Audley Cooper's Hill

Close to Runnymede, the River Thames and Windsor Great Park, Audley Cooper's Hill luxury retirement development is situated within 66 acres of the Magna Carta Park in Surrey, with impressive views over the surrounding landscape and Windsor Castle. The community offers exquisite retirement properties for sale with live-in care service.



This retirement village was originally a private home, built in the Victorian Gothic style and known as Coopershill until 1871 when it was converted into the Indian Civil Engineering College.

At the beginning of the 20th century the buildings were returned to private use before becoming a teacher training college in 1934 and eventually merging with Brunel University in 1980.


Local attractions

The area surrounding Audley Cooper’s Hill is spoilt for places to visit. Windsor Castle, Windsor Great Park and Savill Gardens, Virginia Water, Ascot Racecourse, RHS Wisley, Cliveden House and many more, all within a short distance from this luxury retirement community.


Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, notable for its long association with the English and later British Royal family, and for its architecture. In 2018 Windsor Castle hosted two Royal weddings, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and Princess Eugenie of York to Jack Brooksbank, attracting worldwide attention.

The castle is open for visitors every day except Garter Day, Easter and Christmas.


Windsor Great Park

With historic woodland and award-winning gardens, Windsor Great Park attracts visitors all year round.

The Long Walk, leading from Windsor Castle up to the famous Copper Horse statue is a three mile tree-lined avenue with stunning views down to the castle and across the surrounding area, forms the most iconic image associated with Windsor Great Park. 


Savill Garden

Since its creation in the 1930s, The Savill Garden is a haven of beautifully designed gardens and woodland. Made up of 35 acres, visitors enjoy walking around sculptures and discovering new and rare plants from around the world, arranged in incredible seasonal compositions. 


Ascot Racecourse

One the most well-known and leading racecourses in the UK, Ascot Racecourse hosts 13 of the 36 annual Group 1 horse races. 

Rebuilt in the 1960s and again in 2006, the Ascot grandstand has undergone several transformations through the years. 

Royal Ascot is probably the most world-famous event in the horseracing calendar, attracting some of the most high calibre race horses all competing for more than £8 million in prize money across the five day event. 


RHS Wisley

Wisley is the historic home of the RHS and boasts one of the largest plant collections in the world. Every season has a different wonder to show - bulbs and blossom in spring, beautiful borders and roses in summer, stunning autumn colours and then frosty walks in winter.

The Glasshouse is worth a visit on its own, not to mention the cosy cafes where you can enjoy a hot lunch or cup of tea. Just around the corner from Wisley is a 'pick your own' farm where you can enjoy the local produce at a great price.


Brooklands Museum

Brooklands Museum is the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation. It is also the home of Concorde.

Reading Museum

Reading Museum is only a 30-minute drive from Runnymede and is well worth a visit.

Some of our beautiful artworks on display in the entrance hall and throughout the village at Audley Cooper's Hill were originally curated from Reading Museum.

Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham as a gift to his mistress, Cliveden House is set amongst 376 acres of National Trust grounds and has remained a pinnacle of intrigue and glamour to the elite. This impressive Grade 1 listed stately home is now a luxury award-winning five star hotel and is only a 30-minute drive from our retirement development and 6 miles from Dorney Lake.
