St Oswald's Village

Over 55's Extra Care Village in the centre of Gloucester

St Oswald's Retirement Village, Gavel Way, Gloucester, Gloucestershire. GL1 2UF
169 Apartments and 10 Bungalows 

Welcome to St Oswald's Village in Gloucester!

St Oswald’s Village provides 169 affordable homes in the form of one and two bedroom self-contained apartments and eight bungalows, located around an extensive village centre providing social, learning and leisure opportunities for both residents and the wider community.

These properties are available for rent, shared ownership and purchase and the opportunity to live in the Village is primarily open to the over 55s living in Gloucester, but if you live in Gloucestershire or further afield, you may also be considered if you have a local connection with the city.

The development features extensive communal facilities, including a village hall, shops, a restaurant, bar and a library. There is also an IT suite, a greenhouse, and a craft and woodwork shop.


The fitness and wellbeing centre has additional opportunities for residents to try new skills such as horse riding, painting in water colours, Tai Chi and wheelchair aerobics.

St Oswald’s is the result of a partnership between Rooftop Housing Group, Gloucester City Council, and ExtraCare Charitable Trust. An on-site care team, managed by the Trust, provides up to 24-hour support so that couples can remain together if one partner needs care, enabling residents to enjoy a ‘home for life’”
