Pocket Guide: Shuttleworth Collection Shuttleworth Collection Hotels

The landlocked county of Bedfordshire is home to some of the United Kingdom's most spectacular countryside. The low-lying land stretches on for miles, punctuated by the occasional vibrant town. This romantic location is blessed with a rich and diverse history. One of Bedfordshire's most enchanting historical attractions is the Shuttleworth Collection, housed at the Shuttleworth estate at Old Warden. Not far from Bedford, visitors to the collection have the pick of some of the finest guesthouses and hotels in Bedfordshire.

The Collection

The Shuttleworth Collection is an aeronautical and automotive museum in Old Warden. On display is a collection of vintage aircraft and vehicles originally collected by the aviator Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth, from 1928 onwards. The Shuttleworth Collection was first opened to the public in 1963.

The diverse and fascinating collection ranges from 19th century gliders to Edwardian aircraft with their original engines. There are also a number of impressive motorcars and bikes in the collection.

The House and Garden

The Shuttleworth Collection is housed at the family estate in Old Warden, which also comprises a spectacular country home and Swiss garden. The Victorian mansion is not only impressive architecturally - it also continues to serve as an agricultural centre, a nod to another of the family's passions.

The house also features a tea room and is available to hire for private events. The gorgeous garden and ample space make the property ideal for decadent and memorable weddings.

Hotels near the Shuttleworth Collection

The Shuttleworth Collection is not far away from the county town of Bedford, which means visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation. From luxury spa hotels to intimate B&Bs, just about everything is within easy reach.

Champney's Henlow is a four star hotel housed within a truly magnificent Georgian property. The hotel is ideal for those seeking a relaxing break, thanks to its indoor pool and full range of spa treatments.

Visitors in search of a traditional and quintessentially English inn can turn to the Knife and Cleaver, situated in the rural village of Houghton Conquest. With its own restaurant attached, this is a particularly good choice for food-lovers.
