That’s the Life

If you're a big fan of your caravan and love nothing more than a trip to your favourite caravan holiday park, taking in the sense of community spirit, then you might be ready to take the next step. For some, this is buying a motor home for the freedom of the open road; for others, it is an investment in life: moving into a residential caravan park.

Don't let the name put you off,  residential park homes are nothing like the trailer parks in films or static caravan parks like you are used to seeing. These plot homes are attractive, sturdy and house-like, within a complex of like-minded people. You have all the mod cons you would have at home, but within beautiful scenery and a whole new community.

When you live in a residential park home with Allens, you are not just getting a smaller home. More than generously sized, our plots are stylish, high quality builds complete with carpets, curtains and finished to the highest standards. Boasting double glazing, central heating and the choice of how many bedrooms you would like, the preconceived idea of life on a residential park could not be further from the truth.

You will be surrounded by people who want the same things out of life as you do, and are there for the long haul. You will make friends, not just neighbours, and the park will become your home. With doctors, dentists and transport links nearby, many sites have their own post offices and shops, not to mention bowling greens, golf courses, churches and country clubs. This is a lifestyle choice, not a holiday - although it may feel like it!

Obviously, selling up your home and moving your life to a residential caravan park is not something to be taken lightly, it is a big deal. Take your time when choosing your plot; it will be your home. Much like finding a house in your current town, do the initial research, do the maths and then make a decision.

If this is a lifestyle you think is right for you, have a browse at our residential plots for sale and see what is out there that takes your fancy. You never know, you might surprise yourself. Book in for a visit or contact our team, and you too could soon be living the dream.
