Like Father like Son: A Wyldecrest story

Mr & Mrs Doody moved into our very popular Old Rectory Residential Park on 18th September.

We had a quick catch-up with Paul just to see how he was getting on.

It has been absolutely brilliant! Our only regret, we wish we had done it sooner!

We first started looking at park homes because my dad lives in another Wyldecrest residential park! Yes, he lives in the Surrey Hills residential park in Guildford, Surrey. He couldn’t recommend park living enough!

So I always knew that I would downsize to a residential park development & I knew I would choose Wyldecrest.

We looked around the various park locations – we were spoilt for choices but I always wanted to be near the beach & Cornwall has been a firm favourite. We used to holiday in Cornwall all our childhood & it is like a dream location for us.

Kim & I had our heart set on the Old Rectory development but it was at full capacity. Then a sale fell through so a home became available so we didn’t waste a minute & reserved the home right away!

We both work in caring for the elderly so it was easy to relocate at work.

We have 2 lovely French bull-dogs called Tilly & Paris. The development had to be pet-friendly, there was no two ways about it!

So basically Old Rectory ticked all our boxes & we moved quickly!

We were living in a cottage before & when we have moved to our lovely new park home – we have managed to pay off our mortgage & have no other bills or loans to feel stressed about!
Plus we have freed up extra cash which has made the move so brilliant!

The community spirit on the park is unbeatable. We have made so many friends in the 2 weeks we have been here! Everyone goes out of their way to talk, help, suggest their preferred shops, restaurants & recommendations

There are so many local shops & the beach is so close that it’s our favourite place to go when we have a spare minute

You know what; we lived in a house all these years & hardly knew more than 2 neighbours.

In these 2 weeks here, we have met all residents & found friends for life! Everyone is in a similar age/situation & so friendly!

We can’t recommend it enough & wish we had done it sooner!

Thank you so much Paul! We wish you health & happiness in your forever home!
