Default Looking for park home site in Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, West Sussex

Hi all -

We're looking to buy a park home on a fully residential (not holiday centre) permanent Park home/static caravan site somewhere in the south/southwest of England in the coming months.
Areas: Dorset, Hampshire, South Somerset, South Wiltshire, West Sussex.

At the moment we're researching to try to shortlist Park home sites in this region that would be in the running for us, and we could do with your help!

I'm 58, wife is 50, and we have one small dog.
Looking for an all year residential site in or near to a town or village (so not way out in the countryside), and not right on the coast.
Definitely do NOT want a site with all sorts of facilities (pool, bar, etc), but just a simple quiet residential site.

The actual static we are after on such a site would be: Minimum 2 beds, ideally 3 beds. Must have parking. Must have, (or allow) a large shed on the pitch. Must be on level or relatively level (ie not steeply sloping) area.
A unit requiring some updating would be fine, but perhaps worth mentioning that anything we do look to buy WILL BE subject to a full static caravan engineers survey before we purchase.

We are cash buyers, with no chain, and we are looking to buy between now and Spring 2019.

If anyone knows of any suitable sites in the areas I've listed, we'd love to hear about them, name, description, location, and even sat nav co-ordinates maybe.

Many thanks.

Bruce and Kathy.

to the forum.
We do have at least one member of the forum who lives in a residential park and Hopefully, he will see your post and offer advice. He is well versed in what you need to know. So he is the guy to offer you the best advice. Unfortunately, I think he is based in the North West.

I think it's fair to say that most members of the forum have their vans on holiday parks and these are the parks, judging by your comments that have more facilities on them and are not for you. In addition to the facilities, it isn't legal to live permanently on a holiday park but you seem to have that covered.

Hopefully, you will receive good advice. Good luck in your search.
