Services offered: Extra Care Housing

Petypher House at Orchard Gate is a brand new retirement development in Kingston Bagpuize, near Abingdon opened in the summer of 2016, offering luxurious one or two bedroom apartments for sale under shared ownership or to rent. The Orders of St John Care Trust have been appointed, following a rigorous selection process, to provide the onsite care services.

Kingston Bagpuize is a delightful village about 6 miles (10 km) west of Abingdon.

Kingston Bagpuize is derived from the village's original name Kingston plus the surname of Ralph de Bachepuz, a Norman nobleman from Bacquepuis in Normandy who aided William of Normandy in the Norman conquest of England in 1066. The village hosts many clubs and societies and has a post office, shops, village hall, tennis club and the Hinds Head, a classic English pub.

The 26 spacious one and two bedroomed apartments, built and managed by SoHa Housing, are available for rent or shared ownership.  Come and go as you please, safe in the knowledge that the friendly, professional and well-trained team are on hand to give you the support and reassurance you need to continue to live a fulfilling lifestyle in your own home.

When you decide to move to Petypher House, our Care team will discuss with you in detail what your individual needs are, so that a care plan can be put in place to give you just the support you require. Should your circumstances change, we will help you adjust your care plan accordingly - you just have to let us know.

Petypher House offers 24-hour emergency response and there are carers on site 24 hours a day.
