Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

The opportunity to live in a state of the art retirement apartment with every modern comfort, and security systems included to give complete independence and peace of mind. All maintenance taken care of leaving you to enjoy your time as you wish from this wonderfully located apartment.

You really can relax and enjoy your life to the full at Churchill Lodge, whether you want peace and quiet behind your own front door or you want to enjoy the many social activities regularly on offer, or even just have a cup of tea and a chat with other owners in the warm, comfortable communal lounge. There is also the extensive wonderful landscaped garden to enjoy in the warmer weather, all maintenance free, but keen gardeners are most definitely welcome to get involved. And for the less keen, the patio area is directly accessible from both the lounge and the second bedroom and the vendor enjoyed keeping an array of outdoor plants and flowers on the patio.

This apartment is unique in that it is one of 2 flats in the block with private access from the outside of the lodge and it has a feature wall creating a private patio garden. The pathway leads down to the apartment from the car park and gardens and is great for quick leven access to the flat when you're carrying the shopping.

The apartment itself is spacious, with excellent storage facilities. It is one of the largest apartments in the lodge and of course being on the ground floor is an asset. There is a 24 hour Careline system, secure phone entry system and intruder alarms; you really will feel safe and secure, even the smaller details have been given great thought such as gently illuminated light switches. The lodge also boasts a mobility buggy store with charging points.

One of the many benefits of the Lodge is the furnished guest suites for friends and family. The cost for your guests staying here is just £15 per night for single occupation or £20 for a double(only £10 each). And there are a number of Churchill Lodges throughout the country from Truro to Wetherby and these same prices apply to you if you want to go and stay in another lodge. And this apartment is next door to the guest room so your family and friends can be close to you.

The lodge has a covered mobility buggy store with charging points just outside the main entrance.




Churchill Lodge is ideally situated in Lilliput, a prestigious and character location but maintaining a village feel. Across the road is a mini Co-Op store and just down the road are amenities which include a Tesco Express, and the popular Mark Bennett's award winning artisan patisserie and the renowned TJ's fish and chip shop. Just around one corner is the Lilliput Health centre.

The famous award winning beaches of Sandbanks, and the chain ferry to the Purbeck Hills and Studland are less than a mile away. Likewise Compton Acres Gardens and the popular tearooms there. There are excellent restaurants, eateries and coffee shop in both Sandbanks, the nearby Canford Cliffs and Ashley Cross villages.

There are good bus routes into both Poole and Bournemouth town centres. The Wessex Way is just a couple of miles away providing dual carriageway routes out of Bournemouth to the New Forest, Southampton, and the UK motorway network. Parkstone Railway Station is also less than a mile away - London by rail is just 2 hours and there is also a direct route to Manchester. On the outskirts of Bournemouth is the International Airport.

Being in Lilliput, being no more than 150 yards from the sea makes this one of the most sought after and prestigious of the Churchill Retirement Lodges. You have worked hard-this is the opportunity to spend your retirement exactly as you want to, free from maintenance chores. And when you want to go away, you can do so with the peace of mind that your apartment will be safe.

For Churchill Retirement Lodges, you need to be 60 years old with a partner 55.
