Downsizing Is the Key to Happiness

We lived in a detached house in Norden, near Rochdale, Lancs, in the North of England. We are both retired and considered selling up and moving into a Park Home.

We also wanted to live in a place with a warmer climate and visited Paignton in Devon.

We discovered there was a Park Home site called Beechdown Park that had vacant plots.

In April 2021 we viewed the plots available and decided to purchase an Omar Newmarket home to put on Plot 3. In December 2021 we moved into our brand-new Home.

Since then we have had a decking area built and we have employed some groundworkers to sort out a garden area and provide fence, gates, steps, paving stones, astro turf etc.

We have planted many pots with plants and flowers and our garden now looks wonderful and has been admired by many residents on the site.

There is not much actually to do on the site itself but we have made a number of friends. There is a thatched pub over the road we have been to several times. A couple we are friends with go with us sometimes to this pub for Sunday dinner!

The Park is situated ideally and is only 2 miles from the seafront. There are several supermarkets and plenty of places nearby to visit. We love it here and so does our dog Waffle!
