Prestigious Retirement Communities & Comfortable

Living In Sussex

Danny House in one of England’s great country houses and prestigious retirement properties. Nestled at the foot of the South Downs within the National Park, this retirement home offers the best of all worlds – gracious retirement accommodation combined with all modern comforts, but without the stress of everyday life, for carefree senior living.

This retirement home is within walking distance of Hurstpierpoint (1 mile), which offers a good selection of shopping facilities, and the train station at Hassocks is just 1.5 miles, offering a 10 minute journey to Brighton, or into London in under one hour. There is also a very good care home nearby – St Georges Park, Ditchling.

To live in a fully serviced retirement apartment at Danny means being able to forget about the everyday worries of running a house, as this is done for you. The kitchen is in the hands of two well-qualified cooks, and excellent breakfast, lunch and supper are provided every day. Your apartment is regularly cleaned and maintained.

In summer, there are large gardens at your disposal. If you are a keen gardener, there is plenty of scope for you to go on exercising your skills, whether in the walled garden or perhaps tending a vegetable plot. If you prefer just to take it easy out of doors, there is plenty of shade. There is also a croquet lawn, grass tennis court, ponds for fishing, farm animals.

The retirement estate lies off the road from Hurstpierpoint to Hassocks, and is only eight miles from Brighton. If you have no car, we provide transport to take you shopping once a week, to the nearby medical centres and to cultural events in Brighton.

Full Maintenance with No Extra Charges

The Great Hall is sometimes made available to charities for concerts and lectures; which residents can attend at no charge. Many other Danny House activities take part in the Great Hall including the Book Club, exercise class, dance class and Holy Communion. You are, of course, free to furnish your retirement apartment with all your own belongings. Your apartment includes full maintenance with no additional service charges.

There is a guest-room for the use of residents’ friends and relations. A charge is made for this, and for any guest meals, which appears on your monthly account.

What next? The first thing is probably to come and have a look around to see it for yourself. There are no other formalities, except that we do need to know that you are capable of looking after yourself. However, it is possible for you to bring external carers to assist you in your own apartment. Why not give Richard a call on 01273 83 30 00 for more details.
