“Meadowfields is a modern and stylish Extra Care development in the pretty market town of Thirsk in North Yorkshire. Offering self-contained apartments with care services on-site and a range of attractive communal facilities, Meadowfields is located a short distance from a range of small shops, cafes and local amenities and has public transport links to nearby towns.

The adjoining village of Sowerby offers a hospital, cinema, town hall and swimming pool.

The court is purpose designed and built to help residents maintain their independence in their own home throughout retirement for as long as possible.
