More and more people over 50 are looking at new ways of living; mainly in the form of residential park homes.

For those who want to explore the residential park homes Yorkshire has to offer, one of the best times to invest in one of these is for the spring/summer months, and with the colder months coming to a close, and spring slowly creeping up on us, here’s why.


Renaissance villages are a great way to make new friends and spend the sunnier days and evenings socialising with those around you.

With like-minded people living around you, it’s the perfect time to invite them around for a lazy BBQ or drinks on the lawn, or explore the local area with a nice long afternoon walk with friends. You could even take a picnic to enjoy!


There’s no better time in life to relax than when you’re over 50 – you’ve done all the hard work with a career and family, and now it’s time to enjoy being you. Our range of residential park homes come with a private lawn or mini patio, so you can choose to read outside, or just take in the scenery listening to some music.

If the weather turns, head inside and kick back in the relaxing and spacious lounge area.


With plenty of greenery around, you’ll be sure to get those steps in whilst staying within one of the best purpose-built retirement villages.

Invite your neighbours out for a daily walk (although, avoid the midday sun), head to the village green for a fun game, venture to Selby Golf Course for a round or two, or enjoy the on-site fishing. With so many options, you’re sure to feel happier and healthier before you know it.

A UK base

Last but by no means least, when it’s hot in the UK, it’s one of the best places to be. So, if you travel a lot, having a UK base for this time of year is just fantastic, where you can really make the most of the summer months in a relaxing, comfortable and carefree environment.
