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.

Local area

A maritime town full of character

The maritime town of Gravesend has all you need to enjoy your retirement to the full. The borough of Gravesham has the riverside, countryside, historic villages, picturesque parishes and a full calendar of events for you to enjoy. All this and it’s only 24 minutes from London and has great links from Ebbsfleet to Europe.

  • The high street offers a full range of retail and leisure amenities.
  • Next to the site is Gravesham Council’s Civic Centre/Community Square, a popular pedestrianised area for community events.
  • The site is well served by public transport with Gravesend Train Station less than 200 metres of the site. The station runs regular local services every 30 minutes and, more notably, a 22 minute service to central London.
  • Thames sailing barges, paddle steamers and yachts sail from the Gravesend Town Pier Pontoon.
  • Another must-see is Gravesend’s Cold War Bunker, where a domestic fallout room, radiation monitoring post and public information film superbly evoke a clandestine, underground 1950s England, fearful of a nuclear attack.
  • Gravesend is also rich in links to one of England’s greatest Victorian authors. Hunt out the compelling Charles Dickens connections, Chalk, Shorne, and Higham Marshes.
  • Take a peek at Gad’s Hill Place, where Dickens wrote Great Expectations and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Now a private school, it’s open on selected days and pre-booked tours.
  • Nearby, the ancient forests of Shorne Woods Country Park boast orienteering and electronic treasure hunt trails.
  • Just a stone’s throw away from Gravesend you can enjoy superb shopping at Bluewater, billed as Europe’s largest, most innovative shopping centre. Its vital statistics are impressive: 28 million visitors annually, 330 brands, 50 restaurants and bars and 13,000 free parking spaces.
  • The western area of Kent is well connected too: Gravesend railway station has services to take visitors to and from Stratford International in 12 minutes and Central London in 24 minutes. Eurostar trains from nearby Ebbsfleet International Station reach Paris in just over two hours and Brussels in one and a half hours.

Retirement homes
in Kent

The Eastern corner of England, the county of Kent, is affectionately referred to as the “Garden of England”, and for good reason. A retirement in Kent will bring you several things to enjoy; from some of the best beaches in Europe, to thousands of exhilarating walks and hiking opportunities, to an exciting food and drinks scene.
