Description
Find yourself in the box seat for any of Trentham’s famous racing events at Summerset at the Course. In a peaceful cul-de-sac, the village is just half an hour from Wellington City and is located in the heart of Upper Hutt.

The village centre is the heart of Summerset at the Course. It is home to a range of wonderful facilities including the Divine Café, library, resident lounges and social spaces, hair salon, pool table, and indoor pool.

Our village offers a range of villas and apartments for independent living.

One of the benefits of living in a Summerset village is knowing that should your needs change, a range of care options are available. Our modern care centre offers rest home and hospital-level care within the village.

For singles and couples who wish to remain independent, we also offer support and care up to rest home level in our spacious serviced apartments.

This popular village is expanding with a range of new homes being built over the coming years. The first stages are now complete with residents enjoying their new homes.

We have released a choice of new plans for homes to be built this year. Call us on 0800 334 404 to find out more or request a free information pack by clicking on the button at the top of the screen.
Testimonials
Testimonials
Living a very busy life at Trentham’s Summerset at the Course, Erin doesn’t have time to be retired. Monday and Wednesday are spent doing exercise and tai chi classes at the village. She enjoys Happy Hour on Fridays and creative activities on Saturdays. “I keep Sunday free for my family. But they often complain that I’m never at home.” Erin says. “I struggle to be retired because I’m so busy. But the best thing is I can do whatever I want now.”

Erin moved into her villa at Summerset at the Course in November 2014.

“I was on my own in a four-bedroom family home and was looking at having to spend $20,000 repairing the roof. Then I got cancer and thought stuff it!

“I did lots of research into all the retirement village living options and I just really liked the feel of Summerset. I’ve never had so many people wave to me in all my life,” Erin says. “My villa has a big living space and being on a corner section is very light and open. Moving into Summerset really felt like coming home – I love it.”

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.
