About the Property and the Park

If you are investigating the idea of moving into a park home and are wondering just what it would be like, how about visiting our property?

We are confident that you would be suitably impressed - not only with the quality of the available accommodation - but with the park site itself.

Family problems have meant that, very sadly, we have had to leave what we had intended was to be our final home, so it is vacant and ready for someone else to move in and love it as we did.

As you can see from the photograph it is wooden cladded and is, in fact, one of the largest homes on the site. The garden is pretty generous too. As No 1 is situated on a corner, there are lawns and flower beds on both sides.

There is a big garage outside and a parking space for 2 vehicles, 3 at a squash. We have left behind a really long garden hose, a keen gardener will need one, and a half-full compost bin. Compost is needed because the soil is sandy and anyway the worms might come in really handy if you decide to join the fishing club!

The local birds know where to find the worms too. Talking about wild life - there is a lot of it at The Elms - something that we loved. Once, a duck was nesting right outside our kitchen in one of our plant pots! Now the kitchen is perhaps the one room you would most likely want to add your own stamp. Whilst it is quite big, has oodles of storage space, and we have left behind both a Which? recommended dishwasher and tall refrigerator, it is a bit 'old fashioned'. The asking price for the home reflects the possible need to brighten it up a little, possibly with the purchase of a new built-in oven. We have left everything really sparkling and clean, but the oven is ready for retirement. The Neff gas hob is great though.

We laid new flooring in the dining room and hall last year, both rooms being newly decorated at the same time. Hopefully, you will like it and the co-ordinating curtains if you decide to visit.

Both the double bedrooms have en-suite facilities which is really useful when visitors come. The smaller of the two bedrooms needs redecorating.

Stroll into the really generous lounge and you will be met by wonderful views over the park, imitation lakes and shrubbery. We were once told that it is the best view on The Elms.

The Elms is peaceful, beautiful, comfortable and very secure. There are countryside walks, inns, restaurants, golf courses and historic sites nearby, and lots of wild life. Talking about wild life at The Elms - it was something that we loved. Ducks and geese galore, swans, stoats, red legged partridges, pheasants, herons, all sorts of other birds and hares can be seen regularly. The owners of the site have recently introduced bee hives and there is a pleasant walk inside the park where wild flowers have been introduced. The walk can be extended too, to take in a path alongside the Fossdyke canal and its flotilla of canal boats. The nesting season must be in full swing now. It's great watching the development of the canal cygnets and others on the beautiful lakes. The parents often parade the young goslings, ducklings, pheasants and red legged partridges around the homes and the wide grassed and landscaped areas.

The Elms has received David Bellingham Awards recently as one of the most environmentally friendly sites in the UK.
