A history of one of the UK’s leading retirement property developers


Churchill Retirement Living is a UK based privately owned, family run Company. Founded in 1994 by Spencer and Clinton McCarthy. The Company originally started out building stone and thatched cottages in and around Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire, under the name of Emlor Homes.  We began with our office based in Clinton’s garage in the New Forest but by 1998 had grown such that we were voted “Housebuilder of the Year” by Whathouse Magazine.


In 2000 we decided to change the direction of the company to focus exclusively on the development of purpose built retirement developments and after the fantastic success of our first development, “Avon Lodge” in Southbourne, we decided to sell all our existing open market sites and to concentrate solely on the retirement market.

Churchill Retirement Living now has UK retirement apartments across the South of England and throughout the Midlands with our Head Office in Ringwood, Hampshire and Regional Offices in Byfleet, Surrey, St Albans, Hertfordshire and Bromsgrove, West Midlands.
