Located off Dormer Avenue on the edge of an established residential area, The Woodlands is bordered by mature woodland and benefits from stunning views of Wing’s ancient Castle Hill Mound and All Saints Church.
A new circular footpath will wind its way around the perimeter of the development, taking in the neighbouring woodland, while the new homes will also be served by an equipped children’s play area on site. All the village’s local amenities and services are conveniently situated within walking distance.
Shopping and entertainment
The rural village of Wing is conveniently situated just a short drive away from the bustling centre of Leighton Buzzard – but it also benefits from its own range of local amenities to cater for all your day-to-day needs.
A convenience store, pharmacy, post office, hairdresser and a choice of traditional pubs can be found among the thatched cottages and half-timbered buildings of the charming High Street.
There’s also a public library, village hall, local GP surgery, fish and chip shop and Indian restaurant just a few minutes’ walk from home. Meanwhile, Jubilee Green recreation ground, Wing Sports and Social Club and its neighbouring playing fields, tennis courts and bowling green provide plenty of opportunities for leisure.
Leighton Buzzard town centre is just three miles from The Woodlands for an appealing variety of independent stores, boutiques, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and bars alongside a wide range of high street retailers and supermarkets. Open-air markets, including a popular farmers’ market, are also hosted regularly in the town.
Unusually for a village of its size, Wing itself offers educational opportunities for children of all ages, with the well-regarded Overstone Combined School (incorporating Wing Children’s Centre) located less than half a mile from home.
For secondary-age children, The Cottesloe School is also within easy walking distance while there’s a wider choice of secondary schools and further education centres available in Leighton Buzzard.
For commuters, The Woodlands benefits from excellent local road links, with the A418 offering easy access to both Leighton Buzzard and Aylesbury, and the A4146 providing connections to Milton Keynes and the M1 north. Luton Airport and the southbound M1 are also easily accessible via the A505.
Leighton Buzzard railway station, meanwhile, offers regular services to London Euston in around 45 minutes, as well as to Milton Keynes, Northampton and Birmingham.
