Welcome to our house

Located in the historic town of Braintree, with picturesque countryside and beautiful villages, is Polly's Field Village, a community retirement village which is currently under construction and due for completion in early 2022. 

Polly's Field Village will have 99 apartments, with 62 for sale and 37 rental units all set in a stunning six acre site with a view of glorious farmland and Bocking Windmill, which was originally built in 1721. 

Our apartments have been designed to help you to remain independent but with the added knowledge that you have 24 hour support from our caring, professional and helpful staff, who can provide support with helping to wash, dress, medication, getting out of bed, as well as help with toileting and personal hygiene. We also provide help with things like laundry, cleaning, housework and shopping, all in the comfort of your own home.

Each apartment has its own front door, so you can come and go freely as you would in your own home, and we offer 39 one bedroom and 60 two bedroom apartments so that you can live together as a couple.

In your apartment you'll find a stylish kitchen with high quality worktops and units, offering you a level of independence that gives you the freedom to start the day at your own pace, or provide food and drinks to visiting friends and family.

Our apartments come unfurnished to allow you to bring your own favourite pieces of furniture and personal items to make it feel like home. They are all fitted with a wet room and either a balcony or patio so you can enjoy a breath of fresh air or while away the hours in the sunshine.

Polly's Field Village has been designed to allow our residents to make the most of later life and remain independent, and we offer a variety of activities and have a number of excellent facilities for you to enjoy including:

  • a gym where you can stay fit and healthy,
  • an on-site hairdressers and beauty salon where you can pamper yourself,
  • a wide variety of activities ranging from art classes to quiz nights,
  • a guest room for when you have visiting family and friends.

Conveniently situated, Polly's Field Village is just a short way from the centre of Braintree, where you'll be able to explore all the town has to offer. From shopping and leisure facilities, to beautiful public gardens, museums and heritage centres, there is something for everyone. 

For those who fancy getting out and about, the local countryside is a wonderful place to explore either walking or cycling where you can enjoy all the excellent views that Braintree has to offer.

Getting to the centre of Braintree and surrounding areas couldn't be easier, with regular bus services to local areas including Witham, Colchester, Chelmsford and Halstead. 

Parking spaces will be available, so if you bring your car and fancy a drive nearby, you'll find a lovely selection of pubs in the countryside where you can enjoy stunning views and delicious and traditional pub meals.

What our prospective residents say

I’m so excited at the prospect of moving to Polly’s Field Village. I’ve already reserved one of the apartments because I genuinely believe that this is what retirement living should be like. The super facilities, lots of opportunities to meet new friends and have good times and being able to enjoy staying independent. I’m sure it will do wonders for the community in this area.

Mrs D

Like so many others approaching retirement, we were looking for a retirement lifestyle with genuine independence, lots of activities and lively social opportunities. So hearing the enthusiastic way that Abbeyfield presented their vision for Polly’s Field Village, we felt it met all our hopes for our future. We were especially impressed with the way that Abbeyfield had ‘future proofed’ the levels of support as our needs develop. Now we can honestly say we are looking forward to our retirement.

Mr and Mrs B

For me, this feels like the right time to begin what I know will be a marvellous new life experience. I can’t wait to start enjoying everything about the village and I’ll be nearer to my family as well! January 2022 can’t come round quickly enough for me!
