Why Move to Bedfordshire?
Bedfordshire is a stunning county which shares its borders with Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, and Northamptonshire. Consisting of 15 towns (Luton being the largest) and 87 villages, there are no cities in the county. With its central position, excellent travel links and even its own airport for sunshine getaways, the quieter parts of Bedfordshire have not gone unnoticed by London commuters.
Both the East Coast Mainline and Thameslink rail service run through the county into Kings Cross as do the M1, A1, A5 and A6 making it very well connected indeed.
For some of the county’s southerly towns, our capital city is a commutable distance away; Luton is just a 25-minute journey by train, absolutely ideal.
Recreationally, the Marston Vales and Chiltern Hills are just a couple of the many incredible areas of breath-taking countryside within Bedfordshire’s borders.
Top businesses are basing themselves within the county; Autoglass, EasyJet, Monarch Airlines, Whitbread and Jordans Cereals all have either their headquarters or large bases in the here. It is also a great place to bring up a family with plenty of child friendly attractions available such as Whipsnade Zoo and Woburn Safari Park.
If history is more to your liking, then there are the wonderful quaint towns like Wood End and Stagsden, close to some exceptional stately homes and gardens like Woburn Abbey.
Home to a diverse population Bedfordshire is a melting pot when it comes to ethnicity. Many people of Italian, Eastern European, and Asian descent have settled in its towns and villages.
If you want to live somewhere with an easy commute, reasonable property prices and without sacrificing your love of green spaces, then head for Bedfordshire.
