They are both 76, an amazing couple young at heart & have lived on this park for a very long time now.
Mr Jewell used to work as a lorry driver before he retired. Mrs Jewell used to let out holiday cottages.
They initially moved on to the original Orchard Park many years ago. However, that park had to be relocated due to the building of a power station & therefore they briefly moved off the park.
They soon realised that they were missing their time on the park, the whole community aspect, the friends they had made and the way of life.
They decided to move back on the park. Wyldecrest Parks have had Orchard Park in their portfolio for the last 8 years and they have lived on it since.
Park life hasn’t changed that much over the years, just our age has! We actually prefer this way of life to the other as we have found a lot in common with a lot of our neighbours and people on the park.
We have a lot of friends on the park & find it so much easier as we are all quite similar-minded & sort of in the same phase of life. It’s a medium-sized park and we wouldn’t say we know each & every resident, but it is an exceptionally friendly community and everyone knows there is someone there to help at any time.
When we first moved in, there wasn’t much to do around the park. But lots of things have come up now, there is actually a luxury Spa within walking distance of the park which is so popular with all us residents! There is a hair-dresser within a very short walk as well, which we frequent as well.
Orchard Residential Park perches on the fringes of the picturesque village of Elton and overlooks open the countryside with delightful views towards the westerly range of the Cheshire Hills that surround Frodsham and Alverney.
Idyllically situated within the original fruit orchards of Elton Manor, Orchard Park really is the perfect place for rest and relaxation and the perfect retirement.
Most of the plots have parking areas and the park is well laid out. There is a friendly community spirit here and an on-site manager with an office that is open daily.
The local shops and medical centre are just a 10-minute stroll away with the main hospital being less than five miles away. Chester, Liverpool and Manchester are also within easy reach.
Our lovely resident park manager – Ann Raywood lives on this park & is happy to share her experiences as well as knowledge to see if this park is the right fit for you. She will be happy to show you around & also share a cup of tea if you would like to have a chat with her on your visit.
