A little about Downlands Retirement Properties
Downlands Park is a small established park of just 17 retirement Park Homes, lying adjacent to Brickhill Park on a quiet country lane.
At the centre of Downlands is a delightful small green onto which all the homes face. All our plots enjoy a private garden with parking facilities either adjacent or near to each Park Home.
Regretfully no pets are permitted to reside on Downlands.
