Your home

Downsizing is a big decision. With Mayfield you stay firmly in control, with complete freedom and independence to live the life you already enjoy. You buy and own your own home in a beautiful and secure environment, within a vibrant community of likeminded people. Your pets can move in with you, and your family and friends are welcome to visit at any time and enjoy the many leisure facilities.

Each apartment in one of our retirement villages is sold with a lease of up to 250 years. It is your home, held as your own asset, which you are free to sell at any stage on the open market, meaning you can enjoy the benefits of a continued investment in a property of your own. 

Your lifestyle

As a Mayfield homeowner you automatically become a member of The Mayfield Club, our onsite health and wellbeing centre. Whether you enjoy a swim, the fun of a group exercise class, a one-to-one personal training session in the gym or just relaxing by the pool, here you can stay healthy and fit all year round.

The Mayfield Club has something for everyone, including a swimming pool, gym, spa, café-bistro and village hall – all on your doorstep.

Peace of mind

If you should ever need extra help, our professional Mayfield Villages Care team are on hand to help with as little or as much as you need. From cleaning, laundry and shopping to personal care needs and medication support, you only pay for what you need.

With lots of activities and trips available, you can throw yourself into a busy social life or enjoy your own independence. You can be as involved or as private as you want to be.

What's included?

As a property owner at Mayfield Villages, you are welcome to enjoy full use of the Mayfield Club, including fitness and aqua classes, dine with us in the M Bar & Kitchen, and purchase home support services if and when you need them.

We collect a monthly management fee and a deferred management charge to cover all the ongoing costs of running the village and the expense of any major works.

These fees cover exterior maintenance of your home, building insurance, Mayfield Club membership, 24/7 security, village and grounds upkeep, and charges associated with the business such as staffing. It also helps to ensure that, when the time comes, we can cover the costs of structural repairs or improvements such as reroofing or resurfacing roads and pathways.
