Retirement properties - McCarthy Stone

Get in touch with your photos of development exteriors, gardens and outside space.

We want a new perspective on McCarthy Stone developments from the people who know them best.

After receiving so many brilliant photos of our homeowners’ favourite spots inside their homes, we’d like to capture some of the exterior views in our developments that you only see if you live – or work - there.

Our photography competition is open to anyone who lives or works in our retirement developments.  Submit your entry using the form below or email [email protected].  The competition closes at midnight on Wednesday 16th June 2021. If your photo is chosen as one our top three favourites, it will be featured in the next edition of Emerald magazine!
