"I love the spaciousness of the hallways and the tranquillity of my new home. My one-bedroom apartment is perfect, it has a Juliet balcony which looks over an abundance of trees and the beautifully landscaped gardens which I adore waking  up to every morning."

Betty Chinnock

Testimonial - McCarthy & Stone

"The gardens here are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen, and I get to enjoy them without the worry of having to maintain them myself. It is just such an easy way of life and I would absolutely recommend downsizing to a development such as this."

Janet Roberts

"I’m really pleased with my new home – my apartment is very comfy, I feel safe and the communal areas are very comfortable, it’s like living in your own five-star hotel."

Carol Taylor

Testimonial - McCarthy & Stone

"I just love it here, I’ve never looked back and Milo, my little dog, has settled in well too.  My flat has outside space and I potter in the garden most days, so I’m always chatting to people about how great the development is."

Elizabeth Foster 

Testimonial - McCarthy & Stone

"Having the guest suite is just so helpful. It means that we can have friends or family to stay without any work for us to change beds, and all the usual preparations that you make for overnight  guests, so it’s hassle-free."

Mary and Robert Kerr 

Testimonials - McCarthy & Stone

"The maintenance of a larger property was something that we no longer wanted to deal with. To come here, where we have lovely landscaped gardens, without the hassle of constant maintenance is a huge relief – we can just sit back and enjoy."

Mr & Mrs Booth

"We were attracted to the development because it offered us the peace of mind of being able to leave the apartment without having to worry about security. We have just come back from a holiday knowing that whilst we were away we could lock up and leave knowing our home was completely safe and secure."
