Introducing Patrick Hogan Retirement Village in Cambridge


Welcome to Patrick Hogan Retirement Village. Sir Patrick Hogan is one of New
Zealand’s most successful horse breeders. His Cambridge Stud farm is world
famous and was home to legendary stallions Sir Tristram and Zabeel.

At Patrick Hogan Retirement Village, we have two and three bedroom townhouses
available. They feature a modern design and include full
height windows and doors,
allowing plenty of natural light to stream in. More new
townhouses are planned
for the end of 2023 and work will proceed on the main
village centre, amenities,
a care centre, and serviced apartments
in 2024.

Nestled in ‘the town of trees and champions’, charming Cambridge is a popular
town to enjoy the retirement lifestyle. The main township is just a five minute drive
away, offering boutique shopping, supermarkets, amenities and plenty of cafés
and restaurants.

Independent and assisted living


Patrick Hogan Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our townhouses will be light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open-plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout.

If down the track you need more support, we will offer assisted-living apartments and a full range of care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialed up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference


Our pioneering approach to retirement living includes resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment*, and our standard deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

*Some conditions apply.

Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.


Assisted-living apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.

Aged care when you need it

Care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.

Our Patrick Hogan Village care centre will offer comprehensive care options including 80 resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care rooms. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the care we provide and the innovation behind it. Care is customised using our myRyman Care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs.

Patrick Hogan Namesake

Each Ryman village is named in honour of a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer: Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page. They pushed further and set the bar high for others to aspire to. In creating communities that challenge the expectations of ageing, Ryman villages are also setting the bar high. They’re demonstrating that a retirement lifestyle brimming with new experiences, connections and fulfilment is something we should aspire to. Our Kiwi and Aussie namesakes represent the measure of inspiration, while Ryman villages represent the measure of retirement living.

Sir Patrick Hogan (1939 - 2023)

Sir Patrick Hogan is best known as one of this country’s most successful horse breeders. 

Born in 1939 in Rotorua, Sir Patrick quickly took to life on the family farm. As a young man, he raised award winning dairy calves before moving on to parade yearlings at the prestigious Trentham sales. 

With a passion for horse breeding, Sir Patrick, and his wife, purchased land at Discombe Road in Cambridge in 1976. Soon after, they invested in a lively foundation stallion, one that went on to create history – Sir Tristram. 

The reputation of his stable Cambridge Stud continued to grow to international acclaim. Soon a second generation of winners was sired from Sir Tristram’s son, Zabeel, adding to Sir Patrick’s continued success and firmly cementing his legacy as the King of Cambridge thoroughbreds.

Sir Patrick won New Zealand Breeder of the Year on multiple occasions and was knighted for his services to thoroughbred breeding and racing in 1999. Sir Patrick also held the position of President of the New Zealand Breeders Association and the Cambridge Jockey Club during his lifetime. He passed away in early 2023.
