Set in the heart of the leafy village of Willaston on the Wirral Peninsula, this development offers the opportunity for rural living while only 8 miles from Liverpool and 10 miles from Chester. With just 35 apartments (both one- and two-beds available), the Willaston Retirement Living development mirrors the community spirit of the village in which it is situated.

Each apartment is designed intelligently to make your life easier, and some even have walk-out balconies. Enjoy the peace and calm of your apartment or spend some time socialising with your fellow homeowners in the communal lounge or landscaped gardens. Retiring to this development provides the best of both worlds. Feel secure in a home that you own while knowing that maintenance and security are taken care of. The House Manager handles the day-to-day running of the development, a 24-hour call system is available in case of emergencies and a camera entry system means you can rest feel completely safe and secure.

What’s more, there’s excellent transport links. All your modes of transport covered with our onsite car parking, cycle store and scooter room. Hooton railway station is just 2 miles away and there’s easy access to the M53.

Local area

The village of Willaston is the perfect size. It’s large enough to be self-sufficient, but small enough to retain its friendly community atmosphere. Being a conservation area gives the village a truly rural feel, while Liverpool and Chester lie within 10 miles. The development is situated in the heart of the village centre. Here you’ll find many ancient buildings, a quintessential village green and the restored Hadlow Road railway station. Closed to passengers in 1956, the station has been restored to its former glory and the track-bed has become a stunning 12-mile coastal path – the ‘Wirral Way’. Cycle or walk as many miles as you like and take in the beautiful scenery, passing through picturesque places such as Thurstaston and West Kirby along the way.

The Wirral Country Park also lies along coast of the peninsular. Explore some of its fascinating nature trails and take the chance to spot local wildlife. And the Thurstaston Visitor Centre is only all year round. Perhaps in the summer you might even be able to make the most of its barbecue area! The village also features a host of amenities, including a supermarket, a butchers, a charming tea room, a library, two pubs (both serving excellent food), two churches, a GP practice, a pharmacy, a hairdresser, a barber and a newsagent.

The village’s recreation ground features tennis courts, football pitches, a children’s play area and a pavilion. It is also the venue of the village festival (held once every three years), where you’ll see many people in fancy dress and colourful parades and you can peruse bustling market stalls. And, for the green-fingered among you, you could join the local Horticultural Society. There’s also an active Women’s Institute in the area.
