Retirement properties in Sidmouth

Lockyer Lodge is a development of 40 one- and two-bedroom retirement apartments located near the Byes Riverside Park in the quaint village of Sidford and is just a short bus journey to Sidmouth High Street; with a great selection of restaurants, independent retailers and cafes.

Sidmouth offers Regency history and architecture as well as year-round entertainment at The Manor Pavilion Theatre and the annual Sidmouth Folk Week & Sidmouth Jazz Festival. Popular landmarks include the wide promenade, Connaught Gardens and Jacobs Ladder from where you can enjoy wonderful views of the surrounding coastline.

Due to extremely high demand, we have now SOLD OUT at Lockyer Lodge. Our nearest development is OTTER LODGE in Honiton where a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments will be available to reserve off-plan in February 2024.

Our developments have been carefully designed to make life easier, leaving you free to enjoy your retirement.

All apartments 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 with integrated appliances.

All apartments are inspected by our Customer Services department to ensure they meet the high standard of finish and quality expected by our customers. Churchill Retirement Living is the only major housebuilder to offer a 3 year warranty period as standard. Churchill is also a member of the National House-Building Council and every Churchill apartment is also covered by a 10 year NHBC Buildmark warranty.

How a new Churchill apartment could help reduce your costs:

Now is the time to take stock and think about how much time and money you have spent over the past year on house maintenance. If the answer is far too much, then a lifestyle with fewer maintenance worries and a service charge that’s easy to budget for could be the answer to saving money and enjoying more of your time on the things you love.

There are many misconceptions about service charges and many of our Owners are pleasantly surprised that the service charges for their apartment frequently work out less than what they were paying in comparable costs on their previous property.

Our Service Charge typically covers the cost of providing a Lodge Manager, security systems and call monitoring, external maintenance of the building and grounds, building insurance, heating, lighting and provision of all of the furnishings for the Owners’ Lounge and communal areas – all essential ingredients of the independent lifestyle our developments provide.

We always aim to keep the service charge cost as low as possible, and we provide a full budget breakdown for all our Owners to consider, consulting with them on this every 6 months.

“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

We appreciate everyone’s household costs will differ which is why we encourage Customers to complete a ‘Savings Calculator’ with one of our Sales Executives. This calculator is designed to offer a comprehensive understanding of the value in our easy to budget Service Charge.

The gateway to the Jurassic Coast

Sidford is a pretty village on the outskirts of the popular seaside town of Sidmouth in Devon. Considered to be the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, a large part of the town is a designated conservation area.

  • Sidmouth is an established retirement location and in 2014 was named by The Times as one of the 30 best places to live in the countryside because of its “Regency architecture and stunning Jurassic Coast views”.
  • With a population of around 15,000, the town has an excellent range of amenities, while still retaining that relaxed, quiet atmosphere.
  • This new development is close to Sidford High St and within a mile of the nearest Waitrose. The famous fish and chip shop, Bloaters is also only a short distance away, perfect for Fridays!
  • With the beach in such close proximity, Sidford offers everything you’d need for a peaceful retirement that can be as active as you’d like.

Testimonials

Barbara Roberts & Molly

“Since moving here I have found it a joy to have all the shops on the doorstep, and the Post Office and a very nice fish and chip with such charming friendly staff. We also have a bus service to Sidmouth town, and The Byes which are a beautiful place for exercise and dog walks. We are very lucky to have all this on our doorsteps.”
