All apartments at Churchill Retirement Living are completely self-contained with their own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it.
There is a choice of one and two bedroom apartments and they may all vary slightly when it comes to dimensions and position of rooms.
Kitchens are tiled with colour-coordinated worktops, and come fully fitted with a waist-height oven, hob, hood and fridge/freezer. Most of our developments also have integral washer/dryers fitted in all apartments as standard.
The master bedrooms have fitted mirror-front wardrobes as well as TV and telephone points, with even the smallest details considered.
The apartments come with tiled shower rooms as standard, while some of them have separate en-suites and cloakrooms as well – all designed for ease of use and with the needs of our customers in mind.
All apartments are stringently inspected by our Customer Services department to ensure they are handed over to the standard of finish and quality expected by our customers.

"We’d lived in our three-bedroom bungalow with a huge garden in Shaftesbury for years, but it was becoming quite a job to maintain. It was quite a task downsizing from our home to the apartment, there were certainly a lot of trips to the charity shop and the tip to get rid of things, but we did it. It was certainly the right move for us!"

Of course I brought the car with me when I moved, and there’s a free car park for the Owners here. However, after a few months I realised there was no point keeping it. I found it stressful driving in new places, and my reactions are slowing down a bit, so I decided to sell the car and I feel I’m better off without it. If I need to get anywhere I’m right next to the railway station and there are any number of buses I can catch within 100 yards of my front door.
