Perfectly complementing this wonderful apartment are two storage cupboards which are located in the hallway.

Sapphire Lodge is a stylish development of 30 one and two bedroom retirement apartments, situated on Christchurch Close in the town of Nailsea.

Nailsea is a thriving market town, which has a busy town centre, excellent restaurants, cafes, pubs and free parking. Renowned in the 18th and 19th centuries as a substantial producer of glassware due to the abundance of coal in the area, Nailsea is famous for its coloured glass, notably for its Bristol blue glass, from which Sapphire Lodge takes its name. This was and still is highly sought after by collectors around the World.

Sapphire Lodge is ideally placed for local shops with the Crown Glass shopping centre and all local amenities just a short walk away. Within the shopping centre there is a Waitrose supermarket as well as a wide variety of traditional and independent stores and high street chains.  There is a Tuesday market and a busy Farmers and Craft market every third Saturday in the month.  The town has a wide variety of clubs and activities including a programme of workshops and exhibitions at The Blue Room, Nailsea’s community art and craft gallery.  It also has a busy calendar of events with its Carnival Week with processions of floats around the town, twice yearly flower shows and annual fetes organised by each school in the area.  There are a number of parks and leisure facilities in Nailsea and just a few minutes drive from the town centre is Backwell Lane nature reserve which is the perfect location for country walks and family picnics.

Nailsea is located just 8 miles from the centre of Bristol, a city which boasts some of the finest art galleries and theatres in Britain where you can enjoy everything from world class art collections to major west end productions.  The city also has numerous attractions from the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge to the renowned Bristol Zoo, balloon and art festivals, regattas and food fairs.  There is something for everyone.

Nailsea has excellent transport links and can be reached easily by both car and by train from Blackwell Railway station and it is only six miles to Bristol International Airport.  Easy access to both the centre of Bristol, the Bristol Channel, the beautiful North Somerset countryside and Mendip Hills make Nailsea the ideal retirement location.

Sapphire  Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront.  The apartment has an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. A Careline integrated intruder alarm, secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind. 

Sapphire Lodge’s manager, Lin is on hand throughout the day to support the owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Lin arranges many regular events in the Owners’ Lounge from coffee mornings to games afternoons. For any visiting guests, the furnished twin Guest Suite is perfect and available for just £15 per night for 1 visitor and £20 (£10 each) for 2 visitors. The same excellent value is available across more than 150 Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK. 

Sapphire Lodge is managed by the award winning Millstream Management Services, working closely with Churchill Retirement Living and Stratton & King to maintain the highest standards of maintenance and service for every lodge and owner. 

Sapphire Lodge requires at least one apartment resident to be over the age of 60 with any second resident over the age of 55. Each Apartment is completely self-contained with its own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it.
