Why our residents love living at Closebourne Village

Kate and Brett

“We chose Closebourne Village for our retirement home as the location at Morpeth appealed to our love of history. Closebourne celebrates our heritage with village amenities located in heritage buildings. The tea room, meeting areas and chapel hall are magnificent examples of Georgian and Victorian architecture at its height. We left the Canberra cold and structured street scapes for the expansive views of the Hunter River and the mountains.
Our modern villa has the perfect layout for a couple with plenty of room for guests or family (grandchildren) to stay. Since moving in our health has improved as the amenities, activities and grounds are designed for easy exercise.”

“I moved into the village nearly three years ago. I had been for a morning tea with a friend and was blown away with the beauty of the house and its surrounds. I had recently downsized to a smaller but older home than I had previously lived in and expected to spend quite a lot of money on renovations. I came to the village. Everything looked clean, green and ready to go. No extra work required here. I put my name down. Couldn’t wait. I waited nearly a year. The village grew, blossomed, under my watchful eye.
Then I arrived. I am blessed with the best neighbours, social activities galore, like the song says, “a green and pleasant land”. I feel so lucky to be here. Not much chance of loneliness, but privacy is also maintained. Do as little or as much as you want, there is always someone to say g’day to. Walk the green meadow, enjoy the view, then retreat to your own private heaven. I know I do.”
