Live the Houghton Conquest life


A pleasant village in Bedfordshire which offers a relaxed pace of life, buying a new home in Houghton Conquest could prove inspired. Especially if you get a great deal on your new house by taking up an arrangement like our Part Exchange scheme. With this, we could act as your guaranteed buyer if you have another home to sell. This means you could save thousands on estate agent fees, while reducing your stress levels and the time it takes to sell your home. 

Things to see and do in Houghton Conquest

With a selection of local pubs, shops and other amenities, the village is a pleasant place to spend time. The same goes for Houghton House just to the south, a ruined mansion which offers great views across the local countryside. Likewise Stewartby Lake, which is perfect for walks and also has a water sports club if you want to try your hand at activities such as sailing. 

Back on dry land - for the most part, at least - there’s a selection of local golf clubs you could join, including the Millbrook Golf Club. Cut-Throat Meadow is a lot nicer than it sounds, while Cooper’s Hill is ideal for dog walks. Maulden Wood is great for walking too, while the beautiful Barton Hills are only a 15-minute drive away. 


There’s only one school in the village at present, Houghton Conquest Lower School on the High Street. It caters for children aged between two and nine, and is rated as good by Ofsted. Neighbouring Wilstead and Wixams also have good primaries, while local secondaries include Daubeney Academy and Redborne Upper School and Community College. They are both classed as good too. 

Houghton Conquest transport links

Houghton Conquest is close to the A6 which runs north to south between Bedford and Luton. You can drive to the former in around 15 minutes, while it’s another five minutes to the latter. The nearest train station is a couple of miles away in Stewartby, with services to London taking approximately an hour and a half. It’s usually quicker to drive or catch a bus to Bedford and get a train from there to the capital though.
