Enjoy an active, independent retirement

Go behind the scenes to see what life is like in one of our retirement developments. Find out about the social activities and how you can enjoy a busy social life while maintaining your independence in retirement.

The benefits

We believe that spending time with other people adds to your happiness and sense of wellbeing. In times gone by, everyone knew who their neighbours were and this made communities stronger and more secure. That's why we've designed our retirement lodges to help you connect with the people around you and get to know your neighbours.

Living in a retirement village gives you the option to socialise as much or as little as you like. Our retirement community tends to attract like-minded people, so you'll find it easy to fit in and make friends. Regular events help you mingle, get out of your private apartment, and be active.

"It's really been an enormous relief and
the people here are lovely"
- Ruth, Owner in Drayton

From garden parties to musical events, we design events and activities with traditional British values in mind. It's all designed to help you get the most out of life. When you're living in a retirement apartment built by Churchill, you'll also find shops and other amenities close by. This means you'll find it easy to do the things that are important to you, and have everything on your doorstop.

Your retirement deserves to be happy, relaxed and sociable. Live life to the fullest, whatever your age, by enjoying the benefits of living in a retirement community. Download our brochure to find out more about your nearest lodge.

Simmonds Lodge in Drayton

"We are a very independent couple but having the added security and benefits of having an on-site Lodge Manager, especially for future peace of mind as we get older, is great. We thoroughly enjoy having the company of the other Owners too and have quickly made new friends.”

Sheldon Lodge in Berkhamsted

"Everything I need is close by, the location couldn’t be better. I’ve still got my car at the minute but I decided to sell it because I just don’t need it anymore."

The social life

Retirement should give you more time for the things that interest you. That's why our Lodge Managers create a varied programme of events enabling you to do the things you love. You can enjoy fashion shows and wine tastings without leaving the Lodge, or attend a garden party in the beautiful landscaped gardens. Glide across the floor at one of our tea dances, or attend a musical event with songs you'll remember from the good old days!

Living in a retirement village gives you lots of opportunity to socialise with your neighbours, or enjoy the privacy of your own apartment. Whether you're in a couple or on your own, you'll find it easy to make new friends with other people here. We hold regular coffee mornings and afternoon teas in our elegant Owners' Lounge so you can get to know your neighbours.

If you're on your own, living in one of Churchill's lodges brings you into regular contact with people so you never feel isolated. Retirement should be a happy and fulfilling time for everyone. Living in a retirement village is one way to ensure you get the best out of this period in your life.
