Copper Crest offers a unique retirement lifestyle for those who want to maintain their independence while also enjoying the company of others in a friendly community. Our residents have chosen to live in spacious and well appointed villas that suit their lifestyles, needs and budget.

We delight in promoting and supporting active living, good neighbourly relations and a strong community. Everyone is on a first name basis and feels a real sense of belonging.

Previously focused on independent living, Copper Crest recently added two extra dimensions of senior living to its offering – Living Well apartments for assisted living and care suites for personalised 24/7 care. For people looking for future-proofed accommodation arrangements, it means the tempting simplicity of a single address change. We also have villas for independent living.

To find out more, or to take a look through a home, please call Vincent on 0800 267 273 or 07 282 7999 today.

What lovely people we have in Copper Crest.
This is a thank you to three neighbours - won't mention their names as they will know who they are.
The other weekend was my granddaughter’s wedding and one neighbour offered to help with making 120
desserts, the second neighbour offered to help set up the wedding tables at the wedding venue and the
third neighbour saved the bride & bridesmaids from going down the aisle bouquet less when I appeared at
her door saying HELP PLEASE.
A big THANK YOU to our lovely neighbours, just shows you how lucky we are to live in a small community
with such lovely people. XXXXXXX

When in 2017, I decided the time was right for me to find my last “forever home” I knew I wanted to move into a Retirement Village. So, in my mid-70’s I started looking around to find the right village for me. It really didn’t take very long to establish that Copper Crest Retirement Village was “it”.

The Management team were fantastic in assisting me to find the right home for my needs and went out of their way to make everything easy, smooth and very painless both before and after I moved in.

What impresses me about Copper Crest is that it is relatively new and has plans to build serviced apartments and a care unit for on-going care should that be required; the homes are beautifully designed to catch all day sun in the winter and the terraced village layout allows maximum privacy for each Villa.

I love the variety of activities offered, mostly happening in/around the central Meridian Centre and the social vibe that welcomes and includes you …. I honestly don’t have enough time to join/do everything I would like to however, I am working on it!! I have kept interests and activities I had before I moved in and I think this is a most important part of the transition.

I have been made to feel very welcome by management, staff and residents and I couldn’t be happier. Everything about my new life at Copper Crest Retirement Village is top notch and I would recommend the lifestyle change to anyone who felt this was what their next move needed to be …. Copper Crest could be where you find your last “forever home” – I hope so

Shared recreational facilities at Copper Crest include a heated swimming pool, spa, gym, snooker table, table tennis and two bowling greens. Regular social gatherings are held at the Meridian Centre, which offers a dining and dancing area with piano, bar and lounge with gas fire. The new care centre that houses the apartments and care suites has a café, lounge, cinema, gardens and event space. The Copper Crest community van runs regular shopping trips and social outings.

Here’s a quick summary of how you can live at Copper Crest:

Villas range in size from 85 to 188m2 and offer a choice of single or double garage with room for a workbench. Each home is also fitted with a 24-hour emergency alarm.

Independent or assisted living in a Living Well apartment, which is designed to make day-to-day living easier for people who need just a little help. Every apartment has a view, full kitchen and balcony. Residents get a daily buffet breakfast and a weekly house clean.

Rest home, hospital-level or dementia care in a beautiful care suite. There are a range of suites, some complete with living area, ensuite bathroom and kitchenette. A special feature of the care suite lifestyle at Copper Crest is how residents are grouped into households, to create a homely atmosphere and nurture relationships.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
