Owner insight "Whitley Court offers more than just a home, it offers a lifestyle. There is a wonderful social environment should people wish to be a part, but equally the quiet retreat of the property or peaceful areas to sit and relax both inside or out in the garden. The feeling of comfort and security was an important feature, knowing there was someone on hand 24 hours a day in case of an emergency and the option to have additional care if needed."
