Enterprise Retirement Living's villages offer the chance to live in luxurious and beautifully appointed properties and to enjoy friendships and interests that make for the ideal retirement.
Within easy reach of Ripon, The Red House offers plenty of opportunities for interaction and variety in a vibrant community that is full of activity, conversation and potential.
Set in a leafy and tranquil environment just over half a mile from Ripon’s shops, cafés, restaurants and stunning architecture, it boasts a packed programme of events to suit everyone. This month, residents can enjoy a talk on the Ghosts and Ghoulies of Ripon with Tony Hirst from Ripon Museum, and plans are already in place for a festive singalong with Dishforth Military Wives in December.
For those who value their independence, there’s no pressure to join activities but the option is there for those who value friendship and a sense of community; other social get-togethers include regular coffee mornings and cheese and wine afternoons, as well as events from local interest groups.
Made up of eight separate and characterful buildings, The Red House offers an extensive range of perfectly designed retirement properties, from individual cottages with private outside space to one- and two-bedroom apartments. All are built or renovated to the highest specifications with elegant interiors which means there are no worries about maintenance or DIY: you're simply free to enjoy your retirement.
The communal areas are ideal for meeting like-minded neighbours and facilities include the Fountains Restaurant, a lounge and a bar with large-screen TV. There’s also a drawing room, library and crafts room to enjoy, and The Red House even has its own hair and beauty salon and gym.
Lovers of the outdoors will relish the stunning landscaped gardens which include a number of spacious communal terraces, offering the chance for leisurely walks in the grounds and al fresco social gatherings.
Plus the cathedral city of Ripon is only a short walk away, a North Yorkshire gem steeped in history and home to magnificent historical buildings and long-observed traditions. With its impressive cathedral, fascinating museums and a bustling market square, there is plenty to entertain – plus there's a huge range of first-class visitor attractions in the surrounding Dales countryside.
Joining the friendly and sociable community at The Red House offers the chance to live the retirement you have hoped for, whether that is joining interest groups and clubs, exploring a bustling city, entertaining family and friends or simply enjoying some time to yourself.
