Many developments offer beautifully furnished Owners’ Lounges that are designed with our customers in mind. They have wifi and many of them feature coffee bars, so they’re ideal for socialising with new neighbours. You can also just relax in the corner with a good book if you prefer. The Owners’ Lounge can be booked out for an event, which is ideal for birthdays , while we run a number of events in the Owners’ Lounge throughout the year.

Lodge Manager
Every Churchill development has a Lodge Manager on-site who is on hand to help with all manner of different things. They look after the maintenance of the development and oversee any work being carried out, but they are a friendly point of contact when you want someone to talk to, as well as arranging events in the development throughout the year. They’re also available if you want to lock up and leave your apartment for a holiday, and will ensure everything is secure when you’re away.

Guest Suite
All Churchill developments have a Guest Suite provided for visiting relatives or friends. Reservations are arranged via the Lodge Manager and can be booked in advance. The Guest Suite is ideal if you want to have your loved ones close by during their visit.

Landscape Grounds

A great deal of importance is placed on the communal grounds, providing a welcome retreat for you, your family and friends. Some developments have beautiful gardens, others have landscaped grounds and some even feature a roof terrace – ideal for enjoying your morning coffee in the summer months.
