McCarthy Stone were really helpful throughout the entire process, all we had to do was settle in to our new home and I can say it's been the best move we have made.

Living in Great Dunmow

The ancient market town of Great Dunmow is rich in character and steeped in history – including the Dunmow Flitch Trials which are held every four years on a leap year. This tradition is mentioned in the 14th century Canterbury Tales, which awards a flitch of bacon to couple who can prove the happiness of their marriage. 

This development’s desirable location is perfect for retirement living. It is close, often walking distance, to a range of shops, traditional pubs serving good food, cafes and restaurants – the town offers tapas, Indian and Thai as well as contemporary British. You’ll also be close to essentials like a post office and pharmacy and the town has a library, community centres and a gym, fitness centre and swimming pool. 

Great Dunmow offers plenty of things to do from the extraordinary Talliston House & Gardens, The Forgotten Gardens of Easton Lodge and the pretty village of Thaxted which has a windmill as well as an annual Morris Dancing Festival.  

The ancient Hatfield Forest is the ideal spot for walks, cycling and outdoor pursuits, while Chelmsford and Saffron Walden can be reached by car in under half an hour.  

For trips further afield Stansted Airport is conveniently situated within 15 minutes’ drive of the development.
