Exeter Retirees Step into Christmas With McCarthy Stone

11th December 2019

Exeter locals recently joined residents at McCarthy Stone’s Pinnoc Mews Retirement Living development to get into the Christmas spirit at an exclusive free festive event.

Those who came along were treated to mouth-watering mince pies and a warming glass or two of mulled wine, all whilst enjoying a sparkling showcase by renowned jazz band The Hipcats, who performed live renditions of festive favourites.

The event was part of McCarthy Stone’s series of ‘At Home’ events, which are happening at selected developments across the UK throughout December, and have been inspired by the social tradition of days gone-by that sees friends and family gather at home to celebrate the festive season. Everyone who attended also had the opportunity to take a tour of Pinnoc Mews, meet with current residents, and find out more about the lifestyle that McCarthy Stone offers.

Geoff Bates, Head of Marketing at McCarthy Stone South, comments: “Everyone who came along to our ‘At Home’ event had a wonderful time. It was a great opportunity for locals to see for themselves what a close-knit and supportive community we have here at Pinnoc Mews, whilst getting into the festive spirt. 

“I’d like to thank The Hipcats for their brilliant performance, which helped to get our festive season off to a fantastic start!”

Comprising a selection of 39 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, Pinnoc Mews provides everything residents could want for a relaxing retirement.  

Pinnoc Mews features a communal lounge, which is perfect for socialising with new neighbours. Retirees can make the most of beautiful landscaped gardens knowing all the maintenance is taken care of; and many properties also include patios or balconies, so residents can enjoy the outdoors from their own apartment.

A House Manager takes care of the day-to-day running of Pinnoc Mews, while a secure entry system and 24 hour emergency call system provides added peace-of-mind.

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 house builder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 14 consecutive years, which is every year the awards have been run.
