Pocket Guide: Biggleswade Swiss Garden Hotels

Bedfordshire is a county best known for its delightful stretches of stunning natural countryside. This beautiful, rural county attracts a large number of visitors each year from all around the world. The handful of charming and busy towns around the county play host to some fascinating attractions, completing the package. The Swiss Garden at Shuttleworth is one of the most enchanting attractions in the county. There also plenty of exquisite hotels in the surrounding area, making it a welcome addition to visitors' itineraries.

A Unique Outdoor Space

While many visitors to Bedfordshire come to the county for the untouched countryside, the Swiss Garden at Shuttleworth is an equally magical outdoor sight, crafted carefully by man.

The Swiss Garden was put together by the eccentric and wealthy Lord Ongley between the years 1824 and 1832. At great expense, he created a singular landscape which mirrored the topography of Switzerland to a greater degree of accuracy than you'd think imaginable in a county just a few miles from the centre of London! To complete the eccentric project, Ongley used to host large parties with Swiss themes. Reportedly, his servants were required to dress up in Swiss costumes for the duration of the parties.

Also at Shuttleworth

The Shuttleworth estate comprises plenty more than just the Swiss Garden. The site also features a stunning Victorian mansion and the impressive Shuttleworth Collection. The Shuttleworth Collection houses a huge number of vintage aircraft, motorcars and bikes collected by an enthusiastic and wealthy aviator in the 1920s. The collection has been open to the public since 1963.

Hotels near the Swiss Garden

Shuttleworth and the Swiss Garden are located in Old Warden, a short distance south-east of the county town of Bedford. Its location means visitors can choose from some of the best hotels in Bedfordshire.

Staying in central Bedford is incredibly convenient, thanks to its excellent transport links. The Park Inn by Radisson offers a central location and affordable prices. From here, it couldn't be easier to explore the countryside of Bedfordshire, as well as the town's many exciting attractions.

Those looking for a rural retreat which is ripe for relaxation can head to Champneys Henlow, which is equipped with a first-rate spa and plenty of luxurious accommodation.
