In recent times, retirement meant ending a career to enter a new comfort zone.
After years in full-time work, many retirees left their professions to the security of an inflation-proofed final salary pension from their employer.
Progressing to senior roles earned higher salaries which provided for a prosperous retirement with an assured regular income.
In the 21st century, retirees’ circumstances may be different.
Income may come from various sources, perhaps from fee-paying professions, consultancies, directorships and investments.
Rises in the value of property during your lifetime and reductions in the mortgage owed gives a generous amount of equity to use for reinvestment, to produce income or to buy a smaller home with cash to fund your ideal lifestyle.
At last, you can free yourself from the financial commitments of repairing and maintaining a large family home and move to a luxury park home in a parkland location, close to the city.
Welcome to Lakeshore at Burton Waters, Lincoln, where people are choosing to live a happy, prosperous and fulfilling retirement.
A new sense of freedom
Long leisurely filled days and time for new hobbies stretch ahead when the demands of full-time work come to a halt.
Every piece of reliable research into health and well-being advises the over 55s to:
- Stay active
- Eat well
- Make more of your social life
- Make new friends
- Learn new skills
- Exercise daily
- Enjoy different experiences.
You can do all of this in Lincoln with ease.
What to expect from an Arbor Living park home
Lakeshore gives easy access to all the opportunities you need to fulfil a rich and active life.
Right here on your doorstep is Lincoln’s David Lloyd Fitness Centre. Most neighbours are members and use it as their social centre as well as their fitness hub.
Every home has been specifically designed with retirees in mind. Most retirees prefer to live in a secure gated setting. Lakeshore is accessible only to residents (and their guests) and a local security company visits every day to keep the site secure.
The open plan concept makes living and dining easier and more sociable. The area for cooking and eating is a large light-filled space fitted with high quality appliances by renowned manufacturers such as Bosch.
A large table for dining, game-playing and hobbies is the centrepiece for family and friends.
Two bedrooms and bathrooms – and some with another bedroom or study – give ample space for work and play and for when friends and family come to stay.
The park homes are designed for low maintenance and are easy to keep clean and tidy.
Say goodbye to roof repairs, structural problems and the upkeep an older bricks and mortar property demands. Minimal maintenance is required thanks to guarantees on your park home’s construction: 50 years for the roof and BS3632 to mark the quality of build.
When you move to a luxury park home at Lakeshore, all you will need to concentrate on is:
- How to spend your time
- Where you will go, what you will plan to do and see
- Who you’ll enjoy life with.
At Lakeshore, you’ll have easy access to Burton Waters, its marina, shops and amenities – all within a 10-minute drive to the beautiful city of Lincoln.
Beyond the city, the county of Lincolnshire offers gently rolling hills for exploring and walking amongst – the most famous being The Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Market towns, aviation history and a diverse coastline rich in wildlife – most notably the grey seals who give birth to their young here every autumn. Find out more.

Make every day count
Are you looking to get involved in the community when you retire? Perhaps you will put your skills and experience to good use in a volunteer role. What kind of help can you offer in the Lincoln community? If you like meeting and helping people and want to ‘give something back’, here are some suggestions:
- Be the someone older people turn to when they need it most. Become a volunteer at Age UK Lincoln and Kesteven.
- The Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust welcomes volunteers, many of whom are retired and help out in wards, outpatients, pharmacy, clinics, administration and reception areas. If you would like to lend a hand to help improve patient care, these videos explain why people volunteer at the Trust’s 4 hospitals. Lincoln County Hospital is the nearest to Burton Waters.
- Would you like to work with animals? The RSPCA Lincolnshire branch is always looking for volunteers to help with rehoming animals, fundraising or work in the shop.
