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.


Living in Settle

A bustling market town found in the foothills of the Pennines, The Wickets is a fantastic scenic location in picturesque North Yorkshire. The town is actually found beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - offering plenty of spectacular views for locals.

For those interested in history, Settle's past dates back to the 7th century with a number of key attractions still found in the market town. This includes the Grade I listed Folly, and the Old Naked Man building, which is believed to be the oldest cafe in the country.

Traditional values aren't lost in this bustling town though and on Tuesdays Settle still hosts its weekly market.

In terms of transport links, Settle Railway Station serves the community with numerous local services, as well as journeys to locations found further afield. This includes popular villages such as Dent, Appleby and Carlisle. Road links are also available via the A65 and B6480 with the A65 also connecting to the M6 motorway.

Those interested in exploring the local area will also find plenty to do with 'The Three Peaks' - Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent all 700m high and one of the most popular outdoor areas found in the Dales.
