Live the Blunham life
If you’re looking to call this peaceful corner of Bedfordshire home, but still stay well within reach of the area’s cultural hubs, the pleasant village of Blunham could be for you. What’s more, you could make use of the Government’s Help to Buy East of England scheme, which is available on properties valued up to £407,400 in the local area.
Things to see and do in Blunham
Blunham is surrounded by attractive countryside which provides ample opportunities for walking, running and bike rides, while the playing fields on the edge of the village are perfect for a stroll with the dog. Head over to Bedford River Valley Park for a longer walk through the local landscapes, continuing to Priory Country Park which handily leads you towards the centre of Bedford.
St Neots is just north of Blunham and home to a local museum, which isn’t far from the 127-hectare Little Paxton Pits. The Shuttleworth Collection is an absolute must for aviation enthusiasts, while the Riverside Miniature Railway is great for little ones. Kids will also love the Ride Leisure water park, which can prove just as much fun for adult visitors too.
When it’s time for your children to turn their attention to the classroom, they can attend the village’s primary school, John Donne CofE. Located on the High Street, it’s rated as good by Ofsted. The same goes for Sandy Secondary School, where local girls and boys can study from the age of 11 to 18.
Blunham transport links
Blunham is close to the A1, which means it has easy access to a host of places in the North and the South. You can use this road, for example, to drive down to London in little more than an hour in good traffic. Bedford is much closer and only around 15 minutes away in the car, while it’s double that to Luton, Cambridge and Milton Keynes. The nearest train station to the village is a few miles away in Sandy, with services to several London stations taking less than 50 minutes.
The Blunham property scene
