Galliard Homes Limited

Introducing Shiplake Meadows in Partnership with Probitas Developments


Joining forces with Probitas Developments and O’Shea, Galliard Homes are pleased to introduce Shiplake Meadows, a brand-new retirement village located in Lower Shiplake. Setting new standards for retirement living, Shiplake Meadows will encourage residents to enjoy ‘life your way’. 

Situated less than two miles from Henley-on-Thames, Shiplake Meadows promises to deliver a community-orientated retirement village with best-in-class service providers and highly-specified apartmentspenthouses and cottages.

The Village

Comprising 65 new two and three bedroom homes set amidst the breathtaking countryside, the village has been designed with local architectural character in mind, ensuring that each apartment, penthouse or cottage is in keeping with that of the local area, complete with timber cladding and beautifully landscaped gardens. Encompassing over six acres of grounds, Shiplake Meadows will boast an abundance of green space, including an orchard and a community vegetable garden which residents will enjoy being a part of.

Homes will be built to accommodate any future changes to the mobility needs of residents, and many homes will enjoy the use of a study room which can serve as an additional bedroom for friends, family or a carer. A dedicated parking space will come as standard to each property, enabled for a future EV charging facility, whilst some will benefit from multiple car parking spaces. Pets will be welcome (subject to terms) at Shiplake Meadows, ensuring that residents can move in with their trusted companions to continue to enjoy their retirement years.

The Lifestyle

At the core of Shiplake Meadows will be The Clubhouse, a community hub for the village to enjoy wellness facilities, relax in the lounge bar and terrace or eat at the on-site bistro, served by local favourites, Pavilion Foods.

Wellness facilities will be provided by Physiolistic, industry professionals who offer a one-stop-shop for health care services. Residents will enjoy participating in Pilates, group exercise classes or one-to-one physiotherapy in the dedicated fitness suite.

Serving up a delicious menu made up of locally-sourced ingredients, Pavilion Foods will bring its award-winning skills to Shiplake Meadows, ensuring residents have the opportunity to dine with neighbours, family or friends whenever suits them. Complimentary coffee and afternoon tea will be available to residents to enjoy in the Clubhouse lounge or on the al-fresco sun terrace alongside like-minded residents or quietly with a good book.

Residents will benefit from care and support, scaled to their needs, provided by Home Instead, CQC-registered home care providers. Whether it be a friendly face to offer companionship on a visit to the local town or more intimate care where required, Home Instead will be on hand to support residents with their tailored care. 

A concierge service will be on-hand to assist residents with their every need, from organising transport to the local town to facilitating any visitors that residents may have. 

The Location

Surrounded by South Oxfordshire’s spectacular landscape, Lower Shiplake is a town just minutes from the more well-known and quintessentially British setting of Henley-on-Thames. Set within The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the River Thames, residents of Shiplake Meadows will relish the tranquility that retirement living in this stunning pocket of England will provide. 

Easily accessible by road via the M4 and M40, Lower Shiplake is well served by the UK motorway network and also benefits from straightforward rail connectivity. Nearby Twyford station links passengers to Reading, London and Heathrow with ease thanks to brand-new Elizabeth line services, which offer high-speed, door-to-door journeys for residents and their families alike.

A 10 minute stroll from Shiplake Meadows and residents will find themselves in the serene setting of Henley-on-Thames, a world-famous market town known for its annual regatta and music festival. Residents will enjoy walks along the river, long lunches overlooking the activity on the water and shopping in the independent boutiques in the area.
