Polly's Field Village

Opened in January 2022, Polly's Field Village has 99 apartments, with 62 for sale and 37 rental units in a friendly community retirement village in Bocking in Braintree created by The Abbeyfield Braintree, Bocking and Felsted Society.

Set in a lovely six-acre site with stunning views overlooking farmland and a windmill, Polly's Field Village is a wonderfully designed retirement village in a stunning location. All our beautiful, bright and spacious apartments have a fully fitted kitchen, wet room and either a balcony or patio where you can have a unique lifestyle- independent living with support available if required. Bring your own furniture to personalise your apartment and make it feel like home.

Polly's Field Village is just a short distance from the town centre which has a range of shops, restaurants, parks, clubs and village hall.

Enjoy later life

Make the most of later life and remain independent where you're free to take part in the variety of activities and facilities in the village including:

  • a gym so you can keep fit and work out
  • hairdresser and beauty salon to pamper yourself
  • a classy bistro/restaurant so you can dine in and enjoy delicious food without the need to go out
  • a guest room for when you have visiting family and friends
  • a range of activities including art classes, bingo evenings, quiz nights or take part in some gardening in our very own greenhouse

Or if you fancy just relaxing and taking it easy - you can do that too!

Like so many others approaching retirement, we were looking for a retirement lifestyle with genuine independence, lots of activities and lively social opportunities. So hearing the enthusiastic way that Abbeyfield presented their vision for Polly’s Field Village, we felt it met all our hopes for our future. We were especially impressed with the way that Abbeyfield had ‘future proofed’ the levels of support as our needs develop. Now we can honestly say we are looking forward to our retirement.
