    We moved to Darelyn Park in 2015 and absolutely love it! It is a friendly, safe and welcoming community and is perfectly situated in the village of Coven with excellent amenities within walking distance. Our only regret is that we did not move here sooner!

    It is a lovely community where you can either be private or belong to the community. The park owner organises residents’ meetings regularly, together with garden competitions and a summer BBQ. Darelyn Park really has it all – it is a quiet residential, family-run park in a lovely village, with all the amenities you could need. All in all an amazing place to live.

    We decided to downsize from our home of 34 years in Wednesfield. A friend of ours who lives in Coven recommended Darelyn Park. We have now lived in our home on the park for 23 years and love it. It is very quiet and peaceful. The park owner and warden are very approachable and put things right quickly if problems arise.

    I have lived on Darelyn Park since 2007 and regret that I did not move before. If you want to downsize and have lower outgoings, this is the place for you. I have never been more content. Lovely park manager for whom nothing is too much trouble. I have an allotment to the back of me, lawns to the front and side and a little wild pond.
