All apartments at Churchill Retirement Living are completely self-contained with their own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it.
There is a choice of one and two bedroom apartments and they may all vary slightly when it comes to dimensions and position of rooms.
Alfred Lodge is a delightful development of 26 one and two bedroom retirement apartments in the beautiful West Dorset market town of Bridport. It is named after King Alfred the Great who created the ‘Burgh of Brydian’ establishing the town as a burgh in the 9th century. It features a spacious and contemporary Owners’ Lounge & Coffee Bar and a patio area within the secluded landscaped gardens for Owners to enjoy.
The town’s thriving high street is home to a number of independent family-run shops alongside some well known high street stores and comes alive every Wednesday and Saturday when the bustling street market comes to town.
Bridport also hosts monthly Farmers’, Craft and Vintage markets and five annual festivals including the entertaining Hat Festival, the Ropewalk Fair and Bridport Food Festival; a week-long celebration of local food.
Birdport was voted as one of the Best Places to Live by the Sunday Times lists for 2018, making it an ideal location to retire.
Classed as a Beacon Town, recognised for the high quality and variety of local food, you will find a wealth of award winning local food producers in and around the town and restaurants and pubs serving great British classics using some of the finest local ingredients and of course exceptional seafood.
The Arts Centre and Electric Palace present an exciting programme of film, theatre, music, comedy and dance, and the town is also home to some fabulous open parks including the Millennium Green and Borough Gardens.
The local area has a wealth of fascinating attractions, many of which celebrate the history and art influences in the town.
