Wainwright Court was built by McCarthy & Stone purpose built for assisted living. The development consists of 60 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. You can call into the resident’s lounge to meet up with friends and family or join in the many activities organised by residents and the Estate Management team.
Open every day, our table service restaurant serves tasty and nutritious lunches for our homeowners and their guests. All the food is freshly prepared and we can cater for special dietary requirements. For a special occasion or celebration, you’re also welcome to book our function room and there is a computer available to use here.
Wainwright 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.
