Married in Saltmarshe Castle, now living in Saltmarshe Castle
43 years later!
Meet our Saltmarshe Castle residents, Mrs & Mr. David Payne. David and his wife Carole live in our stunning Saltmarshe Castle residential Park.
Before moving here, they used to live in a 4-bedroom house in Droitwich, Worcestershire. They had been thinking of downsizing for a while as they felt that they needed to move to something smaller and more manageable.
They were looking at local bungalows as they wanted to move into a single-story build.
“We were aware of Saltmarshe Castle Residential Park as we were local and also, surprise-surprise, this is where we got married 43 years ago. So Saltmarshe Castle will always be an extremely special place for us!”
They live local to the area as does most of their family, so in their search for downsizing to a more suitable accommodation, they decided to visit the park. They had seen some signs outside the park mentioning some homes were available and also saw some advertisements on TV which further prompted them to find out more.
“A big surprise was the fact that almost all residents were a similar age to us and also had very similar interests!” says David.
Once they decided that moving on to the park was financially viable and a good lifestyle choice for them, they reserved their home and put their house on the market. They chose an Omar Homes – Colorado, one of Omar’s signature models and still as popular as it was 50 years ago.
To their delight, their home was sold after only 4 days on the market!
The whole moving process was easy, fast and stress-free. They have been living in their new home for more than 6 months now and they say, “The best part of living on this park is the amazing views, scenic walks and that all our neighbors are of the same age and all have similar interests. We still remember our reception day which was held in these grounds and it seems like it was only yesterday, we have so much to tell and show to our family and friends”. For their daily groceries, they use the local butchers, bakers, Tesco’s and also online delivery services.
They mentioned that they used Wyldecrest buses that take all the park residents to local events. Recently 3 mini-buses took all park residents to the Bromyard Christmas lights switch on and to the nearby golf course.
“We just love the location of our plot as it offers beautiful views; it is very private but not segregated. We feel lucky that we made such an excellent choice and we would say value for money –wise, we couldn’t be more pleased, 6 stars out of 5!”
Saltmarshe Castle Residential Park is located in a peaceful and breath-taking woodland setting, approximately 2.5 miles north of the town of Bromyard on the borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. It is situated with south facing views overlooking the Bromyard Downs and Malvern Hills.
This park is situated in the endless grounds of Saltmarshe Castle, a former country house and estate first owned by the Higginson family and then through the generations to the Barnaby family in 1946. Although the Castle itself was demolished many years ago, in 1955, parts of the outer walls and turrets still remain, together with various outbuildings, stables, ice house, and cider wheel, making this park a unique place to live.
Bromyard, the nearest town, is where you will find all your local amenities, doctors, dentist, optician and vets along with the local shops.
The area is renowned for its scenic beauty and many ancient towns and cities, including Hereford, Worcester, Gloucester and Leominster, all accessible by the local bus services in Bromyard.
Within the local surroundings of this gorgeous and historic park, you can find a wide range of farms, many of them selling locally grown fresh produce and ingredients, as well as some of the most amazing centres, family restaurants with homemade food and handcraft gift shops.
