Welcome to our house

Located in the picturesque community of Girton, just on the outskirts of Cambridge, Girton Green was built in 2012 providing 76 one, two, or three bedroom modern, high quality apartments for sale or rent in a welcoming and vibrant community led development.

Our ethos remains the same as our founder’s first house and is always at the forefront of everything we do; being connected in the local community, helping to alleviate loneliness, and helping our residents maintain their independence.

Spend time on ‘The Street’, where you’ll find our resident led coffee shop, jigsaw corner, and is a hub where we host a range of community activities – the perfect place to catch up and socialise with friends. Alternatively, we have an activities room with a fully equipped computer suite and is the venue for many resident led clubs and activities. We also have a purpose built cinema where you can join us for Film Club, concerts and national sporting events.

As a resident, you’ll have access to a wide range of services including full use of our luxurious spa facilities. We place an importance on maintaining your health and well-being and in our spa you’ll find a fully equipped gym, pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Other services available include a visiting hairdresser, a beautician who also does holistic massages and we also have a regular minibus service for shopping and activities, all of which ensure that our residents have lots of time to relax and enjoy life at Girton Green.

At Girton Green, we want to make sure our residents have a say and are happy whilst living with us, so we have a residents committee who meet and represent the interests of our residents by acting as the communication channel between them and management.

Our friendly and professional team are dedicated to ensuring that all of your needs are met and that you feel confident, supported and secure in the knowledge that help is always at hand, whilst still living independently.

The Abbeyfield Society is a member of the Associated Retirement Community Operators. As an Approved Operator, we aim to comply with the ARCO Consumer Code at the integrated retirement communities that we have registered with ARCO. The Code sets high standards for retirement community operators and provides a benchmark for good practice.

Meet the team

Business Manager

Amanda joined the Abbeyfield Society in 2014 covering East Anglia and parts of the East Regional Team. She has over 20 years experience in the housing, health and social care sector.

Operations Manager

I joined Abbeyfield Girton Green in February 2022, and brought with me 16 years communal living experience from South Africa. My role involves figures and people, and keeping an harmonious balance between the two, and it is this day to day diversity that makes my role both challenging and rewarding.

Assistant Operations Manager

I started working for the Abbeyfield Society in 2015 and have experience managing a Sheltered House Scheme. I have a passion for excellent customer service, and I am highly motivated to improve the quality of life for our residents. I have a beautiful family and together we enjoy cooking South African dishes and watching rugby and cricket.

Senior Administrator

My role is to support managers to ensure the day-to-day office operations run efficiently. I welcome guests, handle resident’s enquiries and redirect phone calls. I distribute correspondence, update financial records and process invoices. My role allows me to constantly develop my skill set.

Restaurant Supervisor

As restaurant supervisor I oversee all restaurant operations to ensure the restaurant runs smoothly. I train and supervise staff and ensure food health and safety regulations are met. I most enjoy the social aspect of my role where I get to meet a variety of people from different backgrounds.


Creating meals for our residents brings me a lot of joy and a sense of fulfilment. I love knowing the food I create is enjoyed by all.

What our residents say

Cannot praise the care team highly enough. The reception night staff have gone beyond their duties to help and show kindness. It is the staff who have made this such a good place.

We are indeed fortunate in having delightful staff. Always ready and so patient!

Resident at Girton Green

I find it very helpful to get to know and talk to other residents especially ones who have just arrived. It is good to have friends and family visit whenever suits me.

Resident at Girton Green

I am the daughter in law of Elizabeth who lived at Abbeyfield Girton Green. She loved her flat and life there. She made friends. The staff are helpful and on many occasions have cheerfully supported us and dealt with our queries. In fact, when the time comes I may move there too.
