4-bedroom home to a park home bungalow: downsizing down the road

We lived in Penwortham for over 40 years and had quite a large four-bedroom house with a large garden which needed a lot of maintenance.

As we were getting older, we decided that we would look forward to an easier life with a lot less maintenance and a nice easy retirement living. So, we looked into Park home living and found Penwortham Park on our doorstep which was ideal for us as we did not want to move away from family and friends.

We bought a brand-new park home and moved in 8 years ago. We absolutely love living here. The house is low maintenance and the garden is manageable.

We have some very nice neighbours and even some good friends we have known for many years moved here too.

Unfortunately, my husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and in reflection of that we found that we made the best decision to downsize. My husband was a very keen gardener but sadly can’t manage it anymore so I have to sort the garden out which I enjoy doing.

We were here on the park when Undercover Boss was filmed. We weren’t really involved in it, but was great watching the show after ?

I am a volunteer for our local St Catherine’s hospice and have been doing that for nearly 8 years which I enjoy a great deal.

Thank you so much Annamarie. Your garden is absolutely beautiful. I am so glad that your husband and neighbours urged you to submit your entry!

Wish you lots of health and happiness in your home!

Penwortham Residential Park provides an environment where you can relax in quiet and secure surroundings yet benefit from living in a vibrant community.

Penwortham Residential Park is situated in the residential suburb of Penwortham, approximately 2.5 miles south of Preston City Centre which offers excellent shopping and general amenities. Despite being close to the busy centre of Preston, the park itself is both quiet and secluded.

We have a brand-new Willerby Hazlewood Park Home ready to view in this park.


If you are interested – please book a viewing as soon as possible. There is also a few plots which can be viewed for ordering a bespoke park home.
