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 Devizes

With a rich history and enviable location, Devizes is a great town for anyone looking for a peaceful lifestyle without compromising on local amenities and transport links. Home to nearly 32,000 residents, Devizes is a bustling and popular medieval market town. The Kennet and Avon Canal runs through the town and the famous Caen Hill Locks are situated 2.5 miles away, comprising a series of 29 locks over a 2-mile stretch of water.

Devizes features a variety of local and national shops including a large Sainsbury's that's just under a mile from the new development. The town is also lucky to have kept a good selection of unique independent shops offering a wide range of goods not found elsewhere. Weekly general and collectors markets, farmers' markets and continental markets also serve to give the town a rich sense of character and community.

A visit to the town's central Market Place offers several restaurants and cafes for laidback afternoons and evening meals, as well as a range of boutiques and shops. There is also a local cinema and a small pedestrianised area known as The Brittox. Devizes is also home to the Wadworth Brewery at the north end of Market Place. Their shire horses can regularly be seen making deliveries across the town centre.

Lovers of the great outdoors will enjoy the fantastic access to the stunning Salisbury plain in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside.  With 300 square miles of chalk downlands, the plain is known for its rich archaeological history and is also home to the legendary Stonehenge.
