Who we are
Nantwich is a delightful discovery for those who don’t already know it. One of Cheshire’s oldest settlements, its distinctive Tudor architecture, set alongside the river Weaver, makes it one of the prettiest towns in England.
It has proven to be a great location for a retirement community. We’re just half a mile from the town centre while only fifteen minutes from the M6, half an hour from Chester and the Potteries and an hour from Manchester and Liverpool. Chester, Congleton, Crewe, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Middlewich, and Northwich are also on the doorstep.
For over 20 years Richmond have been at the forefront of luxury retirement living. We’re proud that we attract the best people and even prouder of how long they stay with us. Having won numerous awards for architecture, landscaping, and care, we are now the benchmark for retirement villages in the UK. A totally fresh concept in retirement living, we ensure our residents retain as much independence and choice as possible while helping retain their ‘zest for life’.
