33 Gloucester Road,
Where everyone knows your name
Good things come in small packages, and if you’re looking for an intimate, cosy place to call home, Metlifecare’s Somervale may just be it.
Small in size but big in heart, this is a retirement village with an unbeatable sense of community. A place where residents know each other by name, and where great store is set on family and friendship.
Somervale village tours and sales of independent living units and serviced apartments are currently on hold due to a proposed redevelopment of the village.

What residents are saying
Heather says…Thank you for helping me with mum and dad after I had been unable to make contact and after my less than successful telephone call with various staff of a telephone provider regarding their phone number not connecting. Thanks also for setting up the new phone Vodafone couriered to them. It’s really nice to know my parents are in an environment which is caring and safe for them.
