The Elms is an award winning family run residential park homes park for the over 50’s. Set in over 65 acres of well-kept and landscaped grounds The Elms is an idyllic setting for your retirement years.
The Kinch family moved here in the late 1970’s and most of the family now work in the business. John and Marion are the founders and remain Directors. Whilst being almost fully retired they continue to attend meetings and visit the office regularly to keep abreast of what the children are up to! Stuart the youngest child is the Managing Director. Next in command is Tracey who has the position of Director and Company Secretary. Ann is head of Sales and Marketing and Johnny is Groundsman.
The Elms offers an unrivalled setting in which to enjoy peace and quiet in a rural Lincolnshire countryside setting. The park benefits from boat moorings and tourer and motorhome storage on site for those who still wish to enjoy these pursuits. There are ample active associations and clubs on the park but many choose to simply relax, enjoy the walks on the park and take in the scenery and wildlife. Having been accredited with the Silver David Bellamy Conservation Award the Kinch family take the setting of The Elms seriously and are constantly working to improve the environment in which the homes sit. For example the recent opening of John’s Wood which runs along the park now offers residents a fully interpreted Woodland Walk with benches staged at various points along the way for residents to sit back and enjoy the ambiance.
John and Marion have also received Park Owner of the Year Runner Up status for which they were nominated by the residents. What better recommendation can there be.
All the family continue to contribute where possible to the enhancement of life at The Elms. Many seminars have been run at the local Hume Arms pub over the years to keep residents informed of matters that may be of interest to them. More relaxing events such as Herbal Walks have also taken place.
“No-one could do more than the Kinch family and John especially. The Elms has been his creation and is his personal pride and joy”
