Coming soon to Bedford is St Bedes; a brand new development providing independent retirement living with care.

On Wednesday 28th March Orbit Homes will be holding an information day to allow interested buyers to find out more about this brand new development of luxury apartments designed specifically for the over 55’s.

St Bede’s, located on the Bromham Road, in Bedford, will feature 104, one and two-bedroom apartments along with extensive communal facilities.

St Bede’s offers a completely different lifestyle when compared with conventional retirement schemes; the emphasis is very much on independent living in your own spacious apartment yet within a real community of like-minded people.

Each apartment comes with a high specification including a well-equipped kitchen, the majority of apartments also include an external balcony or terrace with space for a table, chairs and plants too.

St Bede’s will offer an exceptional range of communal facilities for residents including a restaurant, café bar, hair salon, library and IT suite, all set within beautifully landscaped gardens. Furthermore, homes will be available to purchase on a Shared Ownership basis making retirement living affordable for all.

“We would advise anyone who may be interested in purchasing a home at St Bede’s to come along to our information day on 28th March” Said Lorraine Mansfield, Business Development Manager at Orbit Heart of England.

“We will be running two seminars, one at 11am and one at 2pm to explain more about the development, there’s no need to book an appointment, just pop in and see us!”
