“My apartment has far reaching views to the Cleveland Hills and I’ve enjoyed watching the wildlife from my window. The apartment is large enough for me to continue my hobbies and have a craft come office room"

Middleton Hall is recognised by The Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO), the main body representing the Integrated Retirement Community (IRC) sector in the UK, as an Approved Operator under the ARCO Consumer Code in relation to our independent living properties at Middleton Woods and The Waterside. We seek to apply this code across the entire retirement village.

As an IRC, people can enjoy living in their own home linked to wide-ranging facilities with lifestyle and wellbeing opportunities, have priority for waiting lists at our care services if needed and benefit from valued connections to the wider community close by.
