About Richmond Villages
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 nearly 20 years Richmond Villages have been at the forefront of luxury retirement living. Having won numerous awards for architecture, landscaping and care, we are now seen as the benchmark for retirement villages in the UK. A totally fresh concept in retirement living, our socially active communities are for people who want to get the most from later life.
