Just up the road

Up the road, the charming historic town of Bedford awaits. There has been a settlement here since Saxon times and the town has always had a flourishing market. Today you’ll find shopping centres and an open air market, with a further retail centre just outside town. There’s parkland to explore and towpath walks to enjoy. This is a part of the green belt where you really can get out and enjoy the fresh air.

Bedfordshire has a long and proud history and the jewel in the crown is Woburn Abbey with its magnificent collections of art, furniture, silver and gold, not to mention the famous Safari Park.
This might be a small county, but there are lots of things to do. Whether you fancy paragliding from a hilltop or relaxing in the spa at Luton Hoo, indoor surfing at Twinwoods or taking part in the river festival at Bedford, everything you need is on hand.

You’re on the right track

It’s just a short drive from your front door to Bedford Station and the journey to London St Pancras takes less than 40 minutes on the fast train. There are also handy rail connections to the Midlands, South Coast and Gatwick Airport.

By car, it’s easy to connect with larger towns such as Milton Keynes (check out the indoor skiing centre) and Cambridge (with its magnificent history). The M1 and A1 are both nearby, so you have a direct motorway route to all parts of the country.
