The pretty market town of Bawtry offers a quaint, relaxed backdrop for Retirement Living. Located in the borough of Doncaster and sitting on the border with Nottinghamshire, Bawtry combines the luxuries of town living with easy access to stunning rural landscapes and outdoor areas.
Thanks to its unique location Bawtry has had a rich history and great prosperity. Formerly a port town along the River Idle and also a stop on the Great North Road during the coaching era, Bawtry has long played host to visitors from across the country. Today, the town maintains its convenient transport links and is easily accessible by bus, car and train.
For a little retail therapy, Bawtry offers plenty of shops and amenities with everything from highly-rated restaurants and cafes to beauty treatments and specialist shops and boutiques. With strong local character, the main shopping area is home to a number of independent stores including family run businesses, such as Brookes of Bawtry, who sell adult clothing from a variety of different makes and Bobby and Bella, who stock a range of children’s clothing and handmade toys. For day-to-day shopping, Co-op, ASDA and Costcutter supermarkets are all located just a short walk from the development.
The town centre provides a great range of bars and pubs and enjoys a continental atmosphere during the busy evenings. For lovers of the outdoors, the Bawtry golf club is easily accessible from the development and there are also plenty of stunning hiking trails and bike paths within close proximity.
Bawtry offers easy access to Doncaster, which is just under nine miles away. The city offers a larger selection of high street stores and superstores and is also home to the Yorkshire wildlife park, a great place to entertain visitors and get up close and personal with rare breeds and species.
