The park is located in the small market town of Watton in rural Norfolk. Approaching it down a leafy lane which runs alongside an ancient stone church you could be confused into thinking that you were in a village in the heart of the countryside. It is the park’s enviable location that is part of the attraction for the owners who benefit from country style living whilst being just a stones throw from the many amenities that the local town centre provides.
For over twenty years the park has been home for semi retired and fully retired residents. All have come to Redhill Park searching for the ideal place to enjoy their retirement years. For most it was important that they felt comfortable and secure in their surroundings, others having downsized were looking forward to pottering in a smaller and more manageable garden. Being able to maintain a level of independence whilst still retaining helpful contact from thoughtful neighbours was also high on the wish list of many.
Achieving this and still being king and queen of their very own castle is what residents are currently enjoying. Strolling around the park it is evident just how residents take pride in their homes, during the summer each plot is covered in a magical display of plants and colours, so taken with caring for their gardens the residents compete in an annual best garden competition with the winners benefiting from a free holiday courtesy of the Lifestyle Living Group.
Although the park is a few minutes walk from the centre of Watton the impression from the surroundings is that you are in a small country village populated by similar aged and like minded residents. Everyone that you meet will stop to say hello and asking for help is always received with a positive response. The park is very much a retirement village catering solely for the over 50’s, it is child free other than when the grandchildren visit. Pets are allowed and the many dog friendly walks around the park make for good exercise for all concerned.
Watton is a typical small country town its shopping centre although compact easily caters for every day needs. Wednesday is market day and a variety of stalls line the high street selling everything from locally grown vegetables, plants, fish from the nearby east coast and cakes and pies that are guaranteed to put on a few pounds. A larger retail opportunity can be found in Norwich which is less than an hour away by a regular bus service and even less by car.
