Chiswell Place offers a selection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroomed homes in New Cardington, a vibrant new community created south-east of Bedford. You will find our stylish, contemporary homes in a setting inspired by traditional town-planning values. The result is charming street-scenes within a landscape of tree-lined avenues, open spaces, a village square, and village green with recreational areas, all linked by a network of footpaths and cyclepaths. There’s a local Tesco Express and a new primary school, with a GP surgery to be found in Shortstown.
New Cardington takes this historic area into an exciting new age. It was formerly reknowned as the home of the Royal Airship Works founded back in 1919. Barrage balloons were later built on the site. Today, it is gaining status as the smartest address in town.
Chiswell Place is conveniently situated within easy reach of Bedford, approximately 4 miles away, and the area is served by bus. There’s a fast, frequent service from Bedford main line station to London St Pancras (and Eurostar). The smaller Bedford and St John’s railway station provides more local services. The M1 and A1 are easily reached by car, and London Luton Airport is just under 30 miles away. The new A421 (Bedford Southern Bypass) offers speedy access to Milton Keynes and Cambridge.
Bedford has all that you are ever likely to need, including a large retail sector, NHS general hospital, museum, and education for all ages - including the excellent Harpur Trust schools in Bedford (private) and the University of Bedford.
