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

Life in Cowbridge

De Clare Lodge is the first development that Churchill Retirement has built in Wales. The Lodge is less than 150 metres from the high street and boasts beautiful views across Bear Field, which is why we feel that Cowbridge is an ideal location for our retirement homes.

  • Cowbridge itself is just seven miles from Cardiff and benefits from being close to all of the modern amenities of the city, while still offering a more relaxed, slower pace of life offered in the suburbs. The pretty market town is a hugely popular destination and one of the most sought-after locations in Wales.
  • Frequent bus services run to Cardiff and the airport is close by as well – perfect if you’re planning some holidays in your retirement!
  • Cowbridge is known for its unique, family-owned shops that sell everything from clothes and jewellery, to antiques, crafts and leather goods. Various coffee shops and restaurants also scatter the town, so you’ll never be short of things to do. Traditional shops include a bakery, a butcher’s and a greengrocer’s so you can pick up your fresh produce every week.
  • Just fifteen minutes from the beach, Cowbridge offers the best of both worlds, with plenty of places to relax, while having all the essentials in close proximity.
