Park Home Living

Making the move to a residential park home isn’t just a change of address – it’s a change of lifestyle too!  By moving to Serenity Parks, you’re moving into a high-end property with all the luxuries and creature comforts you’ve become accustomed to, whilst also being able to unlock significant equity that can be used to spend on your retirement and pursuing the things you love.

Downsize and Release Equity

One of the very best things about moving to a high-end park home is the equity you can release by downsizing to a more affordable property. Each park home located on a Serenity Parks site has been priced much lower than a traditional bricks and mortar property yet is designed to be a lot more economical in the long-run. Park homes are exempt from Stamp Duty (unlike traditional homes) and come with the added benefit of enjoying lower utility bills too. This allows you to keep a larger proportion of your equity that can help towards funding a more luxurious retirement or having more disposable income to spend on the things that matter to you.

Words from our lovely residents...

The park is in a lovely location and we know that the lifestyle and type of home will suit us perfectly. The summer will be a perfect time to move in and make acquaintances with our neighbours, and we are looking forward to beginning the next chapter in our lives together.

I decided that the time had come for me to downsize and move closer to my sister and friends, and it was a great reason for the much-needed sort out of my possessions that I had kept promising myself. I first visited with a friend just before Christmas and fell in love with the home, the park and its location. I returned with my son and he reassured me that it was as lovely as I had first thought. As well as my home being absolutely lovely, it’s definitely the neighbours that make this a great place to live. We all help each other out and this helped me settle quickly, especially when my car broke down when I first moved in! Everyone helped me with what I needed, and I feel that I have made friends for life here.

We were very lucky to have such lovely people on hand to give us a little help when we needed it most and we know that we can rely on each other in exceptional circumstances. Deborah really enjoys her drive home from work now, as do I, and it’s great when you arrive home to be able to exchange friendly words with our neighbours. It’s such a great community and we are so impressed we are trying to persuade a family member to join us at the park as we know it would suit them perfectly, just as it does us.

Mr & Mrs Phillips
Residents at Kingsdown Meadow since 2021

The time had come for us to leave our three-bedroom semi-detached home with front and rear garden in a busy area and enjoy our retirement in a more peaceful location and in a home without stairs and that was easier to maintain. It is really hard to find single level properties, and even harder to find one in a lovely location, so when we visited Kingsdown Meadow we were delighted. We just fell in love with the entire concept of living in such a lovely park home and it completely dispelled any myths that we may have had about it. We are thrilled with our new home and lifestyle. We’ve made some fantastic friends, have great neighbours and everyone really takes the time to be friendly and look out for each other. We would definitely recommend moving to a Serenity Parks home and we are so glad we took the decision to do so.

Mr & Mrs Evans

Our circumstances had changed and we had no option but to look for a bungalow to support our health needs, yet, there was so little choice available in the location and price range we had that we just couldn’t find anything that suited us. We both still work so are the perfect example that such developments are not just for those that have retired or have limited funds. We love our new home, have made lots of new friends and the real sense of community ensured we felt safe and settled in a very short space of time. Within the first month we had attended a dinner party and similar invites are reciprocated across our friendship group at the development. The benefits of this lifestyle are not only social, they are also economic too with our first quarter gas bill arriving at just £12! We have never looked back and would urge others to forget the stigma historically associated with such developments and see just how fantastic they are now.

Mr & Mrs Hanks
Residents at Chester's Croft since 2017

As soon as I visited the park I knew that I would be happy here. Everyone was so friendly, the homes were filled with light and had lovely views and in addition, the living costs were much lower than a typical home – I couldn’t wait to move in. Moving home at any age can be challenging but I have settled so well here that I don’t have a single regret. I am looking forward to the new chapter in my life in my lovely new home that makes getting around so easy and allows me to keep my independence completely.

Peggie Thornber
Resident at Chester's Croft since 2016

We decided that there were more important things than bricks and mortar and that we wanted a welcoming home in an equally welcoming community that didn’t demand too much of our time in its upkeep. When we visited the park home development we just fell in love with the simplicity of the lifestyle and, as our costs were significantly reduced, we knew we would enjoy the freedom to make the memories we had dreamed of whilst progressing our careers and raising our family. Our biggest fear was giving up bricks and mortar and freehold but our sons were both incredibly supportive of our move and encouraged us to enjoy our retirement – finding somewhere to live that felt like home from the beginning was the most important thing. We can’t believe how happy we are here and we would encourage anyone else to explore the opportunities offered by living in these wonderful communities. This was a simple decision for us to make really as when you work you don’t have time and when you have time you don’t have money. This move released equity from our previous home and allows us to maintain a lifestyle we can enjoy.

Mr & Mrs Higgins
Residents at Chester's Croft since 2018

We’ve lived in Chester’s Croft since 1979, and our park home is everything we were looking for. We’re delighted with the on-site management provided by Serenity Parks, and we love the central location, which has everything we need right on our doorstep. We would highly recommend the site to anyone who’s about to downsize.

Mr & Mrs Tillott
Residents at Chester’s Croft since 1979

This is an affordable way of living as running and maintenance costs are significantly lower when compared to my previous home. Living here is a complete pleasure, I have a lovely home and it is so nice being able to step out your home, have a friendly chat or a simple ‘Good Morning’ with your neighbours and know that should I ever need anything, someone who is happy to help is close by.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: What is a park home?

    A park home is a luxurious, low-maintenance property that is built in a designated factory to exacting specifications and designed to the same standards as a bricks and mortar property (guaranteed to last at least 60 years). Every aspect of a park home can be customised and tailored to your specific budget and requirements – your specifications are carefully adhered to during the production process to ensure every element of your dream home is built to perfection.

    Once completed, a park home is then carefully transported to the necessary Serenity Parks site and is statically sited at a pre-agreed plot.

  • Q: How do park homes differ from conventional houses?

    Visually, park homes look very similar to traditionally-built bungalows with pitched roofs and attractive aesthetics, but park homes are built in a different way. Instead of being built on-site, park homes are built off-site and carefully transported to their end destination once completed.  This in no way affects their quality – Serenity Parks’ selection of park homes are offered full furnished, with modern interiors offering generously sized living areas, separate kitchens with integrated appliances, built-in storage, spacious bedrooms and a fully-fitted bathroom. In addition, central heating and double glazing are installed as standard, as well as carpeting throughout.  Serenity Parks partner with reputable and quality manufacturers whose homes meet the British Standard BS3632.

  • Q: What’s the difference between a residential park home and a caravan holiday home?

    Although the two types of park look very similar, there are important distinctions between a residential park home and a holiday park home. Residential park homes are designed and built specifically for permanent occupation and adhere to the residential British Standard (B3632), whilst caravan holiday homes are usually constructed to different standards to reflect their temporary occupancy.  In addition, permanent residential licenses under the Mobile Homes Act are not given to holiday parks, even if they are open 12 months of the year. Serenity Parks are fully licensed for residential occupancy, but if you want to ensure you are protected by the law you can check the park’s Site License issued by the site’s Local Authority to be sure there are no restrictions on the site’s usage (for example, “for holiday use only”).
