Description

The Wickets

The Wickets was purpose built by McCarthy & Stone for independent retirement living and consists of 22 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s.
The development includes a Homeowners' communal lounge and an impressive rooftop terrace with views of the cricket pitch and the Dales. There is a guest suite for visitors who wish to stay (additional charges apply).
There is a House Manager on hand during office hours and for your peace of mind there are a number of security features, including a 24-Hour emergency call system in each apartment.
The development features a camera door entry system linked to your TV, so that you can see who's calling for you before letting them in.

Local Area

A bustling market town found in the foothills of the Pennines, The Wickets is a fantastic scenic location in picturesque North Yorkshire. The town is actually found beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain – offering plenty of spectacular views for locals.
Set just moments from the picturesque Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland, Settle is a bustling market town with plenty of charm and historic character, making it an ideal location for your retirement.
Traditional values aren’t lost in this bustling town though and on Tuesdays Settle still hosts its weekly market.
In terms of transport links, Settle Railway Station serves the community with numerous local services, as well as journeys to locations found further afield. This includes popular villages such as Dent, Appleby and Carlisle. Road links are also available via the A65 and B6480 with the A65 also connecting to the M6 motorway.
