Our carefully designed site at Rothbury House will enable you to retain your independence while living among like-minded people who share an RAF connection.

Set among rolling green hills, the house is a stone’s throw away from local amenities, allowing you to walk through the beautiful village of Rothbury to shops, cafes, and community services.

We have a variety of purpose-built suites available, each designed to give you the privacy you need to live an independent life whilst benefitting from being a member of our tight-knit community.

A tranquil place to belong

Spend evenings basking in the sunset from our landscaped gardens, sun houses, or our tastefully decorated communal living room. Enjoy coffee mornings with our friendly residential community, or walk into Rothbury village and explore the local amenities on your doorstep.
