Now’s your time – time do all those things you've been putting off. Time to get inspired and live life to the full. Where better to do this than a place that’s built around you – where luxurious facilities are combined with care and support, giving you the chance to live your very best life.

A community to call your own

Being with others gives life a little extra colour. Each of our Brio developments are communities in their own right, but we've also taken great care to choose locations where you'll feel a part of the wider community.

That means shops, beautiful green spaces, places to eat and drink, and health services such as GP surgeries and pharmacies can all be found close by.

Brio is a proud member of the Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO) - the leading body representing the retirement community sector, ensuring the highest standards in retirement living, so you can rest assured that we're committed to you and your needs.

Homes that are built around you

Brio homes meet a wide range of needs and budgets, and each community has a selection of bungalows or cottages and apartments. All contain a wide range of features and smart technology, designed to make life easier for you.

Every property has its own dedicated control system, with access to features such as temperature control and energy monitoring. It also enables direct communication to on-site staff, as well as external links to friends and family. Using the latest in-home technology, homeowners will even be able to connect this system to their own smart devices if they choose.

Whether you prefer home to be by the coast, in the country, or near the city, our village locations bring out the best of the local area. The villages have been carefully designed to complement their unique surroundings, so that our communities add to the existing local character. Whether this means matching the local heritage of Northern Scotland at Chapelton, taking inspiration from the Cotwolds’ rural setting in Stow-on-the Wold, or reflecting the surrounding architecture in Hackbridge, we consider local context extensively when planning our communities.

Our fitness studios and Wellness Suite

All our villages have their own fitness studios and a dedicated fitness instructor to help you keep fit and mobile. With regular fitness activities booked in every week, you’re sure to find a form of exercise that suits you. If you’d prefer to be out in the fresh air, you’ll find exercise trails in each of our villages, set within beautifully landscaped settings.

Beechwood Park also has a luxury Wellness Suite and pool on-site – perfect for unwinding, relaxing and recharging.

The great outdoors, on your doorstep

Happiness and fulfilment doesn’t end at the front door of a home. At every one of our villages, you’ll find beautiful landscaped gardens, private outdoor spaces and beautiful community features.

Whatever you love to do, and at whatever pace you choose to do it, you can enjoy outdoor living to its fullest at a Brio village. Energise green fingers in private gardens, enjoy country walks along dedicated exercise trails, take part in outdoor events with your friends, or simply dine al fresco on the patio or balcony.

Our Fees Explained

We’ve made our fee structure as clear as possible, so you know exactly what you’ll be paying when you move to a Brio village. Everything included in your monthly fee is fully itemised. We will never ask you to pay unexplained charges or hidden fees.

One simple monthly fee

We combine your costs into a pre-agreed monthly fee to keep things simple for you. It also means you don't have to worry about unexpected bills. Your fee covers:

  • Maintenance to the exterior of your home.
  • Grounds and gardens maintenance.
  • Regular cleaning and maintenance to the homeowners' club lounge, fitness or wellness suite and the community Hub – so they’re kept to the exceptionally high standards you’d expect and enjoy.
  • Fire and call systems maintenance.
  • Communal broadband/Wi-Fi.
  • Utility costs for the communal areas.

Your monthly fee also covers many of the things that make living in a luxury Brio village so special – from our events, to essentials like broadband in the communal areas and support from our on-site team seven days a week.

Please note, the fee does not cover your own private use of heating, electricity and hot and cold water supply.

Keeping your costs low

We calculate our costs on a not-for-profit basis, which allows us to pass the costs of providing the services you need on, without any extra mark-up.

We also open our on-site Slate & Grain brasserie and bar to the general public. While you enjoy discounted prices on all food and drink, non-homeowners pay full-price, which generates extra income. We use this to offset our overall weekly costs and subsidise your weekly fee.

If you choose to sell your home

A decision to sell means a Deferred Management Fee (DMF) of up to 15% of the property value will be required, as well as an Estate Agency Fee of 1% of the sale price achieved, and an Administration Fee of at least £500 for our English Retirement Communities.

In Scotland, instead a Sinking Fund applies of up to 10% of the property value. Please speak to the local Retirement Living Advisor for further information.
