Captain Webb’s

A great place to retire, a great place to live.


“I have seen many properties rented by private landlords and local lettings agents, but I have to say, the standard of these properties and the amenities are the best I have ever seen.”

Captain Webb’s offers a safe and friendly gated community of very large, airy 1 and 2 bedroom apartments for over 55s. Set in lush grounds with a parking space for each unit. Onsite there are two friendly wardens and a helpful live-in maintenance man.

The development consists of thirty three mostly 2 bedroom apartments which are a mix of rental and owner occupied. Almost all units are accessible by lift and whilst we currently provide no outside care, some residents have carers who visit. All we ask is that all our tenants respect the others in the community and continue to keep it a friendly environment to live in.

The communal room gives residents their own central meeting area and regularly hosts drinks parties, tea parties and is a good place to sneak off and watch the football or motor racing with like minded friends.

One thing we absolutely don’t do is charge owners a fee when they decide to sell. We believe this is an underhand practice some others get involved in – not us. Your flat is your investment. Period. Sell it through any agent you want (though we may be interested in buying it back if you ask).

Maintenance and ground rent currently runs at about £1,100 per apartment. Whilst this may seem expensive, most retirement villages charge a lot more and may have hidden costs when you sell. We don’t have hidden costs and keep everything simple and affordable.

Properties at Webbs rarely become available, when people move in they tend to stay. However, If you would like to look at Captain Webb’s and perhaps put your name on the waiting list for a property here, please call us on 01304 210332 or email

We like Captain Webb’s so much we have our offices here, but don’t take our word for it, click images below to look at some recent testimonials.

Everything is kept affordable with rents ranging from £485pcm to £600pcm and purchase prices ranging from £90k to £140k. We’ll do part exchange on your existing home and part-buy/rent or shared ownership schemes. Just contact us.
