Buying a Park Home in Cornwall

So, you’re coming up to retirement, the kids have long gone and are raising families of their own; the grandchildren are busy with school; the mortgage is fully paid and you finally have the time and freedom to enjoy your surroundings; how about choosing to enjoy your retirement on a residential park in Cornwall? Here’s a bit more about some of the stunning destinations that would be on your doorstep.


Stunning Truro

As the most southerly City, it’s a location not as well visited as the likes of some of our other suggestions, but it’s a cultural gem in Cornwall’s heart. An ideal area to set down roots away from the more touristy destinations in the South West, but shrouded with impressive architecture, cosmopolitan cafes and restaurants, historical sites such as Truro Cathedral and not to mention its vibrant shopping centre. Have a look at park homes at Truro Heights, a new park just a short bus or car journey away from the city centre and a stone’s throw away - metaphorically speaking – from Newquay and Falmouth.
