Holiday lodge review: Tingdene Rockingham


Magnificent Rockingham! With an immense lounge-dining-kitchen area that has enormous windows, the ‘Rockingham’ is a sensational holiday lodge with many spectacular design features.

Words by Val Chapman

The Rockingham holiday lodge has an extraordinary design, with a split roofline, enormous windows to the open-plan living area and three large porthole mirrors (pictured inset above).

This lodge is a vision of white and cream with a hint of peach and apricot — and wide-open space.

Tingdene RockinghamThis lodge shares its name with the castle built by William the Conqueror in Northamptonshire. It’s easy to see the commonality — 900 years apart but both Rockingham Castle and Rockingham Lodge can easily be described as magnificent in their own ways.

The lounge-dining-kitchen area is immense, spanning the divide between the two sections of the lodge — one with a flat roof, the other with an angled roof.

The lounge has an intriguing design, with two seating areas. At the front, two small armchairs are positioned by the window, to take advantage of sun warming through the glass — and of the view.

The main lounge area, with two settees facing one another, has a huge coffee table, of an innovative design, composed of three squares, set at differing angles. The angular theme continues with an open-shelf unit set between two slender floor-to-ceiling windows dressed with Roman blinds.

Apricot and pink are the accent colours of the Rockingham. Combined with cool greys and fawns, it looks delightful. Lounge cushions are in various textures, ranging from light-reflecting sheen to velvet.

The three porthole mirrors are in bold, black frames, with a wooden shelf within each; rather like the grey and natural wood exterior, this marriage of contrasting surfaces looks stunning.

Kitchen cabinets are gloss white, with no handles. There’s a seemingly wide-open acreage of kitchen surface and a vast amount of storage space in upper and lower cabinets, and drawers. Hexagonal tiles in brown and cream form the splashback.

The dining table sits in a wide-open area in the vicinity of the kitchen. The table is pale polished wood-effect, and is teamed with four bright pink chairs.

The Rockingham is available in two and three-bedroomed layouts and in sizes ranging from 40ft by 20ft to 50ft by 20ft. The 50ft by 20ft Rockingham has a double bedroom plus two twin-bed rooms. The double room in all size options is exceptionally large and has its own en suite in a separate area behind the bed.

In the bedrooms the apricot colour is mixed with grey, for cushions, and deep, buttoned bed heads plus chairs to desk-style dressing tables.

In the bathroom and ensuite the design theme is almost distressed wood-planking effect for the tiles, combined with white walls. Stunning!
