Case Study: Mickle Hill matched my criteria

My main reason for moving was to downsize following complete retirement. I had a fairly big garden in my previous home, so it’s good not to have the hassle of maintaining it anymore. I was looking for a retirement village with facilities such as a gym and a restaurant and I looked online for possible options across the country and found Mickle Hill, which matched my criteria.

Case Study: I’m looking forward to enjoying the amenities at Mickle Hill

I’m looking forward to enjoying the amenities at Mickle Hill, such as going to the bar, using the gym, and getting to meet new people. I love that there is a bistro as well - it’s great because it means I won’t always have to cook!

New Services Help Over 60s Move Before Stamp Duty Holiday Ends

Stamp duty relief is set to end on 31st March 2021, meaning retirees keen to downsize still have time to benefit from it. To guarantee a quick and stress-free move, later living specialist Rangeford Villages at Mickle Hill in Pickering, North Yorkshire, is offering a number of services to help them move before the deadline. And, contrary to a common perception, over 60s don’t necessarily have to sell their current home before being able to reserve their chosen apartment or bungalow.

Case Study: Why I moved to Mickle Hill

I had lived in the same house for 72 years when I moved into a two bedroom apartment at Mickle Hill on August 6th this year.

I had heard about Mickle Hill through a friend who moved here when it first opened about four years ago and I was always really impressed when I would come to visit. All the facilities looked great and her flat has so much space in it – I was grabbed from the beginning.

Mickle Hill is just so wonderful

Janet Ainsworth, 76, lived with her husband of ten years Neil in their family home in the Lake District when they made the decision to downsize. To move into their new home as quickly as possible, the couple opted for a part exchange to speed up the process. Janet comments: “It wasn’t the most economical option but I don’t regret it at all! The staff at Mickle Hill were just wonderful, they helped us every step of the way to make the moving process go as smoothly and efficiently as possible.”

My mum is so happy she moved to Mickle Hill

Like many of us, Sue Styles (62) from North Yorkshire was becoming increasingly concerned about her mother’s wellbeing. 89 year old Mrs Le Page lived in Gloucestershire in a large house and garden that had been in the family for over 50 years. Sue comments: “My main concern was the fact that my mother lived far out of any village and a long way from any shops. She was very dependent on other people and I couldn’t always be there for her due to the distance. Following my father passing away earlier this year, another major concern was that she became isolated and lonely.”
