Many purchasers are attracted to park home life because of the park rules restricting the age of people living on the park – many sites are exclusively over 50s residential parks. Presthope Grange is an over 45s residential park, meaning that you will be surrounded by like-minded neighbours, with similar interests.

Most over 50s communities are private and selective, ensuring that only approved residents and guests are admitted on the park home site. Security may also include: lighted parking areas and walkways, onsite office by the entrance which often is home to a park manager or sales person, prominent emergency evacuation points clearly marked on a plan and, as people are generally at home more, additional neighbourhood watch volunteers are active.



There are permanent residential park home sites on which you can choose to live throughout the year – Presthope Grange, for example, is a full time residential park with new residential park homes for sale in Shropshire. However, there are also sites with different licensing arrangements that do not allow you to live in your park home all year round. Before purchasing, it is important to confirm that your preferred site has a residential licence and no restrictions which will limit your usage.

Park rules may often include pet and parking restrictions depending on your park home site too. Doing your research prior to buying a park home is essential to ensure your new home is perfect for you personally.

Remote locations:

Many park homes are built away from any major towns or cities, but are generally situated close to transport links, so although they may feel isolated to some, they really are the best of both worlds for those looking for somewhere quiet and picturesque, with plenty to do close by and local communities to join. More rural locations will encourage going out and exploring, finding independent shops and restaurants off the beaten track and being part of a smaller more close-knit community.
