Our apartment is ideal for escaping the world after a hectic day spent sightseeing, exploring or shopping!
Our apartment is in the "Heritage Quarter" of Bedford and in a quiet area at the end of a cul-de-sac. The main town centre is 50 mts along a walkway between two 4 storey buildings and the River Great Ouse is a 2 minute walk away.
The town has a wide range of restaurants including Italian, Portugese, Chinese, Indian, Mexican, as well as British. We have many Italian people living in Bedford and so lots of choice with their restaurants and food shopping.
There are many interesting places to visit around Bedford including stately homes, vintage aircraft museum, wakeboarding centre, Santa Pod drag racing strip, indoor skydiving wind tunnel, safari park, Glen Millar museum, London gliding club, to name just a few. A great website to browse is www.visitbedford.co.uk .
Bedford is ideally placed in a central location for sightseeing in other towns such as London, Cambridge, Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Birmingham, all of which are serviced by Bedford's train and bus service. Both the bus and train stations are an easy walk from our apartment.
Bedford is on a major, dual carriageway, road between the M1 and A1 main routes, and so has excellent links to all parts of the UK via the motorway network. London/Luton airport is the nearest airport at 30-40 min drive or by train.
