The facility promises an unexpected take on retirement living, with a new discount offer potentially saving customers over £10,000.

Elle Gower, retirement living advisor at Beechwood Park, said: "We’re really keen to show people of Stow-on-the-Wold what a wonderful place our development is.

"It’s hard to envisage how fabulous Beechwood Park is without seeing it with your own eyes, and those who already live here admit they didn't appreciate how wonderful it is until they set foot inside!"

In addition to the homes, the facility also boasts landscaped gardens, a fitness suite, a contemporary wellness suite, a hobby room, a roof terrace, an exercise trail and the popular on-site Slate & Grain brasserie.

"Beechwood Park isn’t about traditional retirement properties; it’s about embracing life and living it to the full," Ms Gower added.

Organizers have encouraged visitors to bring friends and family to join the tours.

Slots can be booked by phone, with free refreshments provided.

Sales and marketing manager at Brio Retirement Living, Jess Nicoll, spoke of the distinct advantages of Beechwood’s location.

She said: "Beechwood Park is a fabulous place to enjoy modern retirement as it should be, and what better place to do that than the picturesque Cotswold village of Stow-on-the-Wold.

"We want to open our doors so that we can show guests just how wonderful our homes and community are.
