Howell Testimonial 1920x1080

Pat Howell

Churchill Owner

"Just across the road we have a handy bus service and various shopping centres, other places of interest such as services museums and an outdoor outlet park which is a hive of activity.  As for me this is one long holiday, lovely walks, a long sea front, some places quiet and peaceful and others full of activity."

Bott Testimonial 1920x10802

Mr & Mrs Bott

Churchill Owners

"The Owners' Lounge is comfortable and everywhere has wonderful fixtures and fittings. We’d seen other retirement developments but the care and attention to detail was nothing like what we saw here. We were so worried that it would be drab and uninspiring and it is quite the opposite – it's like being in a 5 star hotel!”

Worthing Testimonial 1920x1080

Owners at Catherine Lodge, Worthing

Catherine Lodge, Worthing

“Everyone at Catherine Lodge is very involved with the social life that provides so much fun and enjoyment for us. We do lots of different activities, such as Christmas parties, fish & chip lunches, keep fit sessions and birthday parties. The Lodge Manager is great, she is approachable and we are all very fond of her. A good Lodge Manager makes all the difference!”

McCusker Testimonial 1920x1080

Gill McCusker

Middlemarch Lodge, Rickmansworth

“This development has ticked all the boxes for me. Churchill seem to find locations that are near the places that mean a lot to people – the shops, the library, the Council offices. That to me is the most important thing. It’s no good to me if I can’t live somewhere that suits my lifestyle. It’s excellent. I have settled in and have no regrets about the move”

Cindy Testimonial 1920x1080

Cindy Howlett

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."

Gamer Testimonial 1920x1080

Mr Gaymer

King Henry Lodge in Chingford

"It’s absolutely perfect for me. Being so close I still use the same local shops and doctor’s surgery, so I still see many of my old friends and neighbours. But I also go to coffee mornings and spend time in the Owner’s Lounge where I can meet new people too."

Ricketts Testimonial 1920x1081

Mr & Mrs Ricketts

Sheldon Lodge in Berkhamsted

"Moving to Sheldon Lodge was definitely the right move for us and we would recommend Churchill Retirement to everyone. There’s nothing they haven’t thought about to make life easier. The apartments are well designed, the location is perfect and the people here are so lovely."

Fleming Testimonial 1920x1080

Mr Fleming

Nicholls Lodge in Bishop's Stortford

“I used some of the services from Churchill to help me move – like the Home Exchange, where they bought my house so I could move quickly. It was very good – it took the stress out of moving.”

Rhona Norman Testimonial 1920x1080

Mrs Norman

King Harold Lodge, Waltham Abbey

"Churchill is one of the only developers who will let you bring your pet so it’s a huge selling point. There are some rules – you have to have a ground floor apartment - which I wanted anyway, and you have to be responsible – which any animal lover and pet owner would be. I was delighted to find somewhere with such a good pet policy and Amber has settled in very nicely."

Lacey Testimonial 1920x1081

Mr & Mrs Lacey

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.”

Carpenter Testimonial 1920x10808

Mr and Mrs Carpenter

Summerson Lodge, Portsmouth

“It is a great relief to us not to have to worry about the repairs and maintenance of a large house anymore and it is a weight off our children and grandchildrens’ minds to know we are safe and secure here. We would encourage anyone who is considering downsizing to visit and find out just how many advantages there are to this way of living.” 

Woods Testimonial 1920x1080

Mr Woods

Petlands Lodge, Haywards Heath

“Having looked at other apartments in the area I settled on Petlands Lodge, for the central location and free parking. My apartment has a balcony which is most enjoyable in the lovely summer weather we have. It really is a pleasure living at Petlands Lodge.”

Wales Testimonial 1920x1080

Mrs Wales

Petlands Lodge, Haywards Heath

“I sold my London property through the Churchill Selling Made Easy scheme, and with the invaluable help of Karen & Vivienne I am now settled into my new apartment and have made many new friends already. The location is great for nipping into Marks & Spencer and all the other high street shops. With the darker evenings drawing in I will not feel as isolated or lonely as I use to in my old house."

Mercer Testimonial 1920x1080

Mr & Mrs Mercer

Petlands Lodge, Haywards Heath

“Having moved from an older property that required ongoing maintenance which inevitably took a lot of time and effort we found this was encroaching more and more on our retirement, when we wanted to spend our time with the grandchildren, not maintaining an old house! Having moved into our apartment we now have no maintenance worries. This means we’re now able to spend time with our grandsons, who often come and see us at Petlands Lodge. We haven’t had a moment's regret in our new apartment”

Jean Redfern Penzance 1920x1080

Jean Redfearn

Mount's Bay Lodge, Penzance

I was the first person to move into an apartment at Mount's Bay Lodge and I want to say how much I appreciated the warm welcome I received from the staff, and the flowers and other gifts. The apartment is exactly what I hoped for, ideally presented for downsizing into such a lovely setting. I look forward to enjoying my life here!

Sharon Buckley Cirencester 1920x1080

Sharon Buckley

Beecham Lodge, Cirencester

My children heard about Beecham Lodge and recommended I take a look, as they knew it would make a real difference for me to live somewhere completely new. The whole process of moving was just wonderful, everything went smoothly, the sales executives were extremely helpful and it was such a weight off my mind.

Geoffrey Lawrence Carshalton 1920x1080

Geoffrey Lawrence

Laurel Lodge, Carshalton

"There are several like-minded people here and it’s a good community to be a part of. Living here is as near perfect as I expected it to be. I’d been considering retirement living for a while, and when I found out about Laurel Lodge it was the perfect solution. Downsizing was tough, and I had to be ruthless about de-cluttering a lifetime’s worth of possessions, but I got plenty of help and it was well worth it now I’m here in my attractive new apartment. I can see why the process of de-cluttering is daunting for some, but I’d encourage anyone else to do the same and they will reap the benefits once it’s done."

Ken Lewis Dartford 1920x1080

Ken Lewis

Keyes Lodge, Dartford

“I was one of the first to move in. I like it here and am settling in nicely. There’s a good crowd here and a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with social activities to join in with if I want to. We usually have a jigsaw on the go in the Owners’ Lounge and there’s often someone around to chat to over a cup of tea.”
