About the Development

Surrounded by delightful Bedfordshire countryside, yet just 40minutes from Kings Cross by direct train from nearby Arlesey, Shefford couldn’t be better placed for city commuters, offering you the very best of both worlds. Add in a choice of good and outstanding schools, all within walking distance, plus a host of local facilities right on your doorstep, and you have the perfect place to set up home and raise your family.
The superb Heritage Collection homes at Lucas Gardens also offer the best of both worlds, with classic, Arts and Crafts inspired exterior architecture and modern, family friendly interiors, designed for the way you live today. These two, three and four-bedroom homes are coming soon, subject to planning, and they are sure to be in great demand, so make sure you don’t miss out. Register your interest today and be the first to know the news. Remember, you only need 5% deposit with Help to Buy.

Amenities

Shefford has a good selection of local shops, with a Tesco Express convenience store just a short walk from the development and a Morrisons supermarket in the town.
For GPs, the Shefford Health Centre on Hitchin Rd is less than half a mile away (Sat Nav SG17 5FS, call 01462 818620) while there is a choice of dentists, both just half a mile away at Shefford Dental Clinic (Sat Nav SG17 5FS, call 01462 648465) or Shefford Dental Practice (Sat Nav SG17 5DG, call 01462 814020).

Dining

From fine dining to family pizza fun, Shefford has something for every taste, budget and occasion. Sample the exotic flavours of Dalchini Spice, Bangkok Lounge, Shefford Tandoori or Clifton Cuisine. Try the gastro pub experience at The Black Horse, Kite at The Red Hart, The Golden Lion or The Cornerstone. And don’t miss the Caribbean flavours of Rose Buds café or the Mediterranean style of The Loft.

Education

For a small town, Shefford boasts an excellent choice of schools all within a mile and a half, making them within walking distance of your new home and cutting the costs and congestion of the school run.
Younger pupils can choose between the Ofsted ‘good’ rated Shefford Lower School or travel a little further for the ‘outstanding’ rated Campton Lower School. The town operates a three-tier system, with Robert Bloomfield Academy middle school, which is also rated ‘outstanding’, providing the stepping stone to Samuel Whitbread Academy high school and 6th form, which is rated ‘good’.
Acorn Pre-School and The Woodlands Pre-School in the town provide a first class start for the very youngest members of your family.

Leisure

The local Bedfordshire countryside has been admired for generations, leading to the creation of some fascinating country parks and stately homes that are well worth a visit. Check out Wrest Park, Woburn Abbey, Rowen Warren or the extensive Barton Hills National Nature Reserve. Hoo Hill Maze puts some family fun into your free time, with a warm welcome ahead of your puzzle solving challenge.
Golfers will enjoy a great value round at RAF Henlow Golf Club, which is open to all despite being part of the airbase, while Beadlow Manor Golf Club provides its own unique tests. For other sports, try Pendleton Sports Centre in nearby Stotfold. Bedford, Luton and Stevenage all offer a wide range of evening entertainment including cinemas and theatres.

Shopping

The local high street has a number of shops and stores which will cover all your essentials. For a more extensive shopping trip, the options are endless, with so many towns and cities within easy reach. Head for the Garden Square Shopping centre in Letchworth, the Olde Watermill Shopping Village in Barton-le-Clay, or the huge choice in Luton, including the Quadrant, The Mall and Bedford Square. Milton Keynes has even more to offer with the Intu and Xscape shopping centres plus Centre MK.
For convenient, out of town shopping, head for the A1 Retail Park, to the north, where you’ll find a host of home and fashion names, including Next, M&S, TK Max and Laura Ashley.
For the ultimate blow out, the flagship stores of Oxford Street are less than an hour away by train, offering enough retail therapy to satisfy even the most ardent shopaholic.
