Park Focus – Tamar Park

By 25, November 2014News, Park Focus

Tamar Park is set in the beautiful, tranquil countryside of the Tamar Valley, in Gunnislake, Cornwall, situated on the Devon and Cornwall borders, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

It is easy to see how the location is an attraction, and the park equals it with an exclusive development of 34 homes, each having stunning views across the Tamar Valley.

The park is residential, aimed at the over 50’s and pet friendly. The overall environment on the park is of a caring friendly community, an ideal location for residents looking for a peaceful retirement.

Being an established park, the development has recently seen some redevelopment providing the opportunity for a small selection of new homes to be available, which have sold quite quickly.   Given the location and the overall park management it is easy to see why.

Jan and Dave moved onto the park in the summer of 2014 and are thrilled with their new home and lifestyle. They had been living on a Narrow Boat for 26 years and felt that it was time for a change.  Having looked at the many options available to them, the option of a park home had the most appeal, however after visiting Tamar Park and seeing the stunning view available to them from one particular available plot, they were sold on the idea !!  Not only that, Darren’s vision for his park and approach gave them the inspiration to take things forward.

They had visited Tingdene’s Visitor Centre around 5 years previously so now that their minds were made up, they re-visited with a fresh focus to design up their new home, putting their own personal touches to the final layout and furnishings.

Once they had finally settled into their home, they were then free to take one of their many  holidays in France in the knowledge that they had a lovely new home and base to return to, along with new friends that they have already made on the park.

Location / history
