Why buy a park home?...

Park home living is growing in popularity among the over 50s age group because of the relaxed, comfortable and stylish lifestyle it offers.

Residential parks are ideal if you’re looking for ease of home maintenance, a lovely setting in tranquil surroundings, a relaxed way of life, secure accommodation, and a friendly community of like-minded people of a similar age.

Park home living…

Homes on residential parks also tend to be more affordable to buy and maintain than bricks and mortar alternatives such as a bungalow, while at the same time offering high spec, top quality and stylish accommodation. Nowadays, there is a wide choice of homes and, on a new development, people are able to choose a plot and help design a bespoke home.

Although often seen as a retirement option, park home living in a private garden village is ideal for people aged over 50 looking for an affordable and relaxed lifestyle, especially those that do not have children or whose children have flown the nest.

Benefits of park home living…

Value for money

Park homes tend to be cheaper on average than bricks and mortar properties of a comparable size such as bungalows


Relaxed lifestyle

Park homes are located in lovely locations often surrounded by beautiful views, and are ideal for relaxation, tranquillity and an outdoor lifestyle


High spec

The range of luxury park homes on offer nowadays is amazing, giving home owners the chance to choose or even design their perfect home


Easy to maintain

Most park homes are very well insulated and easier to heat than a house, meaning lower utility bills


Ease of use

Because residential parks are managed, they offer park home owners the flexibility to just pack up and go away for short or long breaks. All you have to do is let the manager know!



Many residential parks are gated communities, meaning that home owners have peace of mind that they and their properties are safe and secure


Sense of community

As a private garden village with like-minded people, residential parks are naturally friendly and welcoming, with residents taking an interest in their neighbours while at the same time respecting their privacy. It’s a self-policing community
