Worried about moving? Sit back and relax, we'll take care of it.

Moving into a retirement apartment could be the best move you ever make, and you'll be surprised how easy it really is.

Our experienced teams offer a range of services to help you downsize and start a new, simpler life in a Churchill Lodge.

We can help sell your existing property and remove the stress that comes with selling and moving. Be it a Home Exchange, or help with solicitors and estate agents - we want to make it as easy as possible in a way that suits you.

Our Move With Ease service takes the headache out of downsizing and moving into a retirement village. There's no need to worry about packing up your things or organising a removal service - we can do all that for you. We'll give you a friendly and helpful move coordinator who will take the burden off your shoulders and ensure you have a smooth transition into your new retirement home.

“I used some of the services from Churchill to help me move – like the Home Exchange, where they bought my house so I could move quickly. It was very good – it took the stress out of moving.”

"We are a very independent couple but having the added security and benefits of having an on-site Lodge Manager, especially for future peace of mind as we get older, is great. We thoroughly enjoy having the company of the other Owners too and have quickly made new friends.”

Our retirement apartments are designed to help you enjoy a life of full independence, free from responsibilities. You can enjoy life in your own beautiful home whilst avoiding all the hassles of maintenance and upkeep. This leaves you free to make the most of your retirement, and achieve a simpler life in retirement.

"Our responsibilities for the building, and everything else
within it, are taken away - it gives us more time to enjoy ourselves."
- Sue and Jim Snedker, Owners in Chelmer Lodge

Remember you'll still be shopping and cooking for yourself, so bring your favourite kitchenware. When you're living in a retirement village you have your own private apartment to furnish to your own tastes. You'll want to bring your most cherished pieces of furniture, pictures and lamps.

Our gardens are kept in perfect order, so you won't need to bring garden tools or outdoor items. We'll handle all the hassles of home maintenance, meaning you can just bring whatever will make you comfortable in your new apartment. Bring those cherished mementos - but leave the toolbox behind.
