Discover why Cumberland Villages are the best choice for over 55s living

Welcome to your new home

Cumberland Villages are passionate about creating over 55s living communities and are renowned for our warmth, friendliness and experience. Located in the Newcastle area, we were founded on the desire to create comfortable, safe, integrated over 55s living facilities that are filled with vibrancy.

Cumberland Villages offer a variety of small villages centrally located in Newcastle. Our villages combine residential, lifestyle and recreational facilities where you can form new friendships and be part of a welcoming, close knit community whilst still continuing to live independently.

Within a Cumberland Village you can experience beautifully maintained village surrounds, quality villas and superb facilities while enjoying a wide range of activities to enhance any desired retirement lifestyle.

With three villages to choose from, offering one, two and three bedroom villas, you’ll find a home that suits your personality, needs and budget.

Welcome to

Cumberland Gardens

Cumberland Gardens is the latest of three master-planned Over 55s lifestyle communities delivered by Cumberland Villages.

Located in Shortland, this is our original Cumberland village. Centrally located just 15 mins from Newcastle CBD, Cumberland Grove offers security, privacy, modern living and enhanced quality of life within a community lifestyle.

Found just around the corner from our original village development, Cumberland Glen offers a relaxing lifestyle retreat with ample village recreation facilities.

Relax with a good book and a glass of your favourite beverage, while soaking in the evening sun – each villa comes complete with a generous al-fresco patio overlooking the lush Hunter wetlands.

Play pool, table tennis, air hockey, darts, a round of indoor bowls in the games room or just catch up on your team’s latest sports results, whatever you are into there’s something to suit in the generous community centre.

Set among manicured gardens with a rural aspect right in the heart of Wallsend, Cumberland Gardens is our newest lifestyle village. Stage One is nearing completion and we are taking deposits with occupancy scheduled for March/April 2023.

This village offers modern two-and three-bedroom villas, with dual bathrooms, double and single garage options and ample additional parking. There’s plenty of great shared village facilities too - enjoy a morning swim in the indoor pool, work out in the gym, have fun in the games room, or take in a movie in the theatre room then relax on the expansive al-fresco deck and try your hand at outdoor bowls. The options are endless.
