Granny’s getting a swimming pool

Granny’s getting a swimming pool

From taking a dip in the swimming pool ‒ set to open in spring 2019 ‒ to visiting the world’s largest ice cream shop, right on your doorstep, at Inspired Gifford Lea, in Tattenhall, Cheshire, you can make the most of your time with the family.


Research shows that nurturing your relationship with your grandchildren is good for you  and also for them.

Half of grandparents who provide regular care for their grandchildren say spending time with them keeps them physically and mentally active, according to a YouGov poll for the charity Age UK. And almost two-fifths (38%) of those surveyed revealed it gave them a sense of purpose, while 14% admitted it stopped them from feeling lonely.

Meanwhile, a study of more than 1,500 children by the University of Oxford has shown that those with a high level of grandparental involvement had fewer emotional and behavioural problems.

A place to savour every moment

Thanks to thoughtful design, later living village Gifford Lea, near Chester, gives you the chance to enjoy every moment with your grandchildren.

The first phase of the retirement community, owned by Inspired Villages, saw the launch of 48 apartments and Eric’s Lounge, a social hub and a great place to grab a hot chocolate! Next spring will see the eagerly-awaited opening of a wellness centre featuring a spa, swimming pool and gym, and also the opening of a brasserie restaurant, garden room, library, beauty salon and a further 56 apartments.

Each stylish and comfortable home features widened doorways and open-plan living areas that help to create a sense of space and provide plenty of room for playing games with little ones. The village is also within easy reach of some of the region's best tourist attractions, including The Ice Cream Farm, in Tattenhall.


James Cobb, Sales and Marketing Director of Inspired Villages, says: “Gifford Lea has been built with residents and their visiting families in mind. The sound of children laughing and playing brightens up the whole community, and our residents’ families are always welcome to make use of our facilities and explore the grounds together.”

One and two-bedroom apartments start from just £185,250.
