Love life at Freedom
“We’ve been living in Freedom Lifestyle Villages at Cambridge Oaks since March 2022. We weren’t ready to move into a retirement village so this was just a wonderful alternative. What we like about the Oaks is that there are people of a wider age range from 50 onwards and although I am in my 70s I don’t consider myself old. The people are of the same stage of life as us and have similar interests.

Live Life Your Way
It’s time in life to do the things you choose. Moving into a Freedom Village is a decision you make, and once you’re here, you will have the time and flexibility to do the things you’ve never done before.
Imagine heading off for spontaneous weekends, even yoga on a Monday, where every day can be happy hour (not just a Friday), all without a worry in the world? It is entirely up to you how you spend your time in your home or traveling wherever you want to go.
It’s time to put some more money in the bank and enjoy living how you want to when you want to. The aim is to free up your money by selling your existing home and moving into a modern, designer, low-maintenance home.
When it comes time to sell, you will share in the capital gains as your home will be sold for its market value (subject to a capped exit fee structure and market conditions at the time). By staying market-relevant, your financial investment is protected with the much fairer Freedom financial model.
Weekly budgeting is made easier with a clear fortnightly fee. This takes care of village life benefits, living and occupancy costs.
Over 50s Living
Living in a more secure community with like-minded people who can share similar experiences makes for easy living.
