The village benefits from a vibrant community with a wide variety of activities taking place at the Birchington-on-Sea Village Centre. The Lodge itself is in a great location within walking distance to the sea and the local shops and amenities. Traditional cafes and ice cream parlours are also located in the village.

Local transport is excellent with regular busses around the village and surrounding areas and train services into London and across the country.

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. Careline integrated secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.

St Mary’s Lodge manager, Pam, is on hand throughout the day to support the residents and keep the development in perfect shape. Pam 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.
