The Fairways

A retirement village providing a new way of life for people over 55.

1. Design and Build

The Fairways village is a dynamic community of 75 individually crafted custom-built apartments in a number of different styles. You can choose from one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as two storey duplexes. The design needed to make the most of the views and available space whilst also being appropriate for the target audience and incorporating hotel style facilities.

We’ve been meticulous about every single detail, right from the initial plans through to the fixtures and fittings, in order to create unique dwellings that are a pleasure to live in. We have also carefully planned all the facilities and amenities to create a vibrant and supportive community. By taking care of every aspect of The Fairways, we provide the space and freedom to live as independently as the residents may like.

2. Facilities

The village was designed by KWL Architects centred around a large atrium designed as an unheated outdoor space with cafe seating, indoor bowls and chess so residents can enjoy leisure activities in a covered space - the perfect setting for residents to meet up with friends. The large 40 seat restaurant is housed in the central hub along with a shop and beauty salon while the other communal facilities are all accessed via the atrium.

The Young At Heart Wellness Spa has a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and a well-equipped gym. Other facilities within the village include a snooker room, library, beauty salon, cinema room, shop, activities room, comfy residents lounge and the Restaurant Café. Designed to feel like a boutique hotel, this village will ensure that life begins at 55.

3. Location

Adjacent to Chippenham Golf Club the location provides a tranquil environment with beautiful views over the golf course to the west of the development with the picturesque market town of Chippenham just a few miles away. The site 4 acre consisted of the club house that needed to be demolished and re-built on the eastern edge of the golf course.
