A Day in the Life at Broadway Park - Allens Caravans
Allens Caravans

We moved into Broadway Park 10 years ago and could never go back to your traditional brick-and-mortar house. From the gorgeous views to the close-knit community, there are just too many benefits of park living that can’t be beaten.  

Before moving to Broadway Park we lived in London, but the big city life was becoming too overwhelming for us as we got older.

We wanted a small home that was hidden away from the hustle and bustle, and Broadway Park certainly delivered this. We weren’t convinced that we could go from a big city filled with things to do to a tiny village with only a handful of shops. We felt Broadway Park was the perfect middle ground, with so many onsite facilities in the absence of a crowded city.

The Various Amenities

Speaking of amenities, we’re never short of things to keep us occupied and active with the countryside walks and adventures. Not only is this ideal for us, but also our little dog who was welcomed with open arms into the park. On top of picturesque walks, we’re also able to keep active by playing on the bowling green and tennis court, as well as swimming in the indoor pool. Our grandchildren make ample use of the games room to keep them entertained.

Broadway Park also has an onsite community hall where we can socialise, watch live entertainment, and enjoy lots of other events. This space allows us to mingle with old friends and make new ones, keeping our social life thriving.

The Neighbouring Areas

As the name suggests, we’re a stone’s throw away from the small Cotswolds town of Broadway. We’re able to regularly visit the unique local shops and drop into the various independent eateries the town has to offer. Similarly, we’re able to combine our daily exercise with a cultural experience as we can stroll over to Broadway Tower or explore the museum and art gallery. Otherwise, we spend our days wandering through the village to spot the cutest cottages and the sophisticated period houses. This cosy and historical town is very different from the modern industrial feel of the big city!

Broadway isn’t just for adults; there’s a children’s activity park that the grandchildren love to visit. On top of this, they’re fascinated by what they can learn from the museum. Regardless of age, we've found that Broadway is the ideal relaxing setting.

The Friendly Atmosphere

One thing that we were seriously lacking in London was a warm and friendly neighbourhood feeling. In this sense, Broadway Park is on the other end of the spectrum, with an incredibly close-knit community spirit. Whether we’re having a natter with our next-door neighbours or sharing a drink with other residents in the community hall, you can guarantee that we always have someone to chat to. One of the biggest worries as you age is that you might become lonely; but this is impossible when living at Broadway Park!

We not only have the residents to thank for this tight-knit nature, but also the members of staff. They’re always ready to lend a helping hand, no matter what the issue may be. As well as this, they’re incredibly attentive, making us feel extremely safe and secure in our home. They manage to take every ounce of stress out of running a home, which is all you can ask as a retired couple.
