Gloucestershire for retirement living

July 6, 2021 4:31 am


If you are reaching that age where retirement is looming you may be starting to think about your living arrangements.  For many an escape to the country is what is required but with rural costs rising it’s hard to see how you can do that. The house prices of cottages and home means that any sale of your urban home will see the equity take quite a hit and do you really want another mortgage? Much better to look at some sweet affordable Park Homes. A Park Home Life means you’ll  have a protected community of similar aged people in a friendly open environment. You’ll have everything that Gloucestershire has to offer as well.
