About us

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.
