Divulge in the delights of Dorset at Mudeford Place

5th December 2016

Retiring abroad might seem like a great idea, plentiful sunshine and sangria is very tempting but when it comes down to it, several British counties have the edge when it comes to retirement havens.

Indeed, Dorset has topped the rankings for quality of retirement due to its all-round appeal for retirees. Prudential has listed the county in the national top 10 in four of the seven indicators, including being the sixth most popular destination for retirees moving home and having the country’s third highest concentration of people over the age of 65.

This news comes as no surprise to us at Antler Homes, with recently launched Mudeford Place, located in a beautiful corner of the borough of Christchurch in Dorset.

This picturesque town is a hub of activity with beautiful beaches, a lush grassed area ideal for picnics and the beautiful scenery, not to mention the Quayside itself which has an abundance of boutique retailers, an excellent pub, a traditional fish stall and plenty of vantage points to watch the world go by.

Mudeford offers fun filled activities all year round, making it a perfect haven to enjoy your retirement. Best known for its beach with stunning views of Christchurch Harbour and Hengistbury Head, Mudeford Sandbank’s character is often attributed to its 346 beach huts – unusually, these have residential status for most of the year. The village is steeped in heritage, as it used to be an old smuggling village, and is perfect for sailing fans too.

For birdwatching fans, the Christchurch Harbour Wildlife Cruise offers an insightful weekend activity, in addition to a wide number of coastal walks through this magnificent wintery wonderland. The Mudeford Ferry also offers fantastic coastal views of the nearby Jurassic Coast. There are plenty of health clubs in the area, including the Christchurch Harbour Hotel and Spa, and the nearby Highcliffe Castle Golf Club serves as the perfect place for some recreational time.

There are some great properties available in the area, and perfect for retirees, including Mudeford Place. These 3 and 4-bedroom exclusive townhouses are just minutes away from the seafront and include underfloor heating, custom built kitchen fitted with the newest equipment, and luxury sanitaryware. The properties enjoy terraces and reserved parking, along with a beautifully landscaped front garden, and oak-veneered internal doors.
