Oakland Village is a complex of 88 beautiful apartments, located in the heart of South Derbyshire.

This purpose-built extra care scheme caters for the needs of people aged over 55 and aims to help them live life to the full. They offer the opportunity for residents to enjoy a host of different activities, stay fit and feel young. It boasts a comprehensive array of facilities, for people to get involved with fellow residents and the local community as much or as little as they choose.

The Village has amenities that include a bar, bistro and restaurant (Coal’s Restaurant) and function rooms which are open to the public. We have a small Village Shop onsite which is run mainly by volunteers who live at Oakland Village as well as an onsite hair salon.

24/7 support will be available in an emergency.
