Heslington Court is located in the popular, bustling village of Heslington (YO10 5EX). It is approximately three miles to the South East of York, close the University of York. In the main village there are banks, pubs, a post office, hair salon and grocery shop. There is also a church nearby and a regular bus service into York city centre.
Heslington Court is a close knit community. It has 20 self-contained two-bedroom flats and four one-bedroom flats in a two storey building. They are designed to enable residents to live independently within a safe, inclusive environment. Each flat has warm-air gas-fired central heating. The scheme is supported by a government grant of 30% of the cost. It enables a purchaser to acquire up to 70% interest in the value of the property. This is on a 99 year leasehold for the elderly scheme.

Communal facilities include a resident’s lounge, laundry and gardens which all residents pay a monthly service charge for. Residents can get involved in weekly social activities.
