Carnforth is a small and vibrant town just 5 miles north of Lancaster and Morecambe. It's the ideal spot to retire to, with its stunning natural beauty, great local facilities and easy public transport links. That's why award-winning builder McCarthy & Stone chose Carnforth as the location for this superb award winning Retirement Living development, exclusively for those aged over 60.
Residents are treated to a fully modern complex, equipped with lift access to all floors, a mobility scooter store on-site and 24-hour emergency call systems. The apartments have been decorated in a lovely contemporary style, complete with walk-in wardrobes, fully fitted kitchens, Sky/Sky+ and television connections, and double-glazed windows. There is also a Communal lounge for relaxing and socialising with your neighbours, as well as a guest suite for overnight visitors. A house manager is available during set working hours, if you need anything else.
This Retirement Living development boasts a central location, backing onto the beautiful Carnforth Cricket Club. You'll be within walking distance of all of the town's main amenities, including a Tesco supermarket just 800m away, and a Booths and Aldi within a mile.

Trains run to the Lake District, Lancaster, Manchester Airport and Skipton - making it easy to get out for a day trip or a quick holiday away from home.
Carnforth itself has many attractions, such as Leighton Hall, the ancestral home of the furniture maker Gillow, Carnforth Bookshop with more than 100,000 second-hand and antiquarian books, and of course Carnforth railway station, famously used by Oscar-winning film director Sir David Lean in his 1945 classic, Brief Encounter.
Another must-see attraction is the Nether Kellett Farmers Market - it's held on the second Sunday of every month at the Village Hall and is a great place to pick up produce and homemade food, as well as to admire local arts and crafts.
