Keyes Lodge is a beautiful development of 68 one and two bedroom retirement apartments located in the ever popular town of Dartford, situated on the border of Kent, next to the River Thames. Dartford is the principal town in the borough of Dartford and is home to Dartford F.C. It is situated in the northwest corner of Kent, 16 miles (26 km) east south-east of Central London. Dartford became a market town in medieval times and, although today it is principally a commuter town for Greater London, it has a long history of religious, industrial and cultural importance and has an important rail hub. The main through-road avoids the town itself and the town centre offers many facilities including Prospect Place Retail Park, the Orchard theatre, library, museum, central park, weekly markets and an array of local shops and public houses. Dartford has plenty of schools catering from reception to year 13 which includes four grammar schools at secondary level. The town centre is situated in a valley through which the River Darent flows, and where the old road from London to Dover crossed: hence the name, from Darent ford. Dartford also has a mainline railway station with regular services to London and road links from the area giving access to A2/M2, A20/M20, M25 and Dartford Tunnel as well as the Bluewater Shopping Complex and Ebbsfleet International station.
Keyes 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. A 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.
Keyes Lodge’s manager, Mark, is on hand throughout the day to support the owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Mark 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 150 Churchill Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
Keyes 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.
Keyes Lodge 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.
