The Lesser Known Benefits of Living in a McCarthy & Stone Retirement Development

Published: 20 November 2018

Retirementmove specialise in reselling retirement apartments from leading retirement house builders such as McCarthy & Stone, Renaissance Retirement & Churchill Retirement and have thousands of lovely retirement flats for sale.

There are many benefits to living in these wonderful retirement developments such as an improved quality of life and having access to all the wonderful facilities that are on offer.

One of the lesser known benefits of staying in a retirement development such as McCarthy & Stone is that residents have the use of the on-site guest suits for friends and family for as little as £25.00 per room per night.

The guest suites are on par with a 4-star hotel and mostly come with their own en-suite facilities, a television plus tea and coffee making facilities. The guest suites can be booked through the house manager and can be used when friends and family come to stay. In addition, if you only have a 1-bedroom flat, the guest suite can almost be seen as a second bedroom without having all of up-keep and maintenance of a second bedroom.

If you live in a McCarthy & Stone development, where will you spend your next mini break?

Another benefit is that residents have the option to take a mini break to visit other McCarthy & Stone developments across the county and stay in that guest suit. For example, if someone lived in Malpas Court they could travel down to Poole, Dorset and stay at the lovely Horizons development or travel to Claridge House in Littlehampton which is just 10-minute walk to the sea. Many of the McCarthy & Stone developments are excellently located near to shops and bus stops so the town is never far away.

“McCarthy & Stone residents are lucky to have the opportunity to stay in other McCarthy & Stone guest suites across the country for a reasonable price, but they have to be careful as most guest suites limit to a 2 or 3 day stay.”
