Service charges explained…

We understand that the ongoing cost of running your new apartment is an important factor to consider when deciding to purchase a Churchill apartment, here’s some key Service Charge benefits:

  • Downsizing from a 3 bed house to a 2 bed apartment could save approximately £1,300* per year.
  • A potential saving of around 15% on bills.
  • Renewable technologies to supply hot water and heating to reduce electricity bills.
  • We also insulate our developments to a very high standard.
  • The need to turn the heating on is kept to a minimum.
  • Owners are consulted annually
  • We always aim to keep the cost as low as possible.

“Living in a Churchill Apartment is absolutely marvellous. The whole building is so nice and warm all the time that we’ve hardly had to use the heating inside our apartment. When we do turn it up a notch or two it’s nice to know we don’t have to worry about the cost or the environmental impact, as it’s all so energy efficient and covered within our annual service charge.”

John and Doreen Pitt, Lewis Carroll Lodge, Cheltenham

Local area

Ancient stannary and market town within West Devon

Situated on the western edge of Dartmoor National Park and on the River Tavy, Tavistock has a rich history as an ancient Stannary town and is popular with visitors as it provides a good starting point for exploring Dartmoor. In 2017 this thriving market town was once again named as one of the Sunday Times best places to live.

  • Situated within a level walk of 0.5 miles, the town centre features high street names as well as an eclectic mix of small independent shops.
  • Tavistock is perfectly capable of catering for your every need without having to venture out of the town. Along with the necessary banks and post office there’s a range of butcher’s shops, a fishmonger, greengrocers and plenty of lifestyle and clothes shops.
  • In addition, Tavistock Pannier Market offers a wide variety of products – ranging from antiques to crafts, clothing and local food producers.
  • The town hosts a varied events calendar including the Tavistock Art Exhibition, Tavistock Heritage Festival, The Goose Fair and The Dickensian Evening.
  • The open parkland of the Meadows, with the canal flowing through it, provides a succession of attractive green spaces as well as leisure facilities such as Tavistock Tennis Club, Tavistock Bowling Club and Meadowlands Leisure Centre.
  • Further afield there is plenty of scope for exploring either further into Devon or across the water into Cornwall. Head west to South East Cornwall and the beautiful Tamar Valley or east to discover the moorland’s rolling hills and majestic tors.

“Even though I did love my garden, it’s lovely not having to worry about it any more. I can get through the housework in half an hour, so I’ve got more time to get out and about and enjoy doing the things I want to do.”
