Following on from our previous successful phases, Hansons Reach in Stewartby, just south of Bedford, is now offering a new collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes.
Stewartby has an intriguing background as a model village originally built for the workers of the London Brick Company. Today, it's a popular residential area that's halfway between Bedford and Milton Keynes. It's a convenient location if you commute to either town. With the A1 to the east, it's a popular base for journeys to Letchworth Garden City, Stevenage, and Welwyn Garden City. The M1 at Milton Keynes is the area's other main motorway route. Bedfordshire may be well-connected but it's a very rural county, so you'll enjoy exploring the little villages and following the local footpaths off the beaten track. Start with the Forest of Marston Vale – a national forest, and your local country park and lake. It's right on your doorstep.
Hansons Reach is in the perfect location for those who enjoy the great outdoors. The development is near the Forest of Marston Vale, incorporating the Millennium Country Park, which covers 225 hectares – perfect for walking and cycling. The park features several lakes including the large Stewartby Lake, extensive wetlands and the Forest Visitor Centre. The village is also the proposed location for the National Institute for Research into Aquatic Habitats, set to be the world's largest fresh-water aquarium. Stewartby is conveniently close to the popular town of Bedford, renowned for its history, culture and beautiful riverside parks. The main high street has a wide range of shops, and the Harpur Centre is home to 35 stores. Bedford is also a great place to while away a few hours as there's an art gallery, a museum and The Embankment - a mile-long footpath bordered by a tree-lined public park and well-kept gardens. Milton Keynes and the cities of Oxford and Cambridge are within easy reach for more shopping choices and days out.
