Inchmarlo Retirement Village never stands still, we’re always planning developments and improvements. We’re one of the few retirement villages in the UK offering full continuing care, and we pride ourselves on being one step ahead of the rest, offering the best experiences for our homeowners to enjoy. The Sunday Times described Inchmarlo as ‘one of the first and still one of the best’ retirement villages in the UK. Life is for living at Inchmarlo, so here’s what the future holds.

Growing old is inevitable, living old is optional.


We wish to offer more choice at Inchmarlo, without losing the intimate sense of community that we have here. Inchmarlo has plans for just over one hundred new properties (one, two and three bedroom homes) in different styles. We realise that our home owners are unique individuals and your home should echo your tastes and reflect your personality. Repetitive, identical housing doesn’t fit the brief, so our new homes offer a mix of styles – opt for a bungalow, add a loft conversion for bedrooms or hobby rooms/studies, design a patio, invest in a conservatory, go detached, terraced, or how about a semi? We’ve also developed a 1.5 or 2.5 bedroom lay out, for those who desire a small room for perhaps a home study or office, for a grandchild’s nursery or a room for a carer. Some properties have their own gardens for green fingered homeowners, all other properties are surrounded by landscaped gardens and grounds, tended by Inchmarlo. Consider a future home, and a new lifestyle, at Inchmarlo.


Inchmarlo is one of the few retirement villages to boast a fully licensed bar, extensive gardens and grounds, a hair salon, and a raft of clubs are run and organised by homeowners – from the Dining Club to the Village Pub and Knitting Club, it’s important to the keep the mind and body active. Going forwards we have a vision for a Leisure Facility featuring a bar, bistro, masseuse area, lounge, conservatory, meetings rooms and hair salon. A lot of the spaces we envision are aimed at increasing the social aspects of life at Inchmarlo, spaces where the homeowners themselves can organise new activities, meetings and clubs. Hot desking and wifi will be available, meaning people can work and play, in a communal space.


We’ve always provided exceptional care at Inchmarlo, if and when it’s required. We’re proud of what we do so our future care plan is to carefully maintain the excellent care that we provide. Having said that, as people are living longer, we are experiencing an increased prevalence of dementia. We regularly care for those living with dementia, and this is naturally evolving as more and more people to come to us for those services. You, or your family member, is in safe and caring hands.


As you may already know we pride ourselves on the menus at Inchmarlo, and the freshly prepared dishes created by our Head Chef. Inchmarlo is all about the food! We have a Dining Club on site, Tasting evenings to plan our future menus, and Cheese and Wine nights. Homeowners are always welcome to visit Inchmarlo House to enjoy a meal and a drink, we can even collect you from your home. Homeowners Lunches gather monthly for those wish to meet up. Or we’re happy to deliver home cooked meals straight to your door. None of this is set to change, but our menus will always evolve and we’re always interested in new dining concepts and ideas. Homeowners can initiate clubs, bring new ideas to us, and suggest dishes for the whole community to experience. Life tastes good at Inchmarlo!
