Making the most of your outside space with some decking, a veranda or some steps is a shrewd move. Adding such options can be like adding an extra room to your mobile home, especially in the summer and autumn months. There are some really stylish and affordable choices currently on the market, as our comprehensive 13-page guide to outdoor living shows.
But it’s not just decks and verandas that our specialist guide brings you – there are a range of other products suitable for use outdoors. Turn to page 61 for the complete low-down.
While the outdoor spirit is upon us, there are also two exciting shows to look forward to in the coming weeks. First, there’s the Hercma-organised event at Beaulieu in Hampshire, this September, and then there’s the National Caravan Council’s hotly-anticipated Motorhome and Caravan Show from Birmingham’s NEC in early October. Read our exclusive previews of both events on page 88 and page 96.
If you are searching for a residential property, there’s lots to consider in our October issue too.
We’ve turned our regional spotlight on Leicestershire and Rutland – England’s smallest, and some might say prettiest, county. If you’ve never visited ‘the Cotswolds without the crowds’, pay the county a visit. Ranksborough Hall, the park site we profile on page 16, is one of the main attractions but if you’re after unspoilt countryside, history and heritage, this tiny county could be the one for you.
Enjoy the issue!
