Frequently Asked Questions

The short answer is they don't! Our homes look and feel the same as a conventional bungalow with all the mod cons you would expect, such as double glazing, gas central heating and broadband. The difference between the two is in the way they are built. Homes are constructed off-site  using a steel or timber frame. The exterior finish provides an attractive and weatherproof exterior. All new residential park homes are upgraded to specific requirements to meet the British Standard BS 3632 Specification for Residential homes and Residential Lodges so you can rest assured they are built to the highest safety standards and specifications taking into account stability, ventilation and energy efficiency.
Yes! You can live in your home all year round with absolutely no restrictions. We are a full time residential park so the property that you purchase becomes your full time main residence. We know this can be a worry as some other parks only have a holiday license so there are restrictions on how long people can stay in their homes and they have to find somewhere else to go for the rest of the year. This is not the case with Fir Hill Park. You can stay in you home all year round with no worry and no restrictions.

Wow, where do we start! There are so many benefits. One of the major benefits that attracts people is the cost. By downsizing to a park bungalow most people free up equity tied up in their existing property. Your monthly overheads are also reduced so you have more money at your disposal and can start enjoying your life with no financial worries.

Other benefits include the community feel of living with like minded people in a peaceful location. The majority of people are retired so are older people who enjoy the peace and tranquillity and living their life to the full away from the hustle, bustle and pressure of urban living.

Modern homes are solidly built with stunning interiors. They are very easy to maintain too as we take care of maintenance around the park leaving you even more time to enjoy doing the things you love.

Of course, one of the great attractions of Fir Hill Park is our amazing location, we are close to so much stunning countryside and areas of outstanding natural beauty and a host of nearby places to visit.

The price of your home will depend on the model of home you request as well as the furniture and soft furnishings that you purchase to go in your home. We have 40 plots available at Fir Hill Park, so there are a wide choice of locations. A plot can be secured with a deposit, and you can then decide upon the exact model of home you wish to place on your plot.
Home owners pay a pitch fee, or ground rent to the park owners for the plot on which their home is sited. This is usually charged on a monthly basis and covers the running costs associated with the business including maintenance of the communal areas and landscaping, roads and such factors as security and electricity for streetlights, sewage and maintenance. Other costs are much the same (or slightly less) compared to living in a bricks and mortar house: Council Tax is lower in a home as they are classed as Class A band. Modern park homes are built with energy efficiency in mind, so energy costs are generally lower than a traditional house. Other services such as telephone line, satellite TV are purchased directly from suppliers such as BT.
