Mitchell Lodge is a delightful development of 36 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments located in the village of Bitterne, a suburb of the maritime city of Southampton. It is named after Reginald Joseph Mitchell, the designer of the Vickers Supermarine Spitfire fighter plane. Reginald Mitchell lived in Southampton and the Spitfire first flew form Eastleigh Aerodrome, now Southampton Airport, on 5th March 1936.
Mitchell Lodge is ideally located for the centre of the village, a pedestrianised shopping precinct, which offer a wide selection of shop and amenities; supermarkets and High Street banks can be found alongside traditional bakers and butchers. The precinct is also home to a weekly market.
Southampton itself is one of Britain’s most historic ports and is a vibrant and modern city. The city is firmly established as the UK’s number one cruise port with a waterfront that welcomes some of the world’s greatest liners and cruise ships.
As well as the right maritime heritage, there is also a wealth of beautifully kept parks and green spaces, which rightly earn Southampton the title of ‘the green city’. Southampton is also on the doorstep of England’s smallest national park, The New Forest, an ancient forest which consists of the 145 square miles of open heath and woodlands, home to its famous wild ponies.
Getting out of Bitterne couldn’t be easier. The village is well served by public transport with regular train services to Southampton, Portsmouth and Southsea and buses catering for a variety of local journeys, enabling you to travel when you wish.
Mitchell 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.
Mitchell Lodge’s manager is on hand throughout the day to support the residents and keep the development in perfect shape. they arrange 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.
