Residential park review: Warfield Park, Berkshire

b8795d7b-9c84-4e58-838d-ffccc4644990

In 92 acres of picturesque Berkshire parkland, a park home estate with its own programme of community activities – and no lower age limit.

This is ‘park home living’ on a luxurious scale – and that’s not just about the magnificent setting. The gardens of each park home are generous. Many of them have garages.

A team of groundsmen maintain the communal areas of the park – and it’s always immaculate, as we’ve seen for ourselves. Shrubs, flower beds and copses in open areas sit alongside the mature trees that define the park.

A long-term tree planting and woodland management scheme is in place to ensure Warfield is always a spectacular park.

Plots are angled carefully to create individuality and, because of the foliar character, you feel as if you are living in a very rural location.

Yet, Warfield Park is conveniently close to Bracknell, and 20 minutes from the majestic character town of Windsor (you don’t have to go shopping there as an excuse to make the trip. This is a delightful town for a stroll or as a coffee or lunch destination).

The park is also within easy distance of mainline trains to London, the M3 and M4.

Community Centre

Community Centre

Warfield is more like a village than a park home estate. It has its own hairdressing salon, launderette – plus the feature that makes this park a very unusual one: its own community centre, with a Community Association run by residents.

The centre is the base for several clubs and regular activities including a gardening club, a knitting club and a craft group, plus games nights and weekend activities at least once a month. There are coffee mornings every other Saturday.

There’s a summer fete and a winter fair, with lots to do for children and adults of all ages! Whatever your interests there is sure to be something for you.

Weekly classes include Pilates and FitSteps, plus film nights, bingo, line dancing, table tennis, short mat bowls… The association even has its own choir and Women’s Institute.

No age limit

There’s another aspect to Warfield Park that makes it a very rare residential park: there’s no lower age limit. So that gives the park a true village feel. Pets are welcome, too; up to three (“well behaved!”) pets per unit. And dog walking is a delight, straight from your door, here.

A long history

Warfield Park home

Warfield Park is one of the longest-established park home estates in the country. It was set up in 1947. But the park’s history goes back a lot further.

It’s on land that was once part of Windsor Forest and Windsor Great Park. And Warfield Park is thought to be the only park home estate to have entertained four kings, when, in the early

years of the twentieth century, the then owner invited King Edward VII, the Kaiser, Alfonso of Spain and the King of Bulgaria to a shoot in the park.
