We recently caught up with the lovely Mrs. Elaine Healey who has put a deposit down on a lovely, new Willerby Hazlewood home in Orchard Park, Cheshire.
She works as a Travel Advisor in a very well-known Travel Company. We had a quick chat with her to know more about about her experience of buying a park home.
Q. What prompted you to choose a park home?
Having lived on a main road for 15 years, and with recent bouts of serious ill health, Robert and I decided we had reached a point in our lives where we are looking for some peace and quiet and our “forever” home.
Q. What was important to ‘get right’?
What was important to us was a peaceful setting, within a safe village type community and with the necessary facilities around us. We also wanted a little outside space to spend time outdoors when the weather permitted, although we didn’t want a garden requiring lots of maintenance.
With a budget in mind, we set out looking for our new home and as a friend of ours knew someone living in a park home, we began to look into the various companies.
Q. How was the journey to finding a park home?
The Wyldecrest website was one of the first we visited and I was impressed by the speed of the live chat response and reaction to queries and appointments.
We didn’t feel pressurised at any time, just supported by the team and the houses were the most reasonably priced and with different house sizes on offer.
The park in Elton was one of the first sites we visited and whilst the home we viewed was beautiful and exceeded our expectations, we didn’t like the position on the site. What we immediately warmed to though, was the site manager Anne, who was so helpful and honest in her feedback.
We visited other park homes with other companies and in other areas of the North West, but something pulled us back to Elton.
Q. How did you choose the exact home?
Whilst looking at another property on a different Wyldecrest site, Anne made us aware of a “beautiful” Willerby home which had literally just been delivered to Elton, but as there were no steps as yet, we were unable to see inside.
We went back to Elton to have a look around the property and were immediately impressed by the diagonal position of the house, at the head of the park and also with an outside area which was bigger than others we had viewed.
We promptly got a call from the Wyldecrest head office to say temporary steps were in place, so we could view inside the home the very next day.
I went to view the inside as Rob was working and was so impressed by the quality and space. The home offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a fully equipped large kitchen inside, I had a quick chat with Rob and then immediately put down a deposit to secure it.
What was perfect was the way Anne and the maintenance guy walked us around the house to get our input into personalising the fencing, existing shrubbery and the creation of a driveway etc. We are so excited about moving into our new park home and we would have no hesitation in recommending Wyldecrest.
Thank you so much Elaine for sharing your experience with us. We look forward to welcoming you to your new ‘forever’ home very soon!
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 106 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.
