Dave & Jenny from Wiltshire
Dave and Jenny run their own oven cleaning business in Reading and lead busy lives, however reached a point when they felt that life was running away a bit fast and wanted to slow down the pace and enjoy life while they could.
The park home lifestyle was not unknown to them as their family have lived in a park home for around 30 years. It seemed almost logical for them to seriously consider buying a park home themselves.
The appeal for them was releasing equity from their 3 bedroom detached property and the quieter lifestyle. Not that 2 children and 6 grandchildren, on top of the business aren’t going to keep them busy.
They started looking around at park locations and were particularly taken with a Barnwell Show Home on Blunsdon Abbey Park near Swindon that was on a spacious corner plot. Buying a show home worked perfectly for them and they immediately put their home on the market and were lucky enough to sell it within 4 days.
They had also considered property in the Reading area, however found that it was too expensive to create the equity release that they wanted to achieve.
They were clearly relaxed at the time of visiting and although they still have their business to consider, the management is in place to ensure they are free to enjoy their hobbies of Golf, swimming and plenty of socialising. They have made many new friends on the park already.
In the future they may move closer to the coast, however for the time being they are clearly enjoying their new home.
