A park home (sometimes referred to as a mobile home), is built to British Standard 3632 (BS3632). It is a timber framed residential property, suitable for year-round living and can be used as your main UK residence if sited on a park or location with a residential licence. Residents are protected with security of tenure by the Mobile Homes Act if the Park is registered with a residential licence.

A holiday home is often built to EN1647 which is a less robust build standard in terms of the overall structure and level of insulation. Holiday homes are only suitable for seasonal use due to the lower level of insulation and build quality, however many can be upgraded to BS3632 standard.

By using our Find a Park tool, you can enter your ideal location and a member of our friendly team can assist you in locating a park (or parks) that will suit your individual needs & taste.

Each of our park homes will have their own individual exterior and interior designs which can be altered. In addition to this we offer a bespoke home design service giving you the opportunity to make the home truly yours.

All of our park homes & lodges can be built in a variety of lengths and widths (up to a legal maximum of 65ft x 22ft) to suit the plot you have chosen. All of our standard layouts include lounge, dining room/area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. All of our standard homes feature at least two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one typically being en-suite). Our extensive range of floor plans includes homes with up to four bedrooms, studies, entrance halls, hobby rooms and utility rooms. However, if none of our standard layouts suit your specific requirements, we will happily modify our plans or start afresh to design and manufacture a home that suits you.

All our homes are built in accordance with the latest BS3632 standard and carry a 12 months manufacturer's warranty on the entire home and its contents as supplied at purchase by Willerby. Willerby is a GoldShield registered manufacturer, so if you buy a park home or lodge from us and site it on one of the many residential parks that are also GoldShield registered, you can benefit from the cover the warranty offers; you just have to register first. The home must registered by the park or owner when it is commissioned, which allows the home will benefit from a 10 year structural warranty.

A warranty of 5 years is issued for the sealed units, and our boilers and appliances are all A grade rated and have a manufacturer’s warranty of 5 years for parts 2 years for labour. 

This depends on the model, size and internal specification of the park home or lodge selected. Our extensive range of homes are designed to suit a variety of budgets but still always offer the quality and style people expect from us. As with all property, location is important with homes in the South East typically being more expensive than homes situated further North. Parks near the coast or by rivers and lakes typically carry a premium as do parks in areas of natural beauty such as Devon, Cornwall or the Lake District.

The price of individual homes will also vary depending on the park amenities and the size and the location on park of the plot you have chosen. Plots near water or with extensive views tend to carry a premium. If you have a particular budget in mind, please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.

You will also have to consider site fees, utilities, transportation, maintenance and any optional extras you have added

The home price includes a fitted kitchen complete with appliances, bedrooms with built in furniture and/or walk-in wardrobes, bathrooms, lounge suite, dining suite, carpets and vinyl, curtains, soft furnishings including bed, bedding and wall mounted headboards.  You will find all these details on your floor plan and specification for your home. There is also the facility to add additional features to your home - we can discuss this when you visit our design studio.

Once you have finalised the specification of your home and both yourselves and your park have signed it off we can start building it. The length of time you have to wait for your home will vary depending on the season and how complex your design is - our team will give your park an estimated delivery date once the order has been placed.

We try to accommodate all of your needs where we can but we would review this on a case-by-case basis to ensure we comply with legislation and build standards.

Our Oslo Wall System™ is designed to be strong. First of all, it looks nice. Secondly, the interior finish is very different to normal plasterboard as it's super strong. You don’t need to worry about where the joists are to drill into (just check for electric cables!) or use a rawlplug to keep in the nail or screw. Our new board can hold up to 40kg in weight from one hook – that means you could put a bracket on the wall and put your bike on it! How tidy is that? And lastly, it also can be painted over and over again or be wall-papered if you’re a budding Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

Insulated timber frame construction is a naturally warm construction - unlike bricks and blocks. The insulation used within the construction of all of our homes is extremely high quality and energy-efficient. Full central heating is installed as standard with energy-efficient combination boilers.

You will need to get permission to site a mobile home from your Local Authority. We can supply you with a floor plan and elevation for your home along with a service plan which the Local Authority will need in order to consider your application. The best initial course of action would be for you to have an informal conversation with a planning officer at your Local Authority who will indicate if permission is likely to be granted. If the planning officer has specific requirements we can help incorporate these into the design of your home.

There is a wide variety of colours and cladding systems available. These can be viewed in our design studio and discussed with our team. All park homes are available in a rendered finish, timber clad or with a variety of low maintenance claddings. Please ask your park before you set your heart on a particular finish as they may only allow homes in certain finishes or colours, and may also be governed by planning rules and or stipulations in their site licence.

Our homes use the NGPH (Next Generation Park Home) steel chassis. It is coated in a protective paint to prolong the life of the chassis. The construction and design of the chassis consists of two robust "i-beam" members, fully welded to form a single length beam. Heavy duty cross members are them fixed into place by using specially designed brackets. This has been designed to confirm with Code of Practice 501.
