We're at the start of something special.


Welcome to Canalside at Wichelstowe.

The Freeman Retirement Living development at Wichelstowe will transform your expectations of what later living can be. It provides an opportunity to live life independently, surrounded by spectacular countryside and at the heart of a thriving community. We provide a home that matches your lifestyle, offering the convenience and comfort you need plus the space, light and room to relax you’ve been dreaming of. Situated just minutes from Swindon’s Old Town and with public transport links within walking distance, the Canalside development will consist of 185 new homes across 2 apartment blocks. Within them, there will be a diverse mixture of different styles and sizes, so you can find the home that best matches your wants and needs. More than that, your Freeman Retirement Living property will give you a secure, comfortable home within a community that is rapidly developing its own identity and character. Wichelstowe is a destination that will appeal to both homebuyers and visitors to the new shops, schools, parks and places to meet.
