Hollis Court was built by McCarthy & Stone purpose built for retirement living. The development consists of 49 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. The dedicated House Manager is on site during working hours to take care of things and make you feel at home. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates and security systems. All energy costs of the laundry room, homeowners lounge and other communal areas are also covered in the service charge. For your peace of mind the development has audio door entry and 24-hour emergency call systems, should you require assistance. The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability).
Hollis Court is ideally located on Castle Howard Road in the market town of Malton. The town centre has lots of small traditional independent shops. The market place within the town has recently become a meeting area with a number of coffee bars and cafes opening all day to complement the local public houses. The town holds a market every Saturday, as well as a farmers market which is led once a month. Malton has been described as "the food capital of Yorkshire", and was voted one of the best places to live in Britain by The Sunday Times in both the 2017 and 2018 lists.
Malton is the middle-ground between York, Pickering (access to the North York Moors and also a terminus of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway), Scarborough, Filey and Whitby.

The Railway Station provides links to the Intercity service at York and the A64, which by-passes the town providing good coastal road links to the east, and also west.
