Barnes Lodge is a delightful development of 40 one and two bedroom apartments located in the historic town of Dorchester. It is named after William Barnes, the acclaimed dialect Poet. He was born in Bagmer but lived and worked as a school teacher in Dorchester for many years. From 1862 until his death he was rector of Winterborne Came with Whitcombe. There is a statue of William Barnes outside St Peter's Church in Dorchester.

Barnes Lodge is located on Bridport Road and has a Sainsbury's close by. The nearby bustling high street is home to a number of specialist shops, boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops and high street chains.

The Town is home to a number of museums which include The Roman Town House, The Dinosaur Museum, The Terracotta Warriors Museum, The Dorset Teddy Bear Museum, Dorset County Museum and The Tutankhamun Exhibition.  

Churchill developments have been carefully designed to make life easier for those in their retirement years.

There's a winning combination of design and functionality in both the kitchen and shower room. Tiled and colour co-ordinated, they are specifically designed to be pleasing to the eye.

Kitchens are modern with colour co-ordinated worktops and built-in fridge and freezer to give you convenience and Peace of mind. The oven is located at just the right height to save you bending down and there's a separate ceramic hob and chimney hood.

All apartments have a shower room, with selected two bedroom apartments benefiting from a cloakroom. The development is heated via communal air source heat pumps which use the latent heat in the outside air to heat the development. The system is energy efficient and therefore reduces running costs as the pumps are able to produce more energy than they consume. This delivers a very efficient form of heating.

Finally all apartments are inspected by the Churchill Customer Services Department to ensure they are handed over to the standard of finish and quality expected by Churchill discerning Customers.

Once again, please do call to arrange an appointment and allow us to show you around your potential new home.
