New Cardington Fields enjoys a well-connected location just 3.5 miles from the centre of Bedford, and closer still to the celebrated town of Cardington; an area that will forever have a place in the history books as it once housed the world's longest aircraft Airlander 10.

Film and history enthusiasts will delight in a visit to the monumental Cardington Studios, one of the largest indoor spaces in Europe and the former site of the world-famous Cardington Hangers.

Slightly further afield in Bedford, the Shuttleworth Collection is an aeronautical and automotive museum housed in the old Warden Aerodrome.

It also has touring exhibitions throughout the year.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, the nearby Priory Country Park boasts 360 acres of parkland, comprising lakes, meadows, and vast woodland, all nestled on a bend of the River Ouse.

Your monthly repayments

Repayment mortgage
What's this?
If you opt for a repayment mortgage, you will need to make monthly payments to your mortgage lender, which consist of a portion of the amount you originally borrowed (sometimes called the ‘capital balance’), as well as any interested that has been incurred on your loan.
Interest only mortgage
What's this?
Choosing an interest-only mortgage means that you will only need to make monthly payments towards the interest on the amount you originally borrowed. With this type of loan, you don’t need to repay any of the capital balance (the amount you borrowed to buy your home), for the duration of the interest only period.
