Our Watson Place Retirement Living PLUS development offers you the opportunity to own a brand new apartment, set on the border of the Cotswolds in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside.
In all aspects of the development's design, our aim is to make your life easier, from raised sockets in all apartments to an on-site Bistro for when you don't feel like cooking. You'll also receive one hour's domestic assistance per week.
Set on the border of the Cotswolds in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, Watson Place has both one-bed and two-bed apartments available. With 59 apartments, there are plenty of opportunities for socialising with your fellow residents, and the tastefully decorated communal lounge and beautifully landscaped garden will be great places to do so.
The Estates Manager and our team of trained staff - one of whom is always on site - provide care and support as needed. With our flexible care packages, you'll only pay for the support you need and use. On top of these packages, you'll find call points in you're apartment, there'll be a 24-hour call system for emergencies and a camera entry system will allow you to see who's calling before you let them in.
A walk of less than 10 minutes will bring you into the centre of Chipping Norton and all it has to offer, from its theatre and local museum to a host of high-street and boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs.

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.
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.
