Park home review: Tingdene Cosgrove


Tingdene will soon unveil a new, compact home. The Cosgrove joins a portfolio which includes the Quantum, a sophisticated lodge designed for entertaining, and two imposing homes. Tingdene now has a park home for all preferences.

Tingdene is to launch a new, single-unit residential home. The new model, to be called the Cosgrove, will be unveiled in Birmingham in February.

The Cosgrove will be unveiled at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show at the NEC (18-23 February). There will be an official launch of the Cosgrove on 21 March, at Tingdene’s showroom in Wellingborough.

Both residential and leisure versions of the new Cosgrove will be available.

Tingdene Homes saw a demand for an entry-level, single-unit home after the success of the Harrington, which is Tingdene’s more cost-effective twin model.

We love the Harrington – it’s easy to see why it’s proving so popular – and we look forward to seeing the new, compact Cosgrove, which promises to be just as stylish, only smaller and therefore even more affordable for budget-conscious buyers.

The new, compact, Cosgrove is the latest innovation from the manufacturer which leapt ahead in the leisure lodge market last summer with an awesome creation, the Quantum Lodge.

Quantum Lodge

Quantum Lodge

Tingdene’s super-luxury Quantum has a roof terrace spanning the entire length and breadth of the lodge. It incorporates space for a hot tub, a barbecue area and lots of space for sitting, chatting, and enjoying the very best of a sophisticated holiday home lifestyle. Glass panels border the entire roof terrace, so you feel that it’s open, yet there is shelter from the breeze.

The Quantum is perfect for entertaining. Tingdene calls the Quantum a ‘revolution in luxury lodge living’. This is a 52ft by 22ft lodge, with a bedroom at each end – one a double, one a twin.

Quantum living space

Décor is nothing short of fantastic; an amalgam of innovative designs including a kitchen wall clad in an amazing geometric wood veneer design in black and pale wood, plus amazing hexagonal-shaped tiles in bold colours dark blue, orange and yellow in the en suite shower to the guest bedroom, creating stunning impact.

The master bedroom suite’s design is awesome, as our picture above shows, with an island wall separating the bedroom from the free-standing bath, the enormous, open shower, the toilet in its own, separate room, a copper radiator (yes, really!) and a walk-in wardrobe with a row of LEDs set into the rail!

The colossal Quantum makes a statement of breathtaking style; it’s a lodge of top-notch holiday lodge elegance. Yet Tingdene’s portfolio of homes for leisure and living also contains options for buyers looking for more modest alternatives, of less extreme design. We detail two of these on the next page.



The Addington is an imposing home with a peaked veranda-style porch supported by two pillars and a floor-to-ceiling window alongside it.

If you want luxury and style the Addington is perfect. Tingdene describes it as a true classic of the company’s collection; it has proved to be a firm favourite for residential home buyers looking for plenty of space for entertaining family and friends. The living space is open-plan.

A wide archway leads from the lounge into the huge dining kitchen. Everywhere you step in the Addington you sense the space.

Style elements include exposed beams, laminate flooring, a skylight, four pendant lights suspended from a floating bracket over the dining table and big, rounded dining chairs upholstered in citrus green velvet with button detail edging.

Addington bedroom

The 20ft-wide Addington is available in three lengths, 42ft, 46ft and 50ft. All three layouts have two double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite.



Another imposing home in Tingdene’s range is the Kensington, characterised by Georgian pane, arched windows that create an image of grandeur.

The Kensington’s styling has Scandinavian influences, mixed with lots of practicality including a hallway with a seat on which to perch to take off or put on boots.

The arched windows that make the exterior of the Kensington look so majestic also create a magnificent lounge look.

The Kensington is available in both single (42ft by 13ft) and twin (50ft by 20ft and 45ft by 20ft) formats. Both have two bedrooms.

The 20ft-wide version of this home has a study and a separate lounge, plus a loft space in the high-pitched roof line.
