property description


Williamson Court

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 and our on-site table service restaurant serves lunch for our homeowners and their guests, seven days a week. Williamson Court also benefits from laundry facilities, a central refuse collection point, 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. Pet friendly development, subject to permission granted- please enquire for further details.

Local Area

Located in the North West, Lancaster is conveniently situated only a couple of miles from the coast nestled between Manchester and the Lake District. Set amidst spectacular scenery, the city offers easy access to the national road network and boasts strong rail links to the rest of the country, there is also a bus stop at Williamson Court with frequent buses in and out of Lancaster. A farmer’s market takes place every second Wednesday at Market Square and offers an array of local produce available for purchase. Lancaster’s Norman Castle watches over the city and its sturdy walls enclose both a courthouse and a prison, the latter of which was closed in 2011. Other local heritage attractions are the Priory and Parish Church, both famed for their unique architecture.
