Are you over 50 and starting to think about retirement? Then you’ve probably thought about the possibility of downsizing or moving somewhere a little more peaceful. Residential parks offer the best of both worlds in this sense. They are much more manageable than standard homes and generally placed in picturesque, semi-rural locations. And if you’re considering buying on a residential park in Cheshire, then our stunning site, Riverside Park in Whitegate, is ideal.
Locals to the Cheshire area are well aware of the numerous offerings that it has. Whether you’re an adventurer, a lover of fine cuisine, a home-body or a culture craver, Cheshire has it all.
It’s home to Chester Zoo (one of the top 3 zoos in the entire country) which makes it perfect for animal lovers, and especially those of you with grandchildren. What’s more, the easily accessible and breath-taking Delamere Forest is a fantastic place to go for some peace and quiet.
Cheshire is also home to one of the most extensive canal networks in all of England, with both the River Dee and the River Weaver running straight through it. And if you love history, then the Roman city of Chester allows you to walk the walls and explore the ruins of old Roman gardens and buildings.
Chester is also a great day out. With stunning architecture, traditional cobbled floors and many Roman-inspired activities and events, you’ll likely feel the difference from most city centres. Fun fact: Chester is the only place in the UK to still hold the tradition of having a town crier! It really is one of a kind.
Cheshire also gives you access to Cheshire Oaks in Ellesmere Port. Here, you can find anything and everything you need at an outlet price, plus some tasty eateries and other fun places like the Vue cinema, Ten Pin bowling alley and Blue Planet Aquarium. As well as this, Cheshire benefits from many high-quality golf courses, fishing spots and walking routes. Whatever your interests, Cheshire is sure to have something for you.
Of course, there’s so much more to see and do than just these few things. And you can experience them all when buying on a residential park in Cheshire.
Park life has many benefits for those over 50. For starters, the 50+ restriction means that you can once again re-live that proper, communal feeling of times gone by. Nowadays, everybody’s stuck on their phones! (Although, if you love your phone time, we do have cracking wifi). Everybody looks out for one another and you’ll never struggle to find good conversation.
Aside from the great community spirit, you’ll also benefit from buying on a residential park in other ways. For example, you’ll be able to free up some money to enjoy retirement. Park homes are also less costly than your traditional brick-and-mortar homes, so you’ll arrive at the park with quite the nest egg.
What’s more, park homes are much easier to clean and manage. This might not sound too revolutionary at 50, but it will be a much-appreciated quality as you grow older. This is because they’re built to replicate a bungalow-style home, which yet again, you might appreciate as you get older – no stairs!
And finally, a huge benefit for many of our current residents is the peace and quiet that park life offers. In general, residential parks are located out of the way of the daily hustle and bustle. This means that you’ll be able to enjoy peace and quiet with gorgeous, natural views, yet still be near to all the amenities that you need and enjoy. In fact, Riverside Park is only a 15-minute drive away from Northwich town centre and 10 minutes from Winsford.
Riverside Park is set in an idyllic, semi-rural location on the edge of the stunning River Weaver. We benefit from excellent public transport routes and there is always someone on site if you need assistance or a chat. Not only that, but we strive to create ideal living spaces for our residents, constantly looking for the best ways to improve and maintain the park. And currently, we have 8 brand new luxury plots available.
If you’d like to purchase one our stunning, luxury park homes, have a look at our brochures and contact us on 0800 772 0011, or email us at [email protected] and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
If you are thinking of changing your lifestyle and are 50+ with no children, we highly recommend that you put your name down for one of the new homes that will be on the park once the improvements have been done.
I bought my new home in March 2007. I chose Delamere Grove partly because of the unusual layout of the park, e.g. with every plot being different.
As residents of Delamere Grove Park we find this a very pleasant place to live. Being in a rural area of Cheshire it has much to offer.
