Mount Pleasant is an established park just on the outskirts of the Cheshire village of Goostrey. An old farming village, with views over open fields, it is surrounded by beautiful Cheshire countryside which makes it a peaceful place to live.
Whilst enjoying a rural setting it also benefits from being close to a number of larger towns so residents get the best of town and country. If you enjoy walking and being part of a rural community, Mount Pleasant is the ideal place for you to call home.
Larger towns, such as Knutsford, Holmes Chapel and Alderley Edge are all within easy reach of Mount Pleasant Park, with plenty of shops, amenities and restaurants to keep you entertained.
Getting around is easy, as a pub, coffee shop and local village shop are all within walking distance from the Park, as well as the local train station and Manchester Airport being easily accessible by car.
Speaking about their experience of living at Mount Pleasant, one resident said: “We might be living in the quiet of the countryside, but it definitely isn’t quiet on the park. With plenty of social groups and activities we couldn’t be happier.”
There are already 70 existing homes on the park, and due to demand, a new development is taking place to build nine new homes, situated at the front of the park.
Two ‘move in ready’ show homes have been sited on the park and are now ready for people to view and purchase, leaving seven plots available for homes of your choosing. Three reservations have already been taken on the new development, so if you are interested, Tingdene Parks recommends booking a park visit as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Prices for a brand-new, fully furnished home on a plot of your choice, within the new development, start from ?224,950 for a 36′ x 20′ home. Most homes can have a garage and all come with a driveway and a shed – perfect for storing the all important garden furniture.

Taking the decision to move home can be an arduous one – when to do it, where to move to, what type of home to buy. It’s never easy. One option to leading a more comfortable and secure lifestyle, is park home living. Now a popular choice amongst many over 45s, it gives you the opportunity to find a location that offers you everything you’re looking for – by the sea, near a town or in a rural setting, and to then think about designing your own home and creating the retirement home of your dreams.
Here are just some reasons why Mount Pleasant is the ideal place to call home:
Planning and securing your financial future is something that plays on all our minds. For many, financial issues can be behind a decision to move, particularly later in life, and that’s where buying a park home offers many advantages. When it comes to releasing equity, enjoying your retirement and making sure your family are secure, buying a park home at Tingdene Parks wins on every front.

When purchasing a park home at Mount Pleasant, you are involved in the design and specification from the outset. You’re able to choose the style, colours, furniture, fixtures and fittings all from new – so you can be sure that your home is as individual as you are.
Tingdene value friendship and communications and understand that living in a safe and welcoming environment is key to your wellbeing. That’s why, when building a residential park, a community is built with it. Tingdene believe that park home living brings together the best of community sprit with like-minded people of similar ages residing in an exclusive development.
Talking about the community spirit they feel living at Mount Pleasant, one resident said: “I’ve only been on the park for a couple of months, but I feel totally at home. I would certainly recommend park home living to anyone finding themselves in a similar situation to myself. At the right time of your life it really is the best choice you could make. Plus, it’s a big weight off my sons’ minds to know that I am happy and secure.
I’m looking forward to spending the next chapter of my life on the park. It feels like I am on a permanent holiday!”
Security and peace of mind In many ways linked to community, and often a key factor for choosing a park home, security and peace of mind are extremely important when choosing a home, especially as we get older. By making the choice to live at Mount Pleasant, you will benefit from being part of a close-knit community where everyone is looking out for one another. No more worrying when you go away on holiday, or having to think twice before answering the door.
