Williamson Court was built by McCarthy & Stone and designed specifically for assisted retirement living for the over 70’s. The development consists of one and two-bedroom retirement apartments with design features to make day-to-day living easier. As well as the privacy of your own apartment, there’s the opportunity to lead a full and active social life. The resident's lounge is a lovely place to meet up with friends or join in the many activities organised. Our on-site table service restaurant serves lunch for our homeowners and their guests, seven days a week. Williamson Court also benefits from landscaped gardens and a guest suite for visitors who wish to stay (additional charges apply). For peace of mind, there is an Estate Manager on site and 24-hour emergency call system provided via a personal pendant alarm and with call points in all rooms.
