Where to retire by the sea?

Soak up the sea and sunshine every day with one of our coastal developments

If you’ve spent most of your life in a city, you’ll know it can be stressful at the best of times – noisy, busy and full of people rushing to work. Your retirement is the perfect time to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, put your mind at ease, and start afresh with a retirement by the sea. Thankfully, our Churchill retirement homes have everything you need to make your dream seaside home into a reality.

Beauty and the beach

The best reason to consider a retirement village by the sea is the natural beauty of the seaside, with the possibility of catching a sunset and watching the waves crash against the shore. However, the seaside is also full of interesting activities and hobbies to keep you busy, yet relaxed, during your retirement.

Whether it’s enjoying seaside fish and chips, soaking up the sun, or exploring the coastal paths, there will never be a dull moment. If you have children and grandchildren, it’s also a great spot to invite your family, who will have endless fun making sandcastles and taking a dip in the sea.

Explore the coast

There is a lot more to living by the sea than golden beaches and relaxing on deck chairs. Many of our coastal retirement spots are surrounded by green spaces and parks, giving you the opportunity to socialise and picnic with the new neighbours of your retirement community.

Missing the busy activity of city life? We’ve got that covered - a lot of our coastal retirement homes are only a short distance away from the city center. Many coastal towns have yearly events and activities to take part in, helping to make your retirement home even more welcoming.
