Living in our Residential Park Homes

Living in our Residential Park Homes

Park home living is becoming an increasingly popular choice for many people, offering an attractive lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of urban living. Many of our residents are retirees who have chosen to make the most of life by releasing equity in the regular homes and relocating to one of our parks surrounded by friendly, like-minded people in beautiful Scottish settings. Our residential parks are designed exclusively for the over 50s and offer a low-cost alternative to living in traditional homes and an easy way to downsize into a more manageable property.

The Very Best Residential Caravan Parks in Scotland

Richmond Wight currently have two residential parks in Scotland with the most popular being Riverview based close to Inverness. This tranquil park is set in one of the most picturesque regions of the UK offering the ideal balance between peaceful countryside living but conveniently close enough to a wealth of local amenities nearby. The historic city of Inverness is within short driving distance of Riverview and is home to a wide selection of shops and restaurants as well as being the home of the world famous Highland Games.

There are also plenty of nearby attractions such as the magnificent Balvenie Castle, one of the oldest stone castles in Scotland along with the remains of the once mighty Elgin Cathedral. The whole area is awash with scenic trails and miles of unspoiled beaches to explore as well as the domination Grampian Mountains towards the west. And, if golf is your thing, you can also follow in the footsteps of the legendary Old Tom Morris at Moray Golf Club, one of Scotland’s finest links courses just five minutes away. The area is also famed for it’s fishing, with trout and salmon available all year round in the fast flowing Findhorn River.

One of our other thriving residential parks in Scotland is Glendevon, surrounded by the incredible scenery of the Perthshire countryside. Set amongst the heather covered mountains, this is the perfect residential park for outdoor lovers with wildlife in abundance and hundreds of miles of waymarked walking trails to explore. Perthshire is known as “Big Tree Country” with some of the tallest trees in the UK and we are also right next door to the fantastic Cairngorms National Park where you can see all the best sights.

Glendevon truly is the perfect base to explore the heart of Scotland from with numerous towns within a short distance including Gleneagles and Auchterarder as well as the city of Perth itself where you’ll find a huge selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and theatres. You can even get to Edinburgh and Glasgow within an hour by car or by train! And if that still isn’t enough, Perthshire itself is also home to all manner of other attractions including Roman forts, medieval castles and a whole host of whisky distilleries.

Choosing Your Residential Park Home

Once you’ve decided on which park you would like to live on, the next step is picking your actual home. Our lodges are designed to be comfortable, functional and stylish while providing residents with everything you would expect to find in a regular house. The lodges are fully furnished and co-ordinated throughout along with double glazing and central heating. Most come with patio doors and modern galley style kitchens with integrated appliances although design does vary from lodge to lodge. And, if you like the look of one the models available for immediate purchase such as The Locksley, you can get free a hot tub decking and worth over £10,000!

Park living is a much lower cost alternative to living in a traditional home and we specialise in making the transition as easy as possible. As interest rates on savings and pensions are at an all time low, a lot of people are choosing to unlock the equity in their homes and re-invest in one of our residential park homes. Our home exchange service makes this even easier, as we can introduce you to a cash buyer cutting out all the expensive estate agent and admin fees. Some of our residents have even moved in within seven days of contacting us making our service one of the fastest and efficient available.
