First new Owners settle into life at Bagshot’s Wessex Lodge retirement development

Churchill Retirement Living has welcomed its first new Owners at Wessex Lodge in Bagshot, where a thriving community will soon be taking shape. The age exclusive development on London Road has seen the first few Owners move into their brand new one and two bedroom apartments, and both enjoyed the benefits of a helping hand with their move.

The Lodge’s first new Owner was Barbara Eley, who says: “I moved into my new apartment at the beginning of November at a most stressful time in my life and Churchill really did take the strain and make the move easy for me.  All the companies involved with the move were excellent and Churchill could not have done more to help me, I felt in safe hands. I feel settled and very happy in my new home and would definitely recommend Wessex Lodge.  Our Lodge Manager is on hand to help which is very comforting to know and despite lockdown I am enjoying getting to know my new neighbour.”

That neighbour is Louise Hardwick, who moved to her new apartment in January and also feels very settled already. She says: “The move was very smooth and stress free with all the services Churchill offered including their recommended solicitor and the Britannia removal services. Even during the lockdown, alongside the comfort of having a Lodge Manager here, I have felt the benefits and companionship of having a new neighbour and I would certainly recommend Wessex Lodge.” 

Developments like Wessex Lodge have also proven to be very safe places to live throughout the pandemic thanks to the excellent safety measures, the hard work of Lodge Managers like Tina, and the secure, self-contained nature of this type of accommodation. This has meant the rate of Covid-19 infections among Churchill Owners has remained less than a third of that seen across the wider UK population, and safety and wellbeing continues to be a top priority.

Wessex Lodge is located near the heart of the village, opposite the historic Bagshot Park, well placed for transport links and just a short distance from the charming high street. The Lodge is a boutique collection of 25 private, self-contained apartments with spacious rooms throughout, considerately designed with the over 60s in mind, and a warm, comfortable Owners’ Lounge
