Flexible Purchasing

  • Rent

    Renting a retirement home is an easy, flexible and quick way to enjoy life in a McCarthy & Stone community. While for some it’s a chance to ‘try before you buy’, you’ll benefit from long term security too. Did you know? Our retirement rental prices include service charge and ground rent. Find out more.

  • Buy

    If you’d like to own your retirement property outright, we can make the move as stress-free as possible, including support with packing and removals. If you have a home to sell, we can even act as a cash buyer, so you’ll avoid chains and estate agent fees.

  • Part buy, part rent

    Get the best of both worlds with Part buy, part rent. It’s an affordable way to enjoy all the benefits of our retirement apartments without committing to the full purchase price. If you want more financial flexibility, it could be the right option for you. Find out more.

"I love the spaciousness of the hallways and the tranquillity of my new home. My one-bedroom apartment is perfect, it has a Juliet balcony which looks over an abundance of trees and the beautifully landscaped gardens which I adore waking up to every morning."


Living in Belper

Belper has a rich industrial history. With the introduction of cotton mills to the area by Jedediah Strutt in the 18th century, the town prospered. Strutt built one of the first water-powered cotton spinning mills here and helped put Belper on the map. One of his mills now serves as the Derwent Valley Visitor Centre, where you can learn more about the cotton mills and the community that ran them. What's more, St John's Chapel, the town's oldest building dating back to around 1250, also houses Belper Heritage Centre. Here you?ll find an exhibition of artefacts and old photographs from Belper's past.

Another of the town's highlights is the Belper River Gardens. Having provided a tranquil respite for visitors for over 100 years, the gardens are a beautiful place for a stroll and offer a magnificent view of the cotton mill across the river. Plus, in summer, rowing boats can be hired, and various events are held in the grounds including concerts and outdoor theatre. 

Whether you want to see the latest blockbusters or classic art-house pictures, The Ritz Cinema Belper has something for you. Enjoy the plush surroundings of this Art Deco picture house as you sit back, relax and enjoy a film. And, if it's the arts that interest you, you'll be pleased to hear that Belper hosts an annual arts festival, with an arts trail and open houses. This is just one among a number of events in Belper's lively calendar, which range from food and drinks festivals to Derbyshire's biggest heritage festival.
