At Richmond Villages, luxury comes as standard. We offer unrivalled facilities to make your life as easy and enjoyable as possible and whilst they vary from village to village, to compare the comforts of a Richmond Village with those of a luxury country hotel would not be far from the truth.
At Richmond Villages we understand how important beautiful gardens are. In recent years our dedicated gardeners have won many gardening awards and the results speak for themselves. Each village has its own architectural style, often a reflection of the local style and properties are designed so that the beautiful gardens can be appreciated from inside as well as outside.
Good food is very high on the agenda at all our villages as are the stylish interiors of our restaurants and public lounges. Most villages also have a café, a shop, a hairdressing salon and library and IT areas and every village has its own fleet of vehicles and full time drivers available for individual use and for group excursions.
Facilities at each village vary, but can include:
Wellness Spa & Gym*
A facility to compete with the top hotels, the Richmond Spa’s are a haven for relaxation and pampering. Why not enjoy a relaxing massage or beauty treatment by one of our qualified beauticians? For the more energetic is the purpose designed gym and exercise studio with on-site personal trainers available for help and motivation.
The swimming pool is not just a great place to exercise but also to relax, either by the pool or by enjoying the jacuzzi, sauna or steam room.
Restaurant & Bar
Open 7 days a week, the restaurants are a focal point of the village. Whether it is lunchtime or a special occasion, there is always a lovely atmosphere from within our restaurants. All our villages are licensed, with most having a bar area to enjoy prior or post meal drinks.
For both the experienced or first time bowler, our bowling greens are the perfect place to meet up with friends, either for a game or simply to watch and enjoy.
Library & IT Suite*
There’s nothing better than a good book and a Richmond library has plenty of them for you to choose from. What’s more, a number of our villages are the location for the local council mobile library. If you have never viewed the world wide web, or had the courage to use a computer, then now’s the time. With a little encouragement and training from our activity organisers you can soon become computer literate.
Arts & Crafts Room
If you're feeling creative, then our arts & crafts room is for you. Whether you wish to paint your next masterpiece or just wish to make a birthday card, our arts and crafts room will have what you need.
You can always look your best by visiting our fully equipped hair salon.
Village Vehicles and Driver
Richmond provides a fleet of vehicles and full time drivers with regular shopping trips and outings to local places of interest. Ideal for people who no longer drive or who prefer not to.
Who doesn’t love a great garden? And when someone else does all the hard work, it is only right that you sit and enjoy them! Our gardeners work tirelessly to ensure you have lovely outdoor spaces to enjoy. A testament to our gardeners is that all of our villages have won awards for their gardens.
Café and Shop
Our Village cafés are always a great place to catch up with friends over a coffee. Our Village shops are not going to compete with the local supermarkets, but do stock most of the essentials.
