New lodge in place at No. 11 Riverside

Our newest Tingdene lodge arrived at Riverside park last week – a 20′ x 40′ two bedroom home located at the north end of the park, available for purchase. The fitters are currently working to complete the interior and the mains gas connection will also be carried out this week. Next, work will begin on the brick skirting, raised patio, block paved driveway and garden.


For viewings, please phone to arrange a suitable day and time on 07939 974183 (Steve Paxton).

Browse through the interior photos below to get an idea of the modern, open plan design of the lodge. The large windows, skylights and vaulted ceilings maximise the feeling of light and space.

New lodge at number 7…

Last week saw the arrival of our latest Tingdene lodge – a 40′ x 20′ Woodland Oak model with upgraded kitchen and en-suite. AVAILABLE FOR SALE.

Now in place at plot number 7, the lodge is undergoing finishing touches to the interior to join the two halves of the home. Gas and water connections are in place and work is well underway on the brick skirting, front steps and raised patio area. A block paved driveway will follow and the steps and patio will be finished off with a set of handmade, decorative  metal railings. The garden will be the final focus, grassed with a paved footpath and a metal storage shed to the rear or the lodge.

Number 7 completes the row of timber lodges on the eastern side of the Park (8 lodges in total) and at this time of year especially with the gardens in full bloom, swans on the river and late sunset over the castle, the attraction of the location is evident. Photos of the interior will be posted here over the next few weeks.

Spring has sprung with further improvements at Riverside…

The warmer weather has already brought changes to Riverside; the grass is growing again, the daffodils in full bloom and the swans are gliding on the river. We’ve been busy finishing block paved driveways, balcony railings, post & rail fencing and preparing plot 7 for the arrival of a new Woodland Oak lodge in June. Everything is looking good, it’s a great time of year to visit and see what the park has to offer.

Just give Steve a call on 07939 974183 to arrange a visit or email us:

10 year Platinum Seal Warranty with every new Tingdene home…

Platinum Seal logo

Who is Platinum Seal?

Platinum Seal has been providing specialist insured protection for Residential Park Homes since 2005, covering over £40million worth of Park and Leisure Homes manufactured. The Platinum Seal scheme is underwritten by Assist Insurance Company Ltd.

Why do I need a warranty?

Firstly, to ensure your home is protected against structural defects which can be expensive to repair. Without this cover it is likely that your manufacturer is only responsible for defects occurring during the first 12 months of you owning the home. Secondly, if you decide to sell your home before your warranty expires, a Platinum Seal Warranty will make your property far more attractive to buyers.

What does the warranty cover?

The Platinum Seal Warranty Scheme is the only ‘Insured’ Residential Park Home Manufacturers Structural Warranty Scheme for the Park Home Industry. Platinum Seal cover provides a similar form of cover that is more commonly associated to a conventional bricks and mortar home.

All homes covered by Platinum Seal are insured for a wide range of structural defects that could occur during the first 10 years after manufacture. Structural faults that occur during this period will be taken care of with the minimum of fuss, providing total peace of mind in the quality and durability of your new home. Platinum Seal cover is only available from selected ‘approved’ manufacturers (Tingdene included). In addition, should your manufacturer not be around to help in the future, the insurers of Platinum Seal could (subject to cover provided) fulfil the obligations of your manufacturer.

More information about the Platinum Seal cover is available from the Tingdene sales team – phone 01933 230 130.

  • Flexibility – Most types of residential properties can be considered whether they have a higher or lower value than the home you are buying.
  • Security – With the security of a guaranteed sale on your existing property it means you can avoid the risk of losing the home you want to buy
  • No Chain – part exchange removes the risk of lengthy delays and fall-throughs that are often encountered with chains.
  • Speed – Once we have made an offer for your property we can proceed quickly to meet deadlines.
  • No Obligation – their is no charge to make an offer on your property and there is no obligation for you to accept any offer that is made.
  • No Estate Agents Fees – by taking advantage of our property purchase scheme you can avoid paying Estate Agents fees.
