Discover retirement living to the full in the North West

From thriving, metropolitan cities to picturesque sandy coastlines and a network of charming market towns and villages the North West of England has it all to offer.

If you are considering moving closer to family, or looking to relocate and retain your independence then a brand new retirement apartment from McCarthy & Stone could be what you’re looking for.  Offering your privately-owned apartment with a modern, fully fitted kitchen and bathroom yet without all the worry of exterior maintenance.  When you feel like company, the homeowners’ lounge is a welcoming space where you can socialise with friends and neighbours. 

With developments across the North West and North Wales coastline, there are a number of exclusive developments just opened or coming soon in 2019.  Why not join us this Autumn at one of our popular Open Days to find out more.


On the Wyre Coast in Lancashire, new developments have opened this year in Poulton le Fylde and Thornton Cleveleys, whilst along the M6 with access to Morecambe Bay, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland apartments are available to buy in Lancaster and Carnforth.  In 2019, new developments are planned for Penwortham and Chorley.


Construction is well underway at our brand new developments in Leek and Stafford whilst in neighbouring Derbyshire our new Retirement Living Plus development in the centre of Chesterfield now has planning approved.


Planned developments in Alsager and Audlem are attracting a lot of interest ahead of their sales releases in 2019.

North Wales

For those looking to stay closer to the coast and enjoy the Welsh sea air, developments in Prestatyn and Benllech on Anglesey offer the opportunity to enjoy life in popular resorts together with the benefits of a new McCarthy and Stone apartment.

One further new development is taking shape in Bamford, Greater Manchester and our popular site in Southport – Brunlees Court – now has just a few apartments remaining for sale

All our properties across the North West and North Wales are designed to make living easier and are built to high standards – just two of the reasons we’ve been awarded the 5-star rating for customer satisfaction in an independent survey by the Home Builders Federation every year since the awards began.  We are the only housebuilder of any size or type to ever achieve this.

Why not visit us soon at one of our selling developments, view our stunning show apartments and relax in the homeowners’ lounge?  We will be hosting our popular Open Days throughout September and October - take the opportunity to come along and see for yourself and ask any questions you may have.  Alternatively, if you are interested in one of our Coming Soon developments register your interest and we will send you updates and outline expected timescales.

I can choose to get involved in what’s going on at the development or to catch up with my friends as I please. Our development has 24 hour security, a secure door entry system and a house manager to oversee everything so I feel so safe here. I feel that I can just come and go as I please and I just feel really safe and secure.
