City living isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s loud and overcrowded, there’s little sense of community, and the air quality is becoming so poor that you may as well be living in a mine. So why not follow the lead of many of your like-minded contemporaries and invest in a residential park home? Here’s a few reasons why trading in the suburban city lifestyle for the quiet countryside life could be just the change of scenery you need.

The community spirit

The size of Gateforth Park encourages a real “everybody knows everybody” kind of feel. You will have plenty of privacy if that’s what you prefer, but all our residents have the freedom to be as involved with the community as they want to be. If you like to be quite social, with like-minded people, there will always be things to do and lots of new people to meet.
The community spirit in a residential park home can be particularly appealing to those nearing retirement, as many of your neighbours will be in a similar boat, so there will be plenty of opportunities to get out and about and make new friends.

Peace and Quiet

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city then a residential park home is the perfect sanctuary for you. Nestled in the pretty Vale of York, Gateforth Park offers the tranquil countryside way of life that is so appealing to over 50s who are ready to pack in the urban lifestyle.
You won’t be completely closed off from the world here though. Just 40 minutes north up the A19 sits the beautiful, vibrant city of York, and Leeds sits just west along the A63.

Safe and Secure

One of the number one reasons people want to pack in the city lifestyle for a countryside residential park home is the security it offers. Residential parks tend to be gated communities, which means you won’t have to spend your time looking over your shoulder like you would in the city. At Gateforth Park you’ll have peace of mind knowing your home and belongings are safe and secure in the best place to live in Yorkshire.
