A new McCarthy & Stone development has had planning approved on Flood Lane in Bridport. Located close to the town centre, McCarthy & Stone is planning a range of 38 one bedroom and two bedroom Retirement Living properties with excellent links to local amenities and surrounding villages.

Each of these retirement homes in Bridport will be made with the over-60s in mind. These properties allow you to downsize and free yourself from the responsibility and burden of cleaning and maintaining a family home. Plus, it allows you to live in a community of like-minded people where it’s easy to make new friends.

All residents of our retirement properties in Bridport still own their apartments, too. So you don’t feel like you’re sacrificing anything by downsizing. However, while maintaining your independence, you’ll also be provided with peace of mind. Our Bridport development includes a 24/7 emergency call system and an on-site House Manager during office hours, so help is always on hand, should it be required. 

In addition, as well as providing you with a safe and secure environment, we also take care of the gardening and external maintenance of your property. This means that when you opt for one of our retirement homes in Bridport, you’re free to spend your retirement in the way that you choose. Whether that’s socialising in communal areas, enjoying some peace and quiet in your own apartment or exploring Bridport and the Jurassic Coast is entirely your choice.

THE LOCAL AREA

Living in Bridport

Bridport is a beautiful market town in Dorset, located only 1.5 miles inland from the English Channel near the confluence of the River Brit and the River Asker, its tributary.

Although famous as a rope-making centre and a fishing village, Bridport now has a vibrant arts and culture scene, including an arts centre, a theatre, a cinema and a museum, which means that you’ll have plenty to see, experience and explore close to the development.

When you move to one of our retirement properties in Bridport, you’ll also find a number of festivals to enjoy, including the Bridport Literary Festival, the Bridport Food Festival, the annual Hat Festival and the Christmas Tree Festival. There’s also an annual carnival that includes a car boot sale, a fete, a funfair and an evening of live music. A torchlight procession takes place the next day, when 1,500 torches are carried over two miles to light a bonfire in West Bay.

If you’re looking for an active retirement, then Bridport provides plenty to keep you busy. Part of the idyllic Jurassic Coast, the local area is packed with beautiful walks and rambles. In the town itself, you’ll also find a football club, a rugby union club and Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club, which includes an 18-hole links golf course, a driving range and a pitch and putt course. For gentler pursuits, you’ll also find a swimming club, a water polo club and a couple of bowling clubs.
