Escape to The Cotswolds with a new retirement home in Burford

According to property website, Rightmove, The Cotswolds emerged as one of the most popular destinations for home hunters with searches for homes in the area more than doubling in the second half of the year when compared to the same period a year earlier.

If you’re thinking of retiring to the Cotswolds, make sure you view Beechcroft’s latest over 55s development, Cotswold Gate in the delightful market town of Burford. Cotswold Gate comprises a collection of elegant houses and luxurious apartments, located opposite the popular Cotswold Garden Company, less than a mile from Burford High Street.

The reasons for retiring to the Cotswolds are obvious, particularly at a time when we’re all realising how important it is to have scenic, open spaces on our doorstep, along with traditional local shops and a real sense of community. Living at Cotswold Gate, your retirement can be whatever you want it to be. If you’re still working, you’ll have a quiet place to work from home and there are excellent transport links to the Midlands, Oxford and London.

Moving to the Cotswolds means having wonderful countryside to explore. Oxford, just 40 minutes from Burford, has all the theatres, museums and galleries you can wish for and, of course, there’s Cheltenham, dubbed the ‘cultural centre of the Cotswolds’ with an array of festivals and events from music and literature, to film, food and horse racing. Blenheim Palace, Berkeley Castle and Sudeley Castle are just a few of the grand, historic homes and gorgeous gardens in the area. Nearer home, the Burford & District Society organises talks, visits and lunches, there’s a local Branch of the Women’s Institute and jazz, singing, dance, fitness classes, bowls, golf and cricket.

Beechcroft’s new homes are priced from £430,000 and each comes with a terrace, balcony, private garden or a combination of these. Each new home at Cotswold Gate has been designed to Beechcroft’s Healthihouse™ standards featuring a specification that helps promote health and good hygiene. The development has a lovely residents’ lounge with an honesty bar and the beautifully landscaped, fully maintained communal garden is a wonderful place to socialise with new neighbours.

When friends and family visit, the guest suite may be booked through the Estate Manager who is on hand to offer help and support to homeowners and to ensure that the development is maintained to a high standard. The Estate Manager organises the cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas and the upkeep of the private gardens and landscaped setting. For peace of mind, when you lock up and leave, the Estate Manager also keeps an eye on properties whilst owners are away. If you own a home at Cotswold Gate and, for any reason, need to make a move in the future, you’re able to sell your home on the open market (to someone over 55) without having to pay any resale fees.
