Retirement Parks for Recreational People

The Silent Woman Parks offer low maintenance beautiful homes combined with the security of a community lifestyle in two locations within the heart of the southern countryside.

Envisage waking up to comfort and tranquillity, drawing the curtains to picturesque woodlands and green fields that drift onwards to reveal an enticing coastline.

Take advantage of the country’s natural gems located right on your doorstep by seeing off the morning with a stroll along the Jurassic coast or perhaps a horse ride through the Dartmore National Park.

With the Silent Woman Parks, this vision can be your reality. Founded by Dennis and Peggy Stainer in 1957, the Coldharbour Park in Wareham began as financial support to the Silent Woman Inn, which continues to serve locals today.
Today the park remains within the family and has expanded to include Moorshop Park, Tavistock.
