Take a look around Priory Waterside & Marina


A natural escape hidden in Bedfordshire

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. You may be surprised to discover then, that the marina is just two miles from the bustling town centre of Bedford and only 40 minutes by train from London. With everything you need for waterside life either on site or nearby, you can relax and enjoy this idyllic and secure location with a residential or leisure mooring, or as a visitor.

Things to do in Bedfordshire and nearby

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. Bedfordshire is also lucky enough to have several excellent golf courses. While the golfers play, the non-golfers can spend the day at the magnificent Woburn Abbey and Gardens or Woburn Safari Park, which are less than half an hour’s drive.
