What is a park home?

A park home (or mobile home) is a detached single story home, designed for residential use. Park homes are usually sited on a park and located on a plot known as a pitch.

As park homes are designed to be lived in throughout the year, they are well insulated and have central heating, double-glazing and energy efficient boilers. A home will usually have between one and three bedrooms, an en-suite, sitting room, dining area, fully fitted kitchen and bathroom(s). Most park homes come fully furnished, which generally includes freestanding and/or fitted furniture, flooring, soft furnishings and appliances. Although park homes are usually fully furnished you can choose part or un-furnished. Park homes are connected to services such as water, electricity, gas, telephone, drains and sewers.

Park homes are covered by their own legislation:

The Mobile Homes Act 1983 


The Mobile Homes Act 2013

Legal provisions vary between England, Scotland and Wales.

Park homes are built to comply with British Standard BS 3632, which sets out stringent health and safety standards.
