Your home at Elizabeth House offers great comfort and security, allowing you to enjoy an independent and social retirement. Away from the privacy of your apartment, Elizabeth House features a selection of social areas, including the homeowners lounge and gardens.

When your friends and family wish to visit, they too can enjoy comfort and privacy in the guest suite (£25 per night - subject to availability).
Stony Stratford is a small market town with a big history alongside bags of style, charm and character making it the perfect location for your new home. This friendly and flourishing community dates back to Roman times and has had a market charter since 1194. Today there’s a good selection of local amenities in Stony Stratford including shops, a doctor, dentist, post office and pharmacy all a short walk from home.
You can also visit the regular market and farmers’ market, plus there’s the rare privilege of free parking. The inns and restaurants are numerous and come with some excellent stories including many Dick Turpin tales and claiming the origin of the phrase “cock and bull story”. Alternatively head into Milton Keynes, just over 5 miles away by road from Elizabeth House. One of the original new towns, Milton Keynes is a thriving centre for culture with a first-class theatre, galleries and museums plus plenty of choices for shopping and eating out.
If you enjoy spending time in the fresh air, the River Great Ouse and the Ouse Valley Park meander all around Stony Stratford offering miles of riverside walks and picturesque spots to watch the world go by. Step back in time with an interesting day out at Bletchley Park, the home of the World War II Enigma machines and the codebreakers. Once one of the best kept secrets in the country, Bletchley Park is now sharing its enthralling story with visitors. Alternatively, visit Stowe Gardens, about 10 miles away, to admire the scale and grandeur of this home, once owned by one of the most powerful families in Georgian England.
There is shopping, history, entertainment and leisure in the idyllic market town of Buckingham less than 9 miles away; or try your luck at the recently refurbished Towcester Racecourse where both horse and greyhound racing is offered.
