Recommended Park Scheme A Success

The Recommended Park scheme, launched by Sell My Group last year, is a huge success. Having launched the scheme in the autumn to give those looking to invest in a park home more confidence when dealing with park operators.

Our Group, which owns the online platform Sell My Park Home, Sell My Lodge, Sell My Caravan, Sell My Holiday Home and Sell My Houseboat, has seen interest in the scheme soar.

Great news for park operators

Justin Allitt, CEO, explains: “Our Recommended Park badge is recognised as a sign of quality. Consumers looking to invest in a park home know when they see this sign that they can trust the site operator to be open and transparent. Hence, interest in those sites which display the badge has increased.”

For everyone involved in the scheme, it has been immensely rewarding to see park operators benefit. Sell My Group is, therefore, delighted that to reveal it is an outstanding success, and will be working hard to extend it throughout 2018.”

Recognition for family-run parks

The scheme has heaped praise on family-run parks. Among those to gain Recommended Park status is Lamaleach Park, in Lancashire. The residential retirement park, set in a semi rural location in the village of Freckleton, near Lytham, gained the award in recognition of its high quality services and well-maintained facilities. The park proudly displays its Recommended Park badge on the homepage of its website.

Lamaleach Park is a great example of praise where praise is due. This superbly-run park is up-front about everything it offers. As well as providing first-class retirement homes, the park clearly displays its rules on its website so anyone new to park home living knows exactly what to expect.

Lamaleach Park is also recommended for its evolving lifestyle living ‘offer’. It has tailored its site and homes to meet changing consumer needs, providing bang up-to-date retirement options, including new developments.

About the Recommended Park scheme

Sell My Group’s Recommended Park scheme was launched in October 2017. The aim was to recognise great park operators and give consumers the confidence to invest in park homes. The scheme went ‘live’ at a time when interest in the lifestyle living sector was at its highest ever.

The number of people retiring to park homes, or investing in holiday homes at parks, has risen year-on-year by 10 per cent, according to industry experts. With interest expected to continue to grow, Sell My Group took the initiative to recognise park operators who demonstrate consistent levels of excellence. Where consumers see the Recommended Park sign, they can be guaranteed of high quality services and accurate information.

Driving up standards, recognising excellence

Sell My Group believes accuracy is very important in the park home sector and that the Recommended Park scheme duly rewards those who ensure property details are completely accurate and not misleading.

Among other Sell My Groups Recommended Parks in the South of England is the exclusive development Port Werburgh Residential Park in Kent, with spectacular views over Port Werburgh Marina and the River Medway.

In Cornwall, St.Tinney Farm Park is located in its own 34 acre estate.

Located in Central England in Warwickshire, is another of Sell My Groups Recommended Parks, Welford Chase, which nestles on the banks of the river Avon and is just five miles away from the historical town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

All three of these recommended parks details can be seen on the front page of the Sell My Groups website.
