Affordable Living


Park homes are normally cheaper to buy than a brick and mortar house, therefore you can get more bang for your buck. If you’re looking to downsize, this option of park home living is a great way to release equity.

Often, people use the equity from a brick and mortars house to secure their perfect park home and also have some cash leftover to start enjoying their luxury new life. This extra income is usually used in a way to give them greater freedom such as the ability to visit places they’ve always dreamed of seeing, being able to buy their favourite car or just simply having more money to enjoy day-to-day life.

Join a Community


One of the main and sort-after advantages of moving to a park home is joining the community of park home living! When residents are asked ‘why did you decide to move to a park home?’ a common answer is, for the community lifestyle. You can choose from parks to suit your age, requirements and meet like-minded individuals that share similar values and interests.

Many residential parks have organisations and social clubs within the park which regularly organise activities and trips, meaning that your retirement will be filled with fun and friends!

Enjoy on-site facilities


Residential parks have great on-site facilities which are perfect for convenience or for the days when you don’t want to venture too far from your doorstep! Be sure to check out a parks facilities as they can offer a wide range of activities and amenities including a swimming pool, social club, café, shop and sometimes even a doctor’s surgery.

If you’re buying a park home to downsize, that doesn’t mean that they are cramped. Park homes have flexible layouts and often with open-plan living and built-in storage, so you won’t feel short of space – quite the opposite! Park homes also typically come with an outdoor terrace or garden and parking space. Most park homes have a small, manageable garden and some parks offer communal gardens for socialising. Residential parks are often located in areas of vast open countryside or woodland giving you plenty of extra outdoor space to explore your surroundings.
