Over three decades, Highwood has built an inspirational portfolio of retirement living, care home and care village developments that cater for the needs of a new generation of discerning homeowners and those with specialist care needs. We’ve shown how we can be sensitive to their priorities of security, comfort and peace of mind without compromising on luxury, good design, a delightful location and a thoroughly independent lifestyle. We also appreciate how retirement living brings its own set of unique needs, so we build in features that focus on safety and support, including 24/7 emergency medical assistance and expert on-site house management that offers help, discreetly and effectively, when it’s needed.
Every property is specified to the highest standards with beautiful, spacious interiors and the latest, energy-saving features. We’ve created distinctive communities with exceptional facilities that range from gated security, guest accommodation, hairdressing and fitness suites and relaxing communal areas to entertain family and friends.
We also partner the UK’s leading care home operators who are all proponents of specialist care, comfort and companionship for the elderly. This partnership has enabled us to expand our reach into the care of residents with more specific needs, including dementia and other mental health illnesses. The additional provision of Extra Care units ensures that, no matter how great the need for tailored assistance, Highwood’s later years schemes are always designed to help residents enjoy life and maintain their independence.
“We’re a privately-owned company and what sets us apart is our unwavering commitment to buying land for new homes development selectively and to build on it sensitively and sustainably – all the time setting benchmarked standards of design and construction.”

“I owned an area of land and was approached by Highwood who had an exciting proposal to develop it. We met and discussed their plans and were impressed with how well thought through they were. The entire process was conducted seamlessly and the projected was very well executed – my family and I are all very happy with how the entire transaction was managed.”
“There is a growing need for excellent care in high-quality environments in the region. We instruct Highwood because the standards of construction, project management and development expertise are excellent. This is why we consult with Highwood for our new luxury care home projects.”
