Dean Lodge is a beautiful development of 42 one and two bedroom retirement apartments located in Southbourne, a popular suburb of the coastal town of Bournemouth. The Lodge holds an enviable position set on the cliff top above Southbourne’s golden sandy beach, offering spectacular views across Bournemouth Bay and towards the Isle of Wight.


It is named after Graham Dean, who has worked with his son for Churchill Retirement Living since it was founded and has helped achieve the first class finish Churchill has become well known for.


The Lodge is directly opposite a path leading along the cliff top and down onto the stunning beaches and just a few hundred yards to the main shopping area, Southbourne Grove, a traditional high street with some independent and individual shops including bakeries, salons, florists, pubs, cafes and restaurants. Leading from the Southbourne Grove shops to the cliff top is Fisherman’s Walk, a green Flag Award winning woodland walk with a nature trail, woodland flowers and shrubs, a formal walled garden with ornamental pond and a bandstand which is used for regular events that take place in the gardens throughout the year.


Southbourne is perfectly situated for quick and easy access into Bournemouth Town Centre, Christchurch, Hengistbury Head and The New Forest. Local transport is excellent with regular busses, Pokesdown railway station nearby with direct links into London Waterloo and Bournemouth International Airport just a few miles away for trips further afield.


Dean Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront. The apartment has an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. Careline integrated intruder alarm, secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.


Dean Lodge’s manager, Ameila, is on hand throughout the day to support the Owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Amelia arranges many regular events in the Owners’ Lounge from coffee mornings to games afternoons. For any visiting guests, the furnished twin Guest Suite is perfect and available for just £15 per night for 1 visitor and £20 (£10 each) for 2 visitors. The same excellent value is available across more than 100 Churchill Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.


Dean Lodge is managed by the award winning Millstream Management Services, working closely with Churchill Retirement Living and Stratton & King to maintain the highest standards of maintenance and service for every lodge and owner.


Dean Lodge requires at least one apartment Owner to be over the age of 60 with any second Owner over the age of 55. Each Apartment is completely self-contained with its own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it. When you fancy some company, you’ll find the Owners’ Lounge a popular and relaxed place to meet.
