'Westoning Manor

Westoning Manor is a Grade II listed building set in parkland and dating back to 1842.

The village of Westoning is located between Ampthill & Toddington within 2.5 miles of Junction 12 of the M1 Motorway. The nearby village of Harlington has a Thameslink mainline rail link as has Flitwick, 2 miles to the North.

The conversion of the Manor has formed 6 individual apartments containing many original features.

The replacement of the old stables and agricultural buildings has led to the construction of 8 new 3 bedroom homes which have been designed to architecturally complement the Manor House.'
