Palm Grove Village

Tucked away in a peaceful, sunny spot, Palm Grove is on a main route handy to the shops and motorways where it’s easy to balance an active social life and your leisure time. Visitors are often surprised how spacious the village is, with lush gardens and room to breathe, you feel part of the cosy close-knit community whilst maintaining that important sense of privacy.

Our Village Offering
Palm Grove offers the opportunity to retire in a comfortable and affordable villa. Whether you like to entertain, or simply enjoy your own space, you’ll love the relaxed feel and open-plan living at Palm Grove. Our attractive two-bedroom villas all have garages at no extra cost, as well as a heat pump and double glazing to keep you warm all winter.

Active Village Life
Many of our residents are active in the local community – enjoying social activities at clubs and societies like they’ve always done. Palm Grove is ideally located off a main road and has easy access to public transport, which makes getting to shopping centres or visiting friends and family a breeze. Or if you don’t feel like venturing very far, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep. Give Tai Chi a go, check out the movie of the week, or join your neighbours for regular themed meals or Happy Hour in the community centre.

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.
