Cranfield is a quaint village in north-west Bedfordshire bounded by woodland. Dating back to Saxon times, the village is built on a hill, meaning residents can enjoy beautiful views of surrounding farmland.Lying between Bedford (approximately 10 miles) to the east and Milton Keynes (approximately 7 miles) to the west, it's just off the M1 motorway between junctions 13 and 14, making it perfect for commuters.

The village benefits from a number of local stores including three pubs, a hairdresser, a number of take-away restaurants, and two small supermarkets. For a greater range of shopping facilities, Milton Keynes and Bedford are just a short drive away and offer all the major high street stores along with restaurants, theatres, cinemas and nightlife. As well as shops, ‘Xscape' in Milton Keynes boasts the country's biggest indoor snow slopes, rock climbing walls, bowling and a gym.

Cranfield Village Hall offers a number of weekly events, including fitness and dance classes, a bowls club, art classes, and tea dances. Local places of interest include Marston Thrift, which is part of the Marston Vale Community Forest, a popular nature reserve. A little further away is Woburn Abbey and Safari Park, and the recently opened Centre Parcs, also in Woburn.

Well-respected schooling for all ages

Cranfield is probably most famous for its RAF connections and airfield, which later became Cranfield Institute of Technology but is now known as Cranfield University. Along with the university, there are two well-respected schools in the village, the Lower School and Holywell Middle School. Older children can travel approximately 4 miles by bus to Wootton Upper School.

With its sought-after location, superb selection of amenities, excellent local schools and speedy road links, Hartwell Manor is a great place to live with a fantastic choice of spacious homes…

About Developer

Charles Church - The Name on the Finest Homes

When Charles and Susanna Church laid the foundations of their first home in 1965, they were doing more than building a desirable residence. They were turning their vision of the perfect home into a benchmark for quality and a legacy for future generations to appreciate.

In the intervening years, Charles Church has grown to establish itself as one of the countrys foremost housebuilding brands whilst maintaining its unrivalled reputation for the design and quality of the homes it builds.

Over four decades later, their principles remain the cornerstone of every home we build. Charles Churchs philosophy of combining aesthetically pleasing designs with traditional building techniques is as relevant today as it was then, and the company prides itself on the sympathetic way in which its homes are designed to harmonise with their surroundings. Wherever possible, many period or regional features are incorporated, including its trademark brick and knapped flint combination, decorative tile hanging and the use of natural stone.

Perhaps best known for its traditional designs, Charles Church has not remained rooted in the past, however, and has evolved to ensure that it continues to meet and exceed the demands of a new generation of homeowners. That is why you will now find an impressive array of Charles Church homes to suit all lifestyles in both rural and city centre locations. Not only does the scope of its developments now encompass traditional design reflecting the prevailing local architecture, but also embraces contemporary and exciting architectural styles and breathes new life into redundant historic and commercial buildings through their sensitive conversion and restoration.

What remains the same, however, is the companys emphasis on exacting standards and attention to detail at every stage of the construction process, enabling it to achieve in its homes a totally unmistakable quality and sense of style. The results of this unique combination of principles have been rewarded with numerous prestigious consumer and industry awards over the years.

The ultimate winner however, is the buyer of a Charles Church home.
