Making the most of later life means being well-prepared for the years ahead.
How will you keep busy? Do you want to seek community involvement to help run a charity or business? Would you like to travel? Where would you like to live?
Let us introduce you to the village of Lymm in Cheshire – and the development of 13 luxury park homes (with gated security and street lighting) at Willowpool.
Research into people in their middle years about later life shows they would prefer:
- To live in an established community where the opportunity for an active social life is easy to continue.
- To feel safe and secure in their own home while enjoying privacy without isolation from their immediate neighbours and the outside world.
- Financial security, lower home maintenance and repair bills and the ability to pay for extensive travel, hobbies and leisure or vocational projects.
People need to feel home is their sanctuary and that it contributes towards their sense of wellbeing – essential in retirement planning.
Lymm is a bustling village whose population consists of numerous people collaborating to improve community life for everyone.
The community spirit is evident in the successful running of the:
- Recently opened Lymm Heritage Centre
- Annual festivals such as Lymm Historic Transport Day which attract thousands of people
- Village library (a gem many village communities have lost), and
- Business networking groups enthusiastically support local entrepreneurs and retailers.
Lymm is a prosperous village, rich in heritage and in the opportunities it offers people of all ages to enjoy a high-quality lifestyle.
Health matters. And it makes sense to choose a location which makes it easier to look after your mind and body – somewhere which offers a choice of fitness, educational, leisure and social facilities and services. Better still when they are on your doorstep.
No-one needs tell us how important it is to walk a minimum distance every day to help towards maintaining good health. In Lymm, local walks take you along one of the most scenic stretches of the Bridgewater Canal and the picturesque Lymm Dam overlooked by St Mary’s Church.
A thriving village of independent shops and cafes are a pleasant 2-mile canal-side walk when you want to ‘stretch your legs’ rather than take out the car. Book your next bespoke luxury holiday at Mariner Travel. Treat yourself to a special breakfast, lunch or dinner at The Church Green. Buy the best freshly baked bread and cakes from Sextons. Meet friends at the Terrace Brasserie. Pick up every day provisions from your local ‘corner shop’ Budgens in Higher Lane (Broomedge) and dine at the Jolly Thresher – the nearest pub serving good food.
The best days out in Cheshire
When Spring comes, everyone feels the benefit of long days and light nights with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors. Whether that means using your golf handicap to practice the course with new friends at Lymm Golf Club or taking in the period elegance at Dunham or Tatton (the nearest National Trust estates). You’ll discover what Lymm has to offer simply by visiting the Lymm Village website or asking at the library, village hall, heritage centre and in any of the local shops where retailers are happy to help. You’ll soon feel at home here.
Willowpool offers the security of a private gated park with green space in such abundance that it’s easy to forget there are 12 neighbours nearby. You have privacy while knowing friends are a few steps away with whom to share life experiences and a coffee, beer or glass of wine.
To see the true difference of these park homes it is best to arrange to visit. Walk around the luxury interiors, sit on the comfortable sofas, admire the beautiful views from every window and see how easy it would be to make this your home.
A property like this simplifies your lifestyle and is of great benefit to people who want their home to be maintenance-free and easy to run.
This clears the mind to focus on building the perfect later lifestyle for you. When you are not using your mental resources to plan home repair and renovation projects, you can be more creative about planning a life of variety, challenge, interest and leisure.
The ideal home is one which forms the founding blocks of your new life. With fewer commitments and demands on your time, you’ll notice your imagination generates ideas you’d inadvertently pushed to the back of your mind.
