Denham, with its excellent restaurants and public houses, is approximately a mile away.

However, you don’t have to travel that far for comfort and entertainment. On-site facilities include a health spa, café bar and village shop. The grounds incorporate 30 acres of private woodland, known as Nightingale Wood, which features purpose-built footpaths for the use of retirement community residents. The village centre includes indoor courtyards and atrium spaces that offer natural light among trees, where you can relax and enjoy the views all year round.

Whether you’re one of our younger or more elderly residents, you can combine the benefits of having an independent, active lifestyle with living in a community of like-minded people.

At Denham Garden Village we provide the peace of mind that comes with having on-site support and care available for those who need it. And with a GP surgery on-site you needn't go far for medical advice should you need it." Show less
