Flexible Purchasing

  • Rent

    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.

  • Buy

    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.

  • Part buy, part rent

    Get the best of both worlds with Part buy, part rent. It’s an affordable way to enjoy all the benefits of our retirement apartments without committing to the full purchase price. If you want more financial flexibility, it could be the right option for you. Find out more.

THE LOCAL AREA

Living in Leek

Leek is an ideal location for retirement, close to the stunning countryside of the Peak District and boasting plenty of local pubs, cafes, shops and attractions. The town centre has a traditional feel, with cobbled stones and many attractive historic buildings.

Leek is a market town, and hosts a range of markets to this day. The general outdoor market is held every Wednesday, while the indoor market takes place Wednesday, Friday and Saturday each week. Saturday also hosts an outdoor antique and collectors' market, and once a month on a Saturday the ancient marketplace holds an award-winning fine food event.

Leek hosts several popular annual events, including Leek Art Festival, Leek Blues & Americana Festival, and Leek District Show, which are attended by residents and visitors of all ages.

There are a number of historic local attractions in and around Leek, including Brindley's Mill - a mid-eighteenth-century water-powered mill which was owned by James Brindley, a canal engineer. Cheddleton Flint Mill and Churnet Valley Railway are also interesting exhibits of the area's industrial heritage.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, a trip to Rudyards Lake is well worth a visit, where fishing and walking are popular in the picturesque setting. A rocky outcrop known as The Roaches promises panoramic views over the area, while Tittesworth Reservoir is one of Staffordshire's most popular tourist attractions.
