Clawton Masonic Village is made up of 20 villas and is located just a few minutes from New Plymouth city, in the suburb of Westown. Westown centre offers residents the conveniences of a post office, local shops, cafes & restaurants among other services. There is also a nearby doctors' surgery.
The village itself is surrounded by beautiful bush with bird life including tuis, bellbirds and kereru (native pigeons). It is operated by The Masonic Villages Trust which has many retirement villages and care facilities in towns across the southern North Island, including six in Taranaki.
The Trust’s villages are quality retirement communities that operate on the charitable and benevolent principles that lie at the core of Freemasonry. Because the villages are smaller than those provided by commercial operators, residents maintain their individuality. They also enjoy the ‘village feel’ of their communities and benefit from the Trust’s non-profit, charitable ethic that sees any financial surpluses reinvested in facilities and services that benefit residents.
