There are lots of great reasons for choosing to live in a residential park home. One major factor that entices Britons to swap bricks and mortar for a deluxe static caravan is money. Moving frees up cash so you can spend it doing the things you love. So whatever your passions, here’s our pick of residential park homes in the UK that will let you indulge in your favourite pastimes.
1) Best for … fish and chips
This year’s award for best fish and chippy went to Miller’s Fish and Chips in Haxby, North Yorkshire. Choose one of the prestigious park homes at Lower Dunsforth Residential Park and you’ll be only a few miles up the road from this hot spot for battered goods.
