For most of our Extra Care Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, Central Bedfordshire Council, who can be contacted on 0300 300 8302.
This development has 27 one and two bed apartments situated centrally within a quiet residential area. Lavender Court is supported by a network of informal friends. Organised activities include craft groups, discussion groups, and afternoon tea.
You won’t have to worry about buildings and grounds maintenance or repairs as an on-site manager looks after these points, as well as helping you to access further help and support if you need it.
Ampthill is a small historic market town in Bedfordshire. The town has several lively pubs, a wide variety of restaurants, a supermarket and a selection of small independent specialist shops. A regular market has taken place on Thursdays for centuries.
Art and culture
Ampthill Park was designed by Capability Brown and Katherine of Aragon is said to have been imprisoned there, whilst awaiting her fate. Westminster Pond, a great place for fishing and jogging, is located on the outskirts of Ampthill. The Greensand Ridge Walk is Bedfordshire’s premier long distance footpath. The route has been split into five sections to enable you to walk it in stages or as a whole.
Five miles away is Wrest Park owned by English Heritage with Britain's largest and most important 'secret gardens'. It has miles of reinstated historic pathways which lead to garden buildings, a pavilion and statues.
