Lovely and warm

Property Type: Serviced Apartment

Winner: 2023 Trusted Brand Aged Care and Retirement Villages

Nestled among the picturesque gardens, this north facing studio serviced apartment captures all day sun. With the luxury of a ranch slider door, step out onto your very own patio which overlooks the beautiful village gardens. The village lounge is also nearby providing convenience to attend activities and amenities.

Living in a serviced apartment really is “peace of mind” retirement living – your housekeeping is looked after, a cooked main meal provided daily, transport assistance and fresh towels are delivered daily. It’s independence with support, wrapped up in a community you can thrive in. This serviced apartment is move in ready, so there is nothing to do other than enjoy this home.

Plus, purchase an occupation right to any Ryman serviced apartment by 30 September 2023 and receive a $10,000 credit on settlement. Terms and conditions apply*.

Retirement is a chapter in life filled with possibility and at Ryman we aim to help you make that chapter the best it can be. Having certainty about your finances inspires confidence, as it means you can live life the way you want.

One way we provide certainty is to have a fixed deposit of just $9,500, plus a base weekly fee that is fixed for the entire time you occupy your new home.

For more information call Susie on 03 338 7696.

We're passionate about creating communities where residents thrive - where there’s joy and lifelong friendships. And that’s why we’re proud to be voted The Reader’s Digest most trusted retirement village operator again this year – for the ninth time!

At Woodcote Village, we’re dedicated to caring for you now and into your future. It’s comforting for couples at different stages in their health to know that they can be cared for within the same Ryman village, by the same Ryman team.

We provide independent living and assisted-living apartments, as well as resthome care. Providing a range of living and care options is just one of Ryman’s points of difference.

Located in Hornby, this boutique village has a big heart, where community is the central to the lifestyle. Amenities include indoor bowls, pétanque court, library, dining room, bar and hair salon.

At Ryman, we believe the measure of a full life is one that gets richer with age. With communities that challenge what we think about ageing and bring joy and meaning to every moment.

Ryman offer some of the most resident-friendly and transparent terms in Australasia, with agreements written in plain language so they are easy for everyone to understand.

Ryman’s deferred management fees is capped, with our standard fee of 20% one of the lowest in the industry*.

Leading innovation is something that Ryman are becoming renowned for. Our seasonal Delicious menu is made fresh on site by in-house village chefs. If you ever feel like letting someone else do the cooking, you can choose from three main courses, including a vegetarian option. We also cater for special dietary requirements.

Just like our Delicious meals, our individually frozen meals are made fresh, using only natural ingredients. The ready-to-eat meals are very reasonably priced and are available to purchase from the village café or reception.

We’ve developed our own ACC accredited Triple A exercise programme. Catering for all ability levels, this free programme improves strength, balance and mobility. Our Engage activities programme provides events and activities for residents, such as the weekly happy hour, arts and crafts, and outings in the village van.

Having daily activities and events to look forward to, combined with a friendly village environment, is what life is all about. It’s those moments of shared joy and laughter. Because At Ryman villages, we create the kind of community that our residents grew up in – connected and caring.

Our townhouses are designed with the over 70s in mind. Their spacious, well-considered layouts include kitchens and bathrooms that make daily life easy for you. For your peace of mind, call bells are monitored 24 hours a day by on-site staff, and we have 24-hour security to ensure your safety at all times.

Of all the large providers (with 15 villages or more) in New Zealand, Ryman has the highest number of care centres with 4 years’ certification – the ‘gold standard’ in care – from the Ministry of Health. Woodcote is one such village that has achieved this ‘gold standard’ in care.

The lifestyle at Woodcote Village has so many wonderful aspects. However, we appreciate that everyone has different needs and expectations. Which is why we encourage you to come and visit.

Compare Ryman’s terms with other retirement village providers, find out what care options they provide for the future, and join in with the activities or events on offer. That way, you’ll obtain a real appreciation of village lifestyle, and whether you can see yourself living there.

We look forward to introducing you to our wonderful community.

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.
