Pate House Charity

The Property

Pate House Charity was founded in 1574 by Richard Pate, one time member of parliament and a recorder of Gloucester. It was intended to provide accommodation for the elderly poor people of Cheltenham.

Originally located in the High Street, the retirement accommodation moved to the existing site in Albion Street in 1811. Over the years it has been extended and modernised, providing individual rented flats to elderly persons.

There are historical connections to Pates Grammar School and to The Richard Pate school, both of which are the successors to the school founded by Richard Pate.


Refurbishment of modern rented retirement accommodation

By September 2018, Pate House Charity will have three new one-bedroom apartments available as part of the rented retirement accommodation within the site.

The retirement apartments are located on the ground floor and first floor, so offer a range of easy access options. The well-presented one-bedroom apartments will have a fully fitted kitchen, containing fridge and cooker. The separate bedroom has an adjoining shower room. The apartments will be carpeted but residents will be allowed to bring their own furniture. Pate House Charity offer retirement accommodation to the over 60s of modest income or those who qualify for housing benefit. Criteria read more about our application criteria.
