We care..but we’re not a care home

At Churchill we build, sell, and manage retirement flats and we care about supporting you throughout your journey with us.

With your front door you can come and go as you please, with the peace of mind that your flat is in safe hands for weekends away and holidays. Your Lodge Manager will always be on hand, providing a friendly face for you and your family to turn to.

Churchill is independently owned by the McCarthy family, so heritage, passion, pride and quality are embedded throughout the company.

If you want companionship, safety and security and no more worries about maintenance, you can have it all with Churchill…We Care.

History of Churchill

Churchill Retirement Living was founded in 1994 by brothers Spencer and Clinton McCarthy. Originally starting out as Emlor Homes, they specialised in building stone and thatched cottages in and around Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire. However, by 1998, the company had grown so much and was voted ‘Housebuilder of the Year’ by WhatHouse? Magazine.

In 2000, we decided to focus exclusively on the development of purpose-built retirement developments. Then in 2003, Emlor Homes was renamed Churchill Retirement Living.

As a company we’ve been changing retirement living for the better for 20 years, and we continually strive to be the retirement housebuilder of choice. With over 160 retirement developments across the UK, we are proud to say we have a trusted, quality product that is supported by our experience, knowledge and our award winning management company, Millstream Management Services.
