Abbots Lodge is an exclusive development of 49 one and two bedroom apartments in the City of Canterbury. The Lodge is in the perfect location just to the edge of the City Centre giving easy access to the impressive range of shops and places to eat and visit. The cathedral City of Canterbury lies on the River Stour and is situated in the County of Kent, known as the Garden of England. There is a wide variety of leisure activities and amenities in Canterbury, including a visit to the famous Canterbury Cathedral, which is the oldest in England, the Ghost Tour around the City and historic river trips to name a few.
Canterbury is home of Kent County Cricket Club with the St Lawrence Ground being situated to the South of the City, one of the oldest grounds on which first-class cricket is played. Another famous attraction is the recently re-opened Marlowe Theatre which is named after the playwright Christopher Marlowe, who was born and attended school in the City.
The Canterbury district has something to offer everyone from the meandering rivers, lush green pastures and ancient woodlands to the neighbouring traditional seaside towns of Herne Bay and Whitstable with their beautiful beaches and traditional charm rich in maritime history.
Local transport is excellent with bus stops almost outside and train station just a few hundred yards away with direct links into St Pancras International, London Charing Cross and London Victoria. The Eurostar at Ashford International, which opens up a gateway to Europe, is just a 20 minute rail journey away.
Abbots 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.
Abbots Lodge’s manager, Selia, is on hand throughout the day to support the residents and keep the development in perfect shape. Selia 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.
Abbots 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.
