At Barton Park Homes, we are, shall we say, somewhat biased when it comes to our parks. Not least because all of them are beautifully located in truly stunning settings.
Here are 7 reasons why we think Lancashire, and Willowgrove Leisure Park & Fishery in particular, is the perfect place to retire and spend those ‘golden years’.
Location Location Location
Willowgrove Park is superbly located, just a stone’s throw away from the Victorian charms of Fleetwood, the quaint market town of Poulton le Fylde and Blackpool, the glitzy seaside resort which needs no introduction. So well located, in 2015, the FY6 postcode was declared the 5th most desirable UK postcode to live in by Royal Mail.
We have a great community of like-minded people at Willowgrove, who appreciate a more relaxed, traditional way of life, all year round. Our community perfectly balances a friendly social scene with enough space to enjoy your own privacy, peace and quiet.
With so many great neighbouring towns, cities and villages, when it comes to food and drink, you are literally spoilt for choice. The people from the Fylde coast are rightly proud of the cuisine, their beer isn’t bad either!
The Transport Links
We have excellent transport links with buses which stop right outside the Park. Blackpool, Lancaster, Thornton Cleveleys, and Poulton are all a short bus ride away. Further transport connections will take to the Trough of Bowland or to Windermere in the heart of the Lake District.
PEACE OF MIND
Safety, security and peace of mind, there are some things in life which can’t be bought. Willowgrove Park is protected by a barrier and password system after 5.00pm, and the 24-hour warden adds an extra dimension of reassurance for owners.
Our five-acre CEFAS registered fishing lake is not only the main focal point of the park, but it’s also a haven for wildlife and migrating birds. The lake is stocked with over 2,000 fish including Carp, Miracarp, Tench and many other species, all of differing sizes and weight.
The Fresh Sea Air
It’s a proven fact that those who live near the coast tend to be healthier than those that don’t. In close proximity to Willowgrove Park there are some stunning coastal walks with beautiful scenery, perfect for de-stressing, staying active and staying healthy!
