Roland gets a taste of seaside living while enjoying a complimentary two night stay
20 May 2014
When Roland Rudderham decided he wanted to make the move from Hampshire to a seaside town in his later life, we were delighted to help him find his perfect location in which he choose to settle.
Mr Rudderham took advantage of our Try Before You Buy scheme which gives people the opportunity to discover what life could be like when purchasing a Retirement apartment by enjoying a complimentary two night stay in a range of developments across England and Wales.
Roland decided to downsize while he was living in a three bedroom house by himself and decided that with the expense and upkeep of the house it was time to downsize to something more manageable.
He had been living in Hampshire but thought it was about time to escape the ‘rat race’ and enjoy somewhere more peaceful. He knew he wanted to move to the coast but apart from visits to Cornwall he didn’t know where he wanted to live. He had visited our developments in Ilfracombe and Newquay before deciding on St Ives was for him.
Roland added: “The experience helped me to discover what the quality of the rooms was like and I was able to make a good assessment of the development and the amenities on offer. I also got to meet other homeowners who were all very friendly and I got a real first-hand experience.
“I’m so glad I made the decision to move and using the scheme really helped me make a choice of which area to live. It’s a good idea for anyone thinking about downsizing and it provided me with the peace of mind knowing what life would be like when moving in.”
We’re currently offering visitors a complimentary two night stay in a number of locations across England and Wales. The stay gives those looking to purchase a retirement apartment an insight in to what life at the development could be like.
Until the 31st May guests can experience the McCarthy & Stone lifestyle in one of the fully furnished apartments, with refreshments provided. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet other homeowners and the dedicated house manager on site. Arrange your stay today.
