Wiltshire's Cathedral City is now an even more attractive location for retirement, with the addition of a McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development, Castle Gate. Now completed and proving very popular amongst retirees looking to live in the heart of Salisbury, the spacious, stylish and luxurious complex is exclusively available for the over-60s and features 11 one bed and 13 two bedroom apartments.
Every spacious apartment features stylish fixtures and modern features like Sky TV access points in the living room and main bedroom. There is a fully fitted kitchen with oven, hob and hood, and double glazing as standard for warmth and energy efficiency.
The safety and security of residents is our priority, which is why we fit all apartments with burglar alarms, smoke detectors, and a camera entry system so residents can see visitors before they permit them access to the complex. Our on-site House Manager will be available to assist residents with any queries or issues. Communal spaces like the Club Lounge and landscaped gardens encourage a community feel, allowing residents to get to know their neighbours. We limit the number of apartments for this reason, creating a welcoming and friendly atmosphere where residents can feel truly at home.
The development is designed with retirees in mind, with lifts to all floors and wheelchair access throughout, so you can keep your independence during your later years. We also provide a 24-hour emergency call system, to give homeowners extra peace-of-mind. There is plenty of car parking spaces, including additional guest parking so that visitors are always welcome. The Guest Suite is also available, so that friends and family who've travelled a long way have a place to spend the night.

Living in Salisbury
Castle Gate boasts an enviable location set back from the city centre in Salisbury, close to the River Avon and all the local amenities. Salisbury is a thriving Cathedral city, and known locally as 'the city in the countryside' thanks to the quintessentially English countryside of Wiltshire which surrounds it. The city has a bustling, energetic atmosphere, and is popular with tourists during the summer months thanks to its impressive Cathedral and close proximity to Salisbury Plains. There's always plenty to see and do, from catching a theatre show at Salisbury Playhouse to taking a stroll through Queen Elizabeth Gardens and Churchill Garden.
The impressive and historic Salisbury Cathedral towers over the city - home to the best preserved copy of the Magna Carta. History lovers will also have plenty to admire at Salisbury Museum and The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum, only 0.7 miles away from the McCarthy & Stone development on foot. Castle Street is one of the main roads in Salisbury, with a Tesco Metro, Iceland, and a number of pubs, bars and restaurants within walking distance of the McCarthy & Stone complex. The main shopping district of the city is only 0.3 miles from the development, where all the high street stores can be found, from Laura Ashley and Clarks to WHSmith and H&M.
If you're a lover of the great outdoors, then Salisbury is the ideal destination for retirement. To the west is Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while to the south the New Forest National Park stretches all the way to the south coast. For golf lovers, Salisbury and South Wiltshire Gold Course is under six miles away.
- Conveniently situated close to these local amenities:
- Lloyds Bank
- Tesco Metro
Situated on Endless Street, Castle Gate sits next to central Salisbury, only 0.2 miles from a Tesco Metro.
This convenient location means there are many facilities and shops within 0.4 miles of the development. This includes popular retailers, a Boots pharmacy and several banks, restaurants and cafés.
In the local area, you’ll also find a large Waitrose 0.5 miles away and Salisbury Station 0.7 miles from Castle Gate.
