What makes Summerset different
Summerset was founded on a deep respect for our residents, putting them at the heart of everything we do. With a range of homes and activities there’s something for everyone. When you move to a Summerset village, you’re not just moving house — you’re joining a community. And we think that’s pretty special.
At Summerset the choices are all yours. From the range of homes to the extensive activities and events on offer. Your pets are welcome after a quick check with the village manager and friends and family are welcome for short stays. We maintain your home so you are free to spend more time doing what you love.
Summerset villages are communities where you can make new friends and socialise with like-minded people, while also welcoming family and friends. Whether it is enjoying a coffee in the café, a drink at happy hour in the bar and lounge or tinkering in the resident’s workshop there is always a strong sense of community.
