McCarthy & Stone - Gloucester Quays RL Plus, GL2
Offering age exclusive housing for those over 70, our latest proposed development of Assisted Living apartments sits right at the heart of one of the country's most prized areas of natural beauty. With a central position in the historic city of Gloucester, this is the perfect opportunity to find a comfortable home for your retirement.
McCarthy & Stone Assisted Living homes combine the luxury and comforts of modern living with a host of practical details to make day-to-day living as easy as possible. Each apartment comes fitted with 24-hour emergency call systems as standard. Domestic assistance is offered as part of the maintenance fee. Additional assistance can be requested as necessary.
The development is conveniently placed for access to the bustling quay area of the city, which is a centre for shopping and socialising. A number of bars and restaurants line the waterfront, whilst several high street name shops can be found along the neighbouring streets.
The Cathedral city of Gloucester sits right at the heart of the stunning Cotswolds, providing unrivalled access to some of Britain's best rural landscapes and countryside walks. Having been a settlement area since the Roman times, the area also offers a rich sense of history and culture.
Visitors and locals will enjoy a visit to the beautiful 11th century Cathedral in the city which has become a popular filming location and has recently appeared in the Harry Potter films as well as Doctor Who and Wolf Hall. Entry to the Cathedral is free and there are regular events including concerts and lectures as well as organ recitals and site tours.
The historic dock area itself also offers plenty of attractions including regular boat tours and a waterways museum, which explains the history of the country's most inland harbour. Access to the Alney Island Nature Reserve can also be gained from the quay area, allowing visitors to explore the unique local wildlife of the waterways.
Art lovers will find plenty to entertain them at the Nature in Art Gallery and Museum, where a fine Georgian mansion houses a large collection of art works that have been inspired by nature, the surrounding area and further afield.
