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

An historic market town on the River Thames

Abingdon-on-Thames is an historic market town located a few miles outside Oxford. It is considered to be one of the oldest towns in England and has established itself as a bustling, pretty town; a simply perfect location for our new retirement homes. Abingdon-on-Thames has everything you could want and need.

  • The shopping precinct offers all the local amenities you’ll need.
  • Regular markets are held in the square throughout the year and the Local Excellence Market offering locally sourced produce, comes to town once every three months.
  • There is plenty of history in Abingdon-on-Thames. The Abbey that once stood here has all but disappeared, but historic buildings associated with it still remain, including the Long Gallery and St Nicholas’ Church, both of which are open for visitors throughout the year.

Testimonials

Sheila Holt

"My apartment is very well designed for comfort and safety, which is paramount for single living. In fact the whole building and the people in it makes you feel safe and comfortable. After losing my husband it is giving me peace of mind, and my family are also glad to know that I am safe, warm and happy. If you are in a house that is becoming a worry as you get older, with the upkeep and bills, I would urge you to think about Churchill. Having a Lodge Manager to call on is so helpful, and the lifestyle on offer here can offer you so much."
