Ballard Lodge is an exclusive development, with a lift service to all floors, of 20 one and two bedroom retirement apartments in the village of Shepperton and was named after Shepperton’s famous author J G Ballard. Shepperton is a charming village alongside the River Thames and home to the famous Shepperton Studios, known internationally for producing Oscar winning feature films.
Ballard Lodge is perfectly situated at one end of the main High Street with easy access to every shop, amenity and leisure activity you can imagine. Public transport is excellent with bus stops just outside, the M25 and M3 connect Shepperton for road travel up and down the country and the local railway station has direct links into several London stations.
Ballard 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.
Our Lodge manager, David, is on hand to support the owners and keep the development in perfect shape. David 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.
Ballard 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.
The development requires at least one apartment resident to be over the age of 60 with any second resident 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.
