When you move into one of our retirement properties, you’ll maintain your independence but you’ll also have peace of mind, knowing that help and support is available when you require it. A House Manager is on-site during office hours and there’s a 24/7 emergency call system you can use at any time.
Plus, we take care of the external maintenance of your property, including all of the gardening.

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.
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.

Living in Market Drayton
Market Drayton is a historic market town in North Shropshire, close to the Welsh and Staffordshire borders. It is located on the River Tern, on the picturesque Shropshire Union Canal, between Shrewsbury and Stafford.
Our development is in a central location, with all the local amenities practically on the doorstep. It’s only 0.2 miles away from the centre of the town, which is accessed via a gently sloping and pedestrian friendly walk along Stafford Street.
The streets of Market Drayton have a lot of historic character, with a mix of half-timbered, Georgian and Victorian buildings. The town has also retained its heritage, and the Buttercross market shelter, a stone portico in the centre of the town, is filled with popular market stalls on Wednesdays. The centre also offers a variety of local amenities, including an Asda and Morrisons supermarket, a medical centre, local shops, a library, a post office, a pharmacy and several banks.
Away from the town centre, it’s also easy to get out and explore. The town sits next to the Shropshire Union Canal, where you can enjoy a number of picturesque walks on the canal towpaths. In the wider area, there are also a number of beautiful gardens like Wollerton Old Hall and the Dorothy Clive Garden, as well as heritage sites like the Hawkstone Park Follies, Moreton Corbet Castle and the Ironbridge Gorge.
Your family and friends will also find it easy to visit you at our retirement properties in Market Drayton too, as the A53 and the A41 are both close by. Plus, local bus routes also make it easy to reach the surrounding villages and Stoke-on-Trent, where you can catch cross-country rail services.
