Overview
More
Shortmead is an elegant manor house, with its origins in the 16th century and set in twenty four acres of grounds. Located in Bedfordshire, it is Biggleswade’s best kept secrets. In a tranquil setting with open vistas and positioned on the outskirts of the town, yet the house is conveniently located just off the A1 motorway and close to a mainline railway station.
