Welcome to our website. Sevenoaks Place and Lambarde Cottages provide comfortable, affordable accommodation for people of retirement age who wish to retain their independence and yet be part of a small, friendly and supportive community.
We have two sets of properties available: Sevenoaks Place, self-contained flats in Grade II* listed ragstone buildings, located in the upper High Street of Sevenoaks, and Lambarde Cottages, nineteenth-century single-storey terraced cottages in the village of Weald.
Each apartment or cottage contains a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom with bath and/or shower.
Sevenoaks Place and Lambarde Cottages are part of the Sevenoaks Almshouse Charity which has been in existence for almost 600 years. It was registered as a UK charity in 1963 and is administered by a group of Trustees and a Clerk who deals with day-to-day management.
The aim of the charity is to provide affordable housing for retirement age people with limited means. Applicants must have lived in the Sevenoaks district or have a connection with this area. They must also be capable of living independently but within a friendly and supportive community. We are not a care or residential home and do not have a Warden. We warmly welcome enquiries from anyone who fits the above criteria and is interested in applying.
