A peaceful, stunning place to live. It’s just marvellous.


Ramsgate Retirement Village

Situated in Ramsgate, a pristine coastal town that boasts one of the finest blue flag beaches on the coast, Ramsgate Retirement Village is the smallest of the three villages. It houses 61 face brick cottages, each with their own private garden.

Whilst residents of the Ramsgate Village enjoy a number of high quality on-site amenities, the village’s close proximity to the Margate Village means that residents get to enjoy all the facilities of the Margate Village too. Any sport, medical and cultural activities and services that are not available on-site in the Ramsgate Village are available at the Margate Village and the courtesy bus travels between each village daily.

Built in 1989 by the town board, it was officially acquired by HRV in 1995 and has flourished ever since.

Cottages and Flats

The Ramsgate Retirement Village has 1 and 2 bedroom cottages. All cottages are sold on the “Life Right” basis.  Residents are encouraged to develop gardens around their cottages. The Society employs a garden service to mow lawns and trim edges.
