Discover Retirement Living with a big PLUS 

In our delightfully hassle-free and high-spec Retirement Living PLUS apartments, we’ll help you take care of the little things – as well as the bigger chores - so you can focus on doing what you love. You’ll find all the benefits of a Retirement Living development but with thoughtful extra services that are there for you now, and in the future. This includes a friendly manager onsite at all times and a chef-run restaurant, for when you don’t feel like cooking at lunchtime. An hour’s domestic support each week is included – more if you want it, plus the option of tailored personal care should you need it. Pets are welcome too!

Low maintenance and sociable 

This Retirement Living PLUS development in Lancaster is designed to encourage the community feeling to flourish, while also allowing you to enjoy the complete privacy of your own spacious retirement apartment. You’ll find stylish communal spaces, including a lovely lounge with free Wi-Fi, a library, garden rooms and a stunning roof top terrace - ideal for meeting your friends, neighbours and family for a drink and a chat. There is also a hotel-style guest suite for when people come to stay. The communal facilities are designed to become social hubs – a hive of informal gatherings and regular clubs, events and meet-ups to suit all sorts of interests. You’ll find things like film nights, pie and mash lunches, knitting clubs, cocktail evenings, music, yoga, birthday parties and even the odd fiesta. There is a scooter storage room and on-site car parking too.

Energy-efficient, safe and secure

For your peace of mind, all our retirement homes are designed with intelligent ergonomics and energy-efficiency built in to ensure they are a joy to live in and save you money on energy bills too. As well as being well-insulated, light and warm, they have the latest safety and security features. You’ll benefit from a 24-hour emergency call system, integrated fire detection and door camera entry, so you can see who it is before answering the door.

Plenty to do on the doorstep

Ideally situated less than a mile from the heart of historic Lancaster City Centre, with its unique mix of boutiques, coffee shops, and high street names at Penny Street, St Nicolas Arcades and Market Gate stores.  There is a bus stop right outside the development.
