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.
Located on the high street of Berkhamsted, Sheldon Lodge is a stylish development of 48 one and two bedroom apartments. This pretty town was recently listed as one of the Best Places to Live by the Sunday Times.
The lodge is surrounded by lovely countryside, bordering the Chiltern Hills and placed between Tring and Hemel Hempstead, with the River Bulbourne and Grand Union Canal running through the town.
Steeped in history, Berkhamsted is where Duke William of Normandy was offered his crown in 1066. It also has links to a number of other notable people including Geoffrey Chaucer and novelist Graham Greene who life and works are celebrated by a festival each year.
Places of interest include Berkhamsted Castle and St Peter’s Church, as well as the Grand Union Canal. There are also various walks that can be followed across the town including the Heritage Walk.
The town itself provides excellent shopping and leisure facilities including a Waitrose supermarket, a library, the Rex cinema, sports centres and various cafes and restaurants - including canal side eateries.
Travelling to and from Berkhamsted is very easy as there are regular trains to Milton Keynes Central, South Croydon, Tring and London Euston and the buses run to surrounding towns.
