Churchill Retirement Living

​Churchill Retirement Living is a privately owned, family-run housebuilder, and is the UK’s second largest retirement homes specialist. It was founded in 1994 by brothers Spencer and Clinton McCarthy, and has an ambition to be selling 1,000 homes a year by 2019. It has a head office in Hampshire and regional offices across England.

Homes for sale from the housebuilder are apartments designed for retirement living, typically one- or two-bedroom apartments with some communal facilities and a 24-hour hotline available in case of emergencies. It offers services to help buyers, including home exchange, removal services and sometimes help with legal fees and specialist financial advice for the over-55s.

The company chooses the sites for its new developments based on location and good transport links so residents are able to easily access local amenities and leisure facilities.

Churchill Retirement Homes has won numerous awards over the years, including several WhatHouse? Awards, notably the Housebuilder of the Year title in 2016, becoming the first retirement specialist ever to win. They won Bronze in the Best Medium Housebuilder category at the WhatHouse? Awards in both 2020 and 2021, Bronze for Best Retirement Development in 2022 and most recently won Gold for Best Retirement Home Developer at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023.

In 2015, it launched the Churchill Foundation, with Dame Esther Rantzen DBE as its Patron. The foundation aims to transform lives through investment in three areas: the support and wellbeing of the young, the promotion of health among the elderly and the relief of sickness, disease and human suffering. It also supports smaller, local charities with donations.

Churchill Retirement Living, based in Ringwood, Hampshire, champions the sector at every opportunity – a voice vital to the overall health of the housing market, especially in the face of
overwhelming demographics that shout how critical it is to provide homes for later living, with the added value of taking the strain off health and social care services.

The Churchill schemes, with a network of outstanding lodge managers front of house, promote independence alongside friendship in safe, secure environments, and 97% of its customers would recommend the housebuilder.
