Your Local Ampthill Branch...

Centrally situated on Bedford Street immediately next to the entrance to Waitrose™ supermarket our Ampthill branch is the largest double fronted premise of all agents within the area made up of a team of seven experienced agents under the management of well respected Ben Denness who has in excess of 15 years as a local agent.

The popularity of Ampthill remains stronger than ever with its excellent schooling, pretty Georgian Town centre playing host to a vast array of businesses and the abundance of surrounding parkland which extends across the beautiful greensand ridge. Steeped in History with references dating back as far as 1086 Ampthill is well known for its heritage with architectural delights from St Andres Church, thatched cottages, pretty Georgian Town houses, ex Duke of Bedford cottages all contributing to the delightful street scene as you make your way through the town. It would be unjust to visit the town and not take in the ruins of Houghton House on the fringe as you exit on Bedford Road, a former house built by the Countess of Pembroke in 1621.

Surrounding Ampthill are numerous popular villages, each with their own historical identity that attracts buyers from far and wide. The Ampthill branch links excellently with our neighbouring branches in Bedford, Flitwick & Barton le Clay by covering Maulden, Clophill, Cranfield, Houghton Conquest, Lidlington, Marston Moretaine, Stewartby, Lower & Upper Shelton, Silsoe, Haynes, Gravenhurst, Shefford & Meppershall.

Mid Bedfordshire attracts buyers & tenants from the larger neighbouring Towns and further afield including London due to its close proximity to London Luton Airport, Thames link rail line connecting us directly into London St Pancras International station and the M1 junctions 12 & 13. Ampthill has a good range of bars, restaurants, coffee and tea shops and with excellent sporting facilities including cricket, rugby, football, swimming, lawn bowls and smaller clubs for specialist subjects such as karate & yoga combined with Country walks and places to visit there is a genuine opportunity to enjoy living in Mid Bedfordshire from virtually any lifestyle perspective.  To further add a sense of quality, visitors may like to note that Centre Parcs ‘Woburn Forest’ is situated on the outskirts of Ampthill, nr Millbrook, a location selected for its outstanding natural beauty.  

As we have ten branches covering Beds & Bucks digitally linked in real time when you visit any branch you can acquire property details and information for anywhere that appeals to you. 

We are Beds & Bucks largest award winning Independent agent who goes the extra mile.

Ben Denness

Ben Denness Owner

Having worked within the industry for in excess of 18 years I understand that being an estate agent is about far more than just negotiating the right deal, it’s about building trust and long lasting relationships with clients. Customer service is at the forefront of our business and with this firmly in mind it is vitally important that all of my clients are confident they are dealing with a straight forward, honest individual who can give them informed and knowledgeable advice on all aspects of the house moving process.

Peter Taylor

Peter Taylor Owner

I have been in the business for around 29 years originally working from Luton, then moving onto Dunstable before moving out into the Mid & South Bedfordshire villages. I have been based with the team in Ampthill since 2009 and live in a local village nearby. I have a wealth of experience in the industry and am involved with all aspects of the business to include the valuing and sale & letting of residential property. I also am responsible for dealing with offers and agreeing sales with our sellers and buyers, I look after all of the sales that the branch agree and I keep in touch with our clients and the other parties when progressing the sale through to satisfactory legal completion. I have 2 children and spend a good amount of time together when I am taking a break from my busy schedule. I also enjoy cycling to keep fit and spend plenty of time out walking our family dog.

Paul Savage

Paul Savage Residential Sales

I have had the pleasure for working for Urban and Rural in Mid Bedfordshire for the past 13 years where my main focus has been delivering an old fashioned customer service approach in everything I am involved with. I take great pride and personal satisfaction in helping clients achieve their plans when purchasing or renting a new home. I feel that the process of moving home can be very understated and having a good estate agent supporting you can be in itself very rewarding. I also like to extend this support to my own colleagues as we are focused on supporting one another to help deliver the optimum service to promote the brand. Away from property I'm very fortunate to be a part time house dad, I truly believe there is no better vocation with the support of my amazing wife. When I do find do find time to be away from it all I have a passion for music and photography both reflect my personality extremely well.
