Residential Park Profile: Tingdene Mount Pleasant Residential Park
Cheshire is renowned for its delightful countryside, pretty villages and cycling routes – and Mount Pleasant Residential Park sits amid some of the county’s finest scenery.
Mount Pleasant Residential Park is in the historic agricultural village of Goostrey, which is surrounded by walking and cycling routes. The park, owned by Tingdene Parks, has a manicured appeal, with all of the plots having neat grass frontages. Fencing is in attractive styles. Part of the park backs onto fields. A sign at the entrance to the park describes Mount Pleasant as ‘a village within a village’; that’s because it’s conveniently close to Goostrey village, yet feels totally separate.
Goostrey’s charm is its architecture: half-timbered buildings mixed with weathered Cheshire brick. It’s also known for its community activities. Annual events include Goosfest, an arts festival that features music, comedy, art and pottery throwing. There’s also a gooseberry show; Cheshire has long been a centre of gooseberry cultivation. The village has two pubs and a coffee shop, plus small shops and a Post Office. Golfers are well catered for; Woodside Golf Club is just two miles from the park. The village of Holmes Chapel is three miles from the park and overlooks the Dane Valley, well-known as a walking and cycling region. Holmes Chapel is a traditional village, with a pretty church and old pub, plus a small shopping precinct where you’ll find a pharmacy, a Post Office and a convenience store.
Goostrey is well placed for proximity to towns. The nearest town is Knutsford, just over six miles away. Northwich is nine miles from the park. And, for a major day out, Chester is 25 miles away. Goostrey has a train station just outside the village. You can travel from here to Crewe and Manchester Piccadilly. And the M6 is just a few minutes away. This area is also well placed for days out in the Peak District. From Mount Pleasant Park you can be at the Derbyshire spa town of Buxton in 45 minutes, and, onwards, into the Peak District National Park. The Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is close to Goostrey; it’s a great place for a scientific day out. Cheshire is also well known for its gardens, stately homes and country parks. It all adds up to a region stacked full of interest and delights; a brilliant area in which to live.
And the park? Both dogs and cats are allowed. The minimum age for home ownership is 45. Mount Pleasant Residential Park has been owned by the Tingdene Parks group for almost three years now. It’s an estate of 68 homes. Two plots are available. One is suitable for a home of 38ft by 22ft; the other is designed for a smaller home, of 34ft by 12ft. Homes from any manufacturer can be obtained. And more plots are in the pipeline; up to nine plots are to be created next year. You can register your interest for regular updates.
