What is Bedfordshire like to live in?
Bedfordshire’s primary attraction for buyers and sellers is its travel connections into London, Oxford and Cambridge.

Some of Bedfordshire’s property hotspots
For larger properties and a flexible renting market, try Bedford. You can find flats within converted Victorian houses that sit close to the centre’s amenities. Luton is Bedfordshire’s commuter hotspot thanks to the airport, and here more modern properties are available, as well as some 1920s or 30s homes further from the town’s station.
Maintaining the county’s reputation for good travel connections is Sandy, a former Roman settlement which is now known better for its walks into the surrounding countryside. This is a great area to move to for families that want idyllic market-town living, within easy reach of the A1 for travelling further afield.
Oakley village, 10-minute drive from Bedford’s town centre, has many walks that follow the river, including one that tracks past the stately Oakley House.
