Just 4 miles north of Blackpool is the town of Thornton-Cleveleys, the location for the new McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development. Nestled between the famed coastline and the scenic Wyre Estuary Country Park, you’ll find everything you need for later life in Thornton-Cleveleys, from winding nature walks to local community events. Our proposed development puts you right in the middle of things, with 25 one-bedroom apartments and 17 two-bedroom apartments available exclusively for those over 60.
Our Thornton-Cleveleys development is currently subject to planning, but once completed, it will be ready to live in straight away. Enjoy walk-in wardrobes, a fully fitted kitchen and double-glazed windows. All apartments will include a Sky/Sky+ connection point in the living room, as well as a telephone and TV point in both the living room and bedroom. For peace of mind, there will also be a 24-hour emergency call system, house manager and fire detection equipment. The development itself will boast landscaped gardens, a private car park and an on-site mobility scooter store. Relax in the exclusive homeowners’ lounge and invite visitors to stay overnight in the dedicated guest suite.
The complex will be within easy reach to all the town’s amenities – just 200m from a Co-op convenience store and one mile from Marsh Mill, Thorton-Cleveleys’ principal landmark and shopping village.

Located in Lancashire, Thorton-Cleveleys is known for its stunning 11-mile stretch of coastline, culminating in the award-winning Cleveleys beach and promenade. It’s a great area to enjoy a seaside stroll, dine out at some waterfront restaurants and see some local art on the Mythic Coast Artwork Trail. Visit the neighbouring Jubilee Gardens or take the family down to the beach for some fun in the sun (and sand!). Thornton-Cleveleys is ideal for nature-lovers. Not only are there plenty of walks to discover, but the area is also a haven for rare birds and wildlife. On the other side of the town, you’ll find the Wyre Estuary Country Park, a Green Flag Country Park fitted with wheelchair access. Aside from the pretty views, there are also family picnic spots and regular events here all year round.
Back in town, you’ll also be close to Marsh Mill, Europe’s tallest windmill, built in 1794. It’s a fascinating day out where you can take a tour through the mill and learn all about its history. Marsh Mill Village is a quaint shopping area with a popular farmers market every second Sunday of the month, as well as a few craft shops, cafes, a pub and a fine dining restaurant.
Thornton-Cleveleys is easily accessible, with regular Blackpool tram services and road access to the M6/Junction 32 via the A6 Garstang Road. Buses run between Cleveleys Park to Blackpool town centre, as well as Morecambe, Preston, Poulton-le-Fylde and Lytham.
