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. That’s why a full service charge budget analysis is available for each individual development. Owners are consulted on this annually, and we always aim to keep the cost as low as possible.

In fact many 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. This is backed up by research from the Housing LIN, who found that downsizing from a 3 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom retirement apartment could save an Owner approximately £1,300* per year. This is a potential saving of around 15% on bills.

With energy costs on the increase, it is worth highlighting that we incorporate renewable technologies to supply hot water and heating to reduce electricity bills. We also insulate our developments to a very high standard. This means that the need to turn the heating on is kept to a minimum.

“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

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.

Barbara Roberts & Molly
Lockyer Lodge, Sidmouth

“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.”
