We caught up with Mr Thomas Johnson today, he moved into his Regency Park home last Thursday so it’s been a week. We had earlier had a chat with him when he put his deposit down on his home in the last week of February.
Thomas & Lorraine have been busy settling down, they still have bits left to do. Let’s hear it from them
It’s been a great week. Obviously the lockdown situation isn’t ideal but we have boxes to unpack & settle so we have been rather busy.
We are waiting to sort out a shed on our plot to get some additional storage for our garden things & some other bits & pieces.
We have managed to meet up & have a chat (from a safe distance) with many of the park residents – everyone is super friendly & so helpful! Literally everyone tries to help everyone – it’s a very reassuring feeling.
I have been helping out by cutting all the grass around my plot as well – just making sure the whole park looks as good as possible : )
We are both looking forward to a peaceful retirement & even though we haven’t managed to venture out to trips yet, we are hopeful of having a great summer.
We are also looking forward to our family visiting soon as well. Since we bought a preloved home, we want to get our carpets changed. My son & nephew will be helping us to lay the new carpets & hopefully we can sort that out soon.
Other than that all good – we love the move & we look forward to normal life after the lockdown & start exploring everything that this beautiful place has to offer.
Thank you Mr Johnson, wish you good luck with the settling in & a great life full of health & happiness in your ‘forever home’
Moving to a Park Home: My journey Part I
My wife & I live in Birmingham in a town-house spread over 3 floors. We had been thinking about downsizing into an easier to navigate bungalow which didn’t have any stairs.
I used to lay floors for a living buy recently have had major problems with my back. Basically my doctors told me that I had to stop else there were high chances that I would end up in a wheelchair. My wife has a problem with her knee & would need a new one at some point. Going up & down two flights of stairs does take a toll!
We saw some advertisements for park homes & decided to research them. We searched online, saw Wyldecrest Parks & visited one of your parks which was near to us.
It was evident that park homes were offering a very viable option to downsize & offered a good bungalow-style construct as well.
After my research, I decided that we definitely needed a park home but in a park which offered more value for my money. The price of these homes goes up & down based on the areas & I was not actually fussed about being in a particular part of the country.
Based on getting more for my budget, we visited Westover Park in Whitland & not only did we get a 2-bedroom bungalow for less than our actual budget, we actually loved the park. The area is beautiful as well & we could easily visualise living in the park.
We feel like we are going on an adventure as we don’t know the local area, don’t know anyone on the park either. However, I make friends very fast & from my visits, I think I will have a good circle of friends soon.
We love travelling, whether it’s California to Hawaii to now Pembrokeshire – we can’t wait to explore new places.
My home is now under offer & I expect to complete it in the next few weeks. I am hoping to have money left over in the bank after finishing the payment for my new park home & that’s a great feeling!
The park home bungalow we have chosen – a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom, gorgeous Omar Regency bungalow is ready & waiting in the park already.
We will be taking some of our furniture with us & basically we are just waiting for the moving day now.
Mr Thomas Johnson
Thank you Mr Johnson for sharing your experience with us. We look forward to welcoming you to your new park home very soon.
A cute, friendly residential park with a host of amenities & some of South Wales most beautiful beaches at its doorstep.
Carmarthenshire is less than a 15 minute drive away and is a great day out! It has a lovely shopping centre with Debenhams and Marks & Spencer’s, quaint boutiques and Banks and restaurants!
Lovely beach towns like Tenby are only 25 minutes by train. The train station is a 10-minute walk from the park and it’s all a level walk, so easy on the legs!
We have brand new homes available to view on the park
