In appearance, there is virtually no difference. Many park homes look like attractively designed and traditionally built bungalows with a pitched roof. The only real difference is the method of construction.

Central heating and double glazing are usually standard, and so is flooring throughout.

How much does a Park Home cost? Will it hold its value?
