Today’s over-55s are completely rewriting the rule-book, doing things that were unheard of a generation before them. From extreme fitness pursuits, to second careers, to globetrotting, this inspirational bunch are carving out amazing lives, using their new found time and freedom to do so.

So, why choose Brio? Our communities are great places for anyone wanting a great modern retirement, fuss free and fun.  In this list we look at the top reasons why our customers love our communities and what helps them make the most out of life.

Super social lives

From fitness classes, to beauty sessions, to days spent sightseeing, our customers have access to a busy social calendar. If you want to spend your days as busy as possible enjoying everything life has to offer, then Brio communities each have a schedule of events tailored by residents. Calendars are easy to access via our Brio app, meaning booking your place is simple.

Don’t forget each development boasts a bar and the tasty Slate & Grain Brasserie too!

Beautifully designed homes

We give our homeowners everything they want in a modern home – and nothing they don't. With big plans ahead of you, we know that our customers want more than just bricks and mortar, that’s why homes are perfectly planned out, with high specifications and spacious rooms that mean you can continue to entertain family and friends in your own home.

All mod cons

From superfast wifi, to Sky TV, smart security systems, and heating controlled via our app, our homes are very smart indeed. Brand new technology is integrated into every home as standard – and it’s all super easy to use.

Great locations

From the renowned Cotswolds, to Prince Charles’ new town of Poundbury, to urban London, to the Scottish coastline, our Brio communities are set amongst some of the UK’s most beautiful and desired locations – places perfect for you to carve out your new life.

Care if you need it

If our homeowners need care, there are trained colleagues on hand across our developments. From services such as booking an assisted bath via our app, through to establishing regular well being checks, or more formal medical care, it’s all available in a Brio home.

Caring for your family

We’re huge advocates for welcoming your family and friends to your Brio community and, if you don’t have room for your brood in your home, we also have hotel-quality guest suites on-site in our communities. Using our app, homeowners can book the suites to ensure that visiting relatives can immerse themselves here too.

 Easy to manage financials

A simple one off fee gives our homeowners access to every facet of life in a Brio home including daily social and leisure activities* like exercise classes, coffee mornings, wine tasting and bridge, to utilities*, to buildings insurance, to communal cleaning and landscaping. There are no hidden charges that you’ll need to pay to enjoy life in one of our homes.
