Everyone wants to be at the heart of things. It means you can have everything you want and need within easy reach. This is very important when buying a park home as it is somewhere you will probably be living for many years to come.
We all want easy access to goods and services, lots of shops and amenities, frequent bus and train services, that will transport us wherever and whenever we wish to travel.
This freedom is important and one of the best ways of achieving it is to live in, or close to a city The trouble is that this can be a bit demanding with all the noise, stress and pollution that goes with the city life.
The solution is to find an area close enough to allow easy access to all those amenities when required but just far enough away to be in a pleasant setting, protected from all that city hustle and bustle.
Best of both worlds
Earlswood, the location of Oak Tree Farm, has the best of both worlds. On the one hand, this residential park home estate is only 12 miles south-east of Birmingham and located within the city's motorway ring road. Drive on to the nearby A34 or hop on a train at Earlswood station (one mile away) and you can be in the city centre in under half an hour. Head in the opposite direction for less than a mile and you are at the heart of the country’s motorway network, with no fewer than three motorways the M42, 4140 and M6 at your disposal.
On the other hand, looking around Earlswood you would never guess that it was so close to a major metropolis. This is the heart of England - and it shows. The park is bounded by woodland There are nurseries and a farm craft centre close by, which have been popular for fishing since Victorian times.
There has been a park here for several decades. It was purchased by Mr Hartley in 1987 and has had some major refurbishments. Oak Tree is licensed for 70 homes in total.
