Cardiff retirees invited to join in the Christmas celebrations

The UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone, is inviting Cardiff retirees to its Llys Isan Retirement Living Plus development in Llanishen to kick-start the Christmas celebrations with a Festive Cocktail Masterclass on Thursday 16th December.

Between 2pm and 5pm, guests who attend the event at Llys Isan on Ilex Close will be able to take part in the exclusive workshop from a local expert mixologist who will demonstrate the art of creating yuletide drinks. What’s more, visitors will be able to enjoy delicious mince pies and festive treats, whilst also being given the opportunity to experience the lifestyle that could be enjoyed at Llys Isan.

Verity McKay, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone Southern, commented: “We are excited to welcome visitors to Llys Isan as we kick off our festive celebrations. The Masterclass is set to be a great event, and we can’t wait to spread a little Christmas magic this year.

“Guests who attend the event will also be able to look around the Show Suite, meet the friendly McCarthy Stone team and see for themselves what it’s like to live within a social and thriving community such as Llys Isan.”

Attendees are required to book in advance to secure a space on the guest list by calling 0800 310 0383.

Llys Isan comprises a selection of one and two-bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 70 and over. The development features an on-site bistro, a communal lounge, which is ideal for socialising with friends and new neighbours, beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax, and a hotel-style guest suite should friends or relatives wish to stay.

Prices at Llys Isan currently start from £249,500 for a one-bedroom apartment and from £356,000 for a two-bedroom apartment. McCarthy Stone customers in Llanishen can also choose from a range of flexible retirement solutions to suit them and their personal circumstances, whether they prefer to buy outright, rent or to take advantage of a part buy, part rent option.

More than nine out of 10 customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 16 years’ running. McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 16 consecutive years, which is every year the awards have been run.

McCarthy Stone also received the Housebuilder Special Recognition Award 2020 for working hard to protect its customers – Covid-19 infection rates among homeowners are significantly below the national rate of infection across all age groups – and for innovation in the retirement sector.
