Fine old priory in Bedfordshire with priest hole

Old Priory House is believed to date back to the early 1600s. As a result there are many charming period features inside the property including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, leaded light windows and timber flooring. The property has been well maintained and updated over the years and provides good accommodation over three floors.

The ground floor has three reception rooms as well as a good conservatory with underfloor heating, currently used as a breakfast room and accessed from the kitchen. The first floor is accessible from two staircases to the galleried landing which provides an additional sitting room and access to the priest hole. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and there are four remaining bedrooms served by two bathrooms – there are a further two loft rooms on the second floor.
