To celebrate the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, McCarthy Stone held a royal tea party to remember at its Portland Grange Retirement Living development on Portland Street in Leek.

Guests joined homeowners at Portland Grange to toast to the Queen’s birthday with a very British cup of tea and a selection of cakes. Guests also had the opportunity to take a tour of the stunning new development of 49 Retirement Living apartments for the over 60’s, designed by the UK’s leading manager and developer of retirement communities. 

Fiona Brooks, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone North West, commented: “Her Majesty’s birthday is a key date in the Summer Season and what better way to celebrate than with our homeowners and the local community. Many of them remember Queen Elizabeth II taking to the throne and feel a sense of attachment, having experienced her reign from the coronation. I would like to thank everyone who attended, it was a fantastic event and a great way for local retirees to view our development and its excellent facilities. Here’s to you Ma'am!”

Portland Grange features a stunning homeowners’ lounge, ideal for enjoying a catch-up with friends and neighbours; beautifully landscaped gardens, which are fully maintained by McCarthy Stone’s expert team; and a guest suite, which is available for when family members and friends come to stay. 

For added peace-of-mind, a House Manager is available to take care of the smooth-running of the development, as well as a 24 hour emergency call system should assistance be needed day or night.

Portland Grange’s enviable location close to stunning countryside of the Peak District makes it an ideal place to retire to. The town centre, with its traditional market feel of cobbled stones and historic buildings, offers homeowners an array of local amenities such as cafes, pubs and shops.

Prices at Portland Grange start from £160,000 for a one bedroom apartment and £215,000 for a two bedroom apartment. 

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 14 years, which is every year the awards have been run.
