An oasis of peace and tranquillity, Priory Waterside & Marina is tucked away on the banks of the River Great Ouse, within the 250-acre Priory Country Park.

Priory Waterside & Marina is surrounded by the many acres of the peaceful and wildlife-rich Priory Park, where you can walk, cycle, picnic and play. Also nearby is the RSPB nature reserve, The Lodge at Sandy. When shopping and nightlife beckon, take the short walk into Bedford, with its impressive range of shops, museums, theatres, bars and restaurant, or catch the direct train to London.

John and Rosemary Kitchiner - Priory Residents
"Living at Priory marina is such an idyllic way of life. One can see the changing of seasons even though we are close to Bedford town. On days the townsfolk come in to visit the lake and the park right next door to us and to see the families and young people enjoying these lovely surroundings is so uplifting".
