When you’re coming up to retirement and are finally able to do all those things you've wanted to do for years, like seeing more of the grandkids and spending your time relaxing rather than rushing off to the daily commute, you might also find yourself rattling around in a house that's simply too big for you and too hard to keep up.
But you’re far too young at heart and independent to be ready for a retirement home, and still want to be in the thick of things and out and about, not spending all day in front of the television with your knitting.
With retirement, even with an excellent pension, you may also experience a drop in income, which could leave you with not nearly enough free capital to help out your family, and go to all those places you and your husband have never visited but promised you would.
So, what to do?
Happily, there is an option, which should more than exceed your expectations. Why not consider buying a luxury furnished Park home in Cambridgeshire? Here are ten reasons why you should part exchange your home for a Yarwell Mill Country Park Park home:
1. Part exchange your home
Let’s start with the practicalities. How can you make this happen, and how are you going to free up the income that’s tied up in your house, so you can take that holiday you always dreamed of and help your family?
We offer the Leisure Parks UK Home Exchange Scheme, where you get full market value for your house, with no stamp duty or estate agent fees when you part exchange your home. And there’s no chain, so you’re not waiting around for other buyers to sort things out before you can move.
When your house has sold, you pay for your new park home, and keep the difference between the price of your old house and the price of your new luxury fully furnished park home, leaving you with cash in your pocket to do all those things you’ve wanted to do for years.
2. Design your own home
While you can choose from one of our standard home designs, why not decide exactly how your home should look, guided by our expert home builders?
Once the outside is done, our bespoke fitting service can give you that dream kitchen you always wanted, or the perfect master bedroom with en suite. The possibilities are endless.
3. High quality homes
We take great care with our home builds. Not only do we pay attention to every last detail, our team is focused on giving you the highest possible quality in your build, for a beautiful home that will last and last.
4. Low bills
Every park home is in Band A for council tax, so you’ll always pay the lowest possible amount. Not only that, but each home is heavily insulated and highly energy efficient, so your house will always be warm, and your bills every month will be lower.
5. Low maintenance
With the quality of our builds and the high standard of the modern materials we use, there’ll be very little need for maintenance, so no more struggling up and down ladders or carting heavy toolboxes about.
6. Part of a community
Every park home is set within easy reach of your neighbours, giving a lovely community feel and ensuring there’s always someone around if you have a problem or fall ill. If you love to chat and keep up with all the local goings on, you’ll never be left isolated here.
7. Keep up with the kids
With such a beautiful setting and plenty to see and do, your children and grandchildren will be able to visit and enjoy the community as much as you do.
8. Like-minded people
At Yarwell Mill Country Park, the community is mostly made up of people aged 55 years and up, so you’re sure to find people with similar experiences, who remember all the things you do about how the world has changed. Make new friends, enjoy the company and relax in the stunning surroundings.
9. Beautiful countryside
Yarwell Mill homes are set in a country park, with a five acre lake, the River Nene close by and pleasant walks around the park, spotting the local birds and wildlife. What a way to wake up every morning, with peace and quiet, and views like that.
10. So much to see and do
Fishing on the lake, boat moorings on the river, amazing scenery and walks for miles - and all of that is right on your doorstep. You can also visit the famous Nene valley railway, which is only a six minute walk from where you live.
You’re near Peterborough, with its excellent shopping centre, Norman cathedral, museum and more, and close to Rutland Water, Bedford Reserve, the charming streets of Wansford Village and Burghley House. And, if you’re feeling really adventurous, check out Sibson Airfield for a parachute jump!
