Service charges explained…

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

  • A potential saving 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

Staplehurst is often referred to as a village – indeed, it was voted Kent Village of the Year in 2003, and its village sign still proudly welcomes visitors – but really it’s grown into a small town, situated nine miles south of Maidstone.

  • Staplehurst has a vibrant history, developing along the straight Roman road running from Rochester down through Maidstone to the High Weald’s one-time iron-mining villages.
  • Nearby villages include the picturesque Sissingnhurst and Headcorn, whilst Biddenden and its vineyards are less than ten miles away.
  • London is within easy reach from Staplehurst station. It’s on Ashford’s mainline to Charing Cross and Cannon Street via Tonbridge, and under an hour’s journey – so good news for commuters.
  • The A229 runs all the way to Maidstone via Linton and Loose and connects you to the M20 London bound, with access to the M26, M25 and Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
  • This new development is located on the high street with a bus stop outside offering services to Maidstone, Hawkhurst, Sandhurst and Cranbrook
  • Within 0.2 miles of the site you will find a dentist, park with open green space and within 0.3 miles is Staplehurst shopping centre which includes a Spar, Costa Coffee, selection of eateries, library and pharmacy. Also within 0.3 miles is a health centre, beauticians and post office, all on a level walk.
  • Within 0.5 miles is Sainsbury’s superstore and Staplehurst train station which services London Charing Cross via Tonbridge, Dover Priory, Ramsgate via Canterbury West and London Cannon Street.
