Local area

Ampthill has quite a royal history - it was once one of King Henry VIII-s favourite towns and the home of Catherine of Aragon for a few years. In 1242, Henry III passed a law for Ampthill to hold a weekly market, which is still going today - the perfect place for picking up fresh produce and knick-knacks. While the famous 15th-century Ampthill Castle is unfortunately no longer here, you can still visit the remaining ponds and Ampthill Park, which now stands on the old grounds. The park features work from the renowned landscaper Lancelot -Capability- Brown and the grand Ampthill Park House, built in 1686.

Other notable buildings include the Ossory Cottages, a row of picturesque half-timber buildings often used on postcards for the area. The White Hart is just 0.2 miles from our proposed development and is a great place to eat out on a special occasion. For church-goers, there are weekly services held at St Andrews CoE, an impressive site in itself. Houghton House is another popular Ampthill attraction - this sprawling 17th-century estate is believed to be the inspiration for -House Beautiful- in John Bunyan-s The Pilgrim-s Progress. If you-d like to get more involved in Ampthill-s lively community, there are a number of leisure clubs you can join, offering a range of sports from tennis to bowls.
