Merrivale Retirement Village offers you serviced apartments - with the independence and privacy of your own apartment, safe in the knowledge that extra support is there if you need it.

• A midday meal
• Laundry service
• Apartment cleaning
• An interesting range of activities

The extent to which you participate in village activities is completely up to you – you can be as involved or as private as you choose.

This is the best of both worlds, relieving the pressure of daily life, while giving you more time for the things you enjoy, all in a supportive community adjacent to Merrivale Care Home.

"Buying our BUPA retirement village apartment was the best thing we ever did. Custom built, beautifully appointed, well supported and secure, we love it to bits. Even the purchasing process was a pleasure every step of the way, positive, professional and predicated on due diligence and attention to detail. We were blown away and 3 months later still can't believe our good fortune! " - Vince & Anne Stead, Resident

"I enjoy living at Merrivale serviced apartments. Staffs are friendly & helpful. You can be sociable or private as you wish with outings and activities. Also provided weekly grocery shopping trip. A very enjoyable cooked lunch every day. Apartments are of good size. Fridge freezer, dishwasher & hob included. 15 apartments, a nice size to keep it a friendly atmosphere. Altogether an enjoyable experience. Best thing I ever did was move to Merrivale Retirement Village" - Nancy Hodgson, Resident

"Moving into Merrivale was one of the best moves I have ever made. I have since then made a lot of friends and we gather around everyday to have our hot lunch together. I am taken shopping weekly and I have my bedding & towels laundered for me. The staffs are very pleasant and helpful" - Brenda Thomas, Resident

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.
