In the UK today there are nearly 12 million people over the age of 65, of which 5.4 million are over the age of 75.


Over the next two decades, the population aged 65 and over is expected to reach 18 million.

Despite an ageing population that is growing fast, there is still a significant lack of appropriate housing being developed that addresses the needs and wants of older people, especially those over 75 who have increasing care needs. Retirement communities help meet that demand whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle and minimising loneliness.


ERL is an award-winning retirement village developer. We own and run our villages, meaning that we have a long-term interest. We are a privately owned SME based near Cambridge but operating nationally, dedicated, and committed to the retirement living sector.


Residents benefit from a wide range of facilities on the doorstep, a busy social calendar, reassurance provided by on site 24/7 staff, and support if or when necessary.

Independent living


Each of our retirement properties provide independence and privacy. Specifically designed for comfort, ease and safety, with high-quality specifications throughout, each property makes life as effortless and enjoyable as possible, whilst reducing loneliness.


The benefits of living within a community of likeminded people has never been more apparent than during the COVID crisis. Residents within our communities in Ripon and Chester have benefited enormously from the companionship and support of staff and friends, even if socially distanced.
