Within Halstead and the local area there is an abundance of leisure activities to choose from and within the growing friendly community at Priory Hall there is the added benefit of participating in regular social occasions if you desire.
The elegantly furnished residents lounge and orangery is the hub of the retirement village hosting various social activities and events and is also available as an area just to sit and relax with friends and family. There is plenty of comfortable seating and a fully equipped kitchen for making refreshments.
For those looking for a little peace there is the Library area with a growing stock of bestsellers and for the summer months, the orangery has two sets of French doors that lead out on to a generous terrace with views of the beautifully landscaped gardens and of the green fields beyond that lead down to the river Colne that passes through Halstead. Patio tables and chairs with granite benches make this a popular destination when the sun shines. Also proving popular with residents is the opulently furnished guest suite available for booking for visiting family and friends.
There is plenty of parking available at Priory Hall but for those that rely on public transport there are bus stops immediately outside the entrance with excellent services to Colchester, Sudbury, Braintree and Chelmsford and of course to Halstead High Street and back !
For me it has been a good move and I have made many new friends. An ideal and safe environment for retirement.
