Development focus: Lancaster Gate

Nestled in the Bedfordshire countryside in the village of Sutton, Lancaster Gate is the perfect place for people looking for a balance of peace and quiet, while retaining easy access to local amenities and bigger towns and cities.

The collection of three – and four-bedroom homes also comprises a selection of our custom builds, giving our customers more choice on the layout of their home.

The option is available on our three-bed detached Cardinham homes, so whether you’re looking for an open plan ground floor living space, or you’d like to add a walk-in wardrobe to your master bedroom, the choice is yours. You can read more about them in our custom builds blog.

All homes at Lancaster Gate are built to high specifications and come complete with electric vehicle charging points and solar panels as standard.

The surrounding area

While Sutton is picturesque and serene, there is a wealth of things to do in the local area.

There are a variety of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities nearby in the neighbouring towns of Sandy, Biggleswade and Potton.

Sandy station has great transport links to Cambridge and London, making it the ideal location for people willing to commute for work while enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside.

The area is perfect for families, with several primary and secondary schools located within close proximity. Sutton’s only school – Sutton V.A. Lower School – is rated “Good” by Ofsted and for those who are willing to travel a little bit further, Bedford has a comprehensive range of public and independent schools just a 35-minute drive away.

Those looking to make the most of the scenery on offer can enjoy a round of golf at the village’s John O’Gaunt Golf Club, boasting two 18-hole courses set across over 300 acres of tree-lined parkland.

Think local

One of the benefits of living in a village like Sutton is having multiple local businesses on your doorstep. And the community is incredibly proud of its local independents.

The village is home to the quaint John O’Gaunt Inn – its only pub – whose menu packs a flavourful punch. Included in the 2023 Michelin Guide, it offers popular pies of the day and a scrumptious Sunday roast with all the trimmings.

If you’re looking for freshly baked bread, pastries or cakes, Lucy Jane’s Bakery in Potton has an extensive lunch menu which includes a selection of sandwiches and hot food, perfect to take away and enjoy in your new home.

For meat and dairy produce, Franklins of Thorncote is a butcher, farm shop and dairy café in Sandy, just a 17-minute drive away from Lancaster Gate.

For gift ideas, Saxon Gate Flowers is a six-minute drive away in Biggleswade and is round the corner from DRINK Biggleswade – a craft beer tasting room and bottle shop offering deliveries to the local area.
