Top class nursing care in a convenient town setting

The Willows is situated just a mile from Bedford town centre and train station and conveniently placed for the neighbouring towns of St Neots, Sandy, Rushden, Wootton and Biggleswade.

This beautifully furnished Victorian residence is in a pleasant area of Bedford; its relaxed, family feel makes it ideal for high quality nursing, residential, dementia and respite care.

The tasteful décor is in keeping with a period property which is full of character with high ceilings throughout and traditional design features.

Residents love the spacious and comfortable communal areas and bedrooms which have individual character.

The Willows, a popular home trusted by the community, hosts a number of events during the year which are as popular with local people as residents.
