The chance has come up for us to buy a new retirement bungalow on the Isle of Wight. It hasn’t been built yet, but plots are being reserved already on a gated complex. The proposed bungalow is in our price range, near to amenities, and in a place that we love and which is familiar to us. It’s for over 45s, so we’ve just about scraped in (lol)!
It’s a bit of a quandary, as I’d dearly love to move there, lock, stock and barrel, and so would Sam. However, our sons would then live 200 miles away from us, and could only visit us if they pay a costly ferry trip and then pay for somewhere to stay overnight. We could of course travel and visit them, but as the years go on and we become older, then it might not be feasible for us to do this anymore.
