Shortstown: A picturesque village on the outskirts of Bedford

Our new houses for sale in Bedford are located in the stunning countryside village of Shortstown, a village with a significant presence in recent British history: In 1917 Shortstown was established with the creation of the Airshop Works requiring nearby housing for the workforce.

With local amenities including a post office and shop all within walking distance, and a variety of Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ schools in the nearby area, it is the perfect location for families.
