How is Tingdene different?

We build homes at Tingdene with customers at heart, making our homes creative and customised to suit your needs. We are long-standing supporters of the finest British manufacturing and all of our homes are built to BS3632:2015 standards, making sure we deliver the best quality to you.

Whether it's downsizing or revelling in retirement, we know how difficult the process of moving homes is, which is why we guide you through it all; from your first showroom appointment to the day you get comfortable in your new home. Not only do we provide advice on homes but also where to park your home as we work closely with parks and have helpful insights into each park’s facilities and surrounding areas.


How do I buy a park home?

There are many different ways to go about buying your park home, one of the ways is to go directly to the manufacturer, decide on the home then find a suitable park with a plot that works for your chosen model. The second is purchasing through the owner of the site you want to live on as they have brand new homes available. The owner of your chosen site would usually allow you to select the manufacturer you want to go with, and then you can visit their factory or showroom to discuss the specifics. When your park home has been selected, the site owner can confirm the price and arrange everything else, such as transportation, pitching, and connecting to utilities. This is the most traditional way, but if you own your own land going to the manufacturer first is recommended as it gives you the freedom to have a home designed to suit your needs.

What’s included in the price of the home?

The price of a park home includes everything and more that would be in a traditional home but this is typically defined on a sales specification that is given at the quotation / sales stage. The homes come fully furnished, although you can choose to buy one without the furniture included. This typically includes all interior fittings and furniture, i.e. kitchen units and appliances, beds and storage (wardrobes / bedside tables / cabinets), bathroom fittings (shower / bath / toilet/ basin), boiler and radiators, light fittings, soft furnishings (sofas / chairs / tables), and floor coverings.

Where can I park my home?

There are many parks available and we can help you find the perfect park for your new dream home. Each park has its unique features so it's really important to check that the park 's facilities are right for your needs. Use our park finder service to learn about each and every park and narrow down the ones you like. We can put you in touch with a representative of each park and guide you through the park finding process.
