You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Amazing service from genuinely friendly staff and dentists, highly recommend! I was incredibly nervous about visiting the dentist as it's been a long time since my last visit but the staff really put me at ease from my first call right through to completing treatment. I'm so happy with my new smile, it's such a confidence boost to not be embarrassed by my teeth! Thank you!

I feel at home , great reception and David is a very good dentist, very calm . Took my nan there and David is sorting her teeth for her now . I recommend 100% , very busy but tried to fit my nan in, to get sorted as soon as possible well done and thanks

BMI The Manor Hospital

Church End, Biddenham, Bedford MK40 4AW, UK – 01234 364252

I was very nervous about my initial visit but everyone made me feel welcome. I had to go in for a day surgery following this and all the staff were amazing. They made me feel very comfortable and were very thorough and supportive. My consultant Dr Mahran was fantastic and very professional. He made what I thought would be a stressful day feel much easier and I felt safe in his care and that of the health care staff.

The village setting & beautifully kept grounds & surroundings make this BMI hospital unique & welcoming. You're made to feel welcomed & cared about as a patient & I attend frequently as an NHS patient though it is a predominantly private health care hospital with clinics, day cases & longer term stays. The staff are professional from the admitting staff to the nurses & the highly qualified Consultants. The rooms are clean & each has a lovely view of the gardens & equipped with en-suite bathroom. A daily newspaper is always supplied plus a TV & wi-fi is available as required. Theatres & recovery are high spec, the theatre staff very caring & friendly as are the nurses in recovery. A very good menu of meals & light bites, drinks, desserts etc caters to all dietery requirements & dishes are fairly priced. Tea, coffee & soft drinks are plentiful & the catering staff very efficient & speedy! I can't fault BMI The Manor Hospital, Biddenham & whether your treatment is private or through NHS funding it has never been a hospital I want to get discharged from in a hurry. I always feel relaxed, respected, listened to & leave confident with my procedure & recovery. Each staff member excels at their work & I've never witnessed anyone dissatisfied, grumpy or too rushed off their feet to care. This makes for calm patients & happier staff & Dr's. Set in a gorgeous village it is quiet & feels almost like a serene getaway. Highly recommended for health clinics & medical/surgical procedures.

Stagsden Christmas Trees

West End Farm Cottages, W End Rd, Stagsden, Bedford MK43 8SZ, UK – 01234 391924

Great place for picking out your Christmas tree. A lovely shop with some beautiful items. Tree lasted from November 28 right through to February. Its been cut but now in the garden still looks good (March). Need long sleeves and tops as there's a few thorns in the tree field.

We won't go anywhere else for our Christmas tree. It's become an annual tradition to try and squeeze the biggest tree we can into our tiny car and then celebrate the success (ish) by looking around the beautiful selection of decorations in the shop. Always an absolute pleasure.


100 Stagsden Rd, Bromham, Bedford MK43 8PU, UK – 01234 824040

Good range of food and services, including high quality prepared meals, Subway, deli, MyHermes dropoff. Only 4* because fresh veg is not always as fresh as it might be.

It's a convenience store so a bit dearer than your average supermarket but that's to be expected. I use it regularly - 3-4 times a week - always clean and welcoming with a fair selection of produce.


Anglia Way, Bedford MK40 4GH, UK

Has very good stock and mostly has what I need and for its size it's good. Helpful staff however sometimes items are replaced with something else and can be very annoying.

Very good

The Legstraps

20 Keeley Ln, Wootton, Bedford MK43 9HR, UK – 01234 854112

We came here after our indoor skydiving experience in Twinwoods. We were the first to arrive and were given what think were the best table in the house. The decor of the place was lovely, with music which improved the ambiance without being intrusive. I ordered the seafood stew and my husband had then braised beef and we were both very impressed with the portions and the taste. For dessert I had the raw coconut chocolate tarte and my husband had the brownie. Both were adequate but nothing special and in hindsight we would have got starters instead. The staff were friendly but my one complaint would be that they were not very attentive. Once more people came in we were left looking at the dessert menu for 25 minutes, and the waitress only came over once my husband gave up and went to get someone. This is not a huge complaint though as the food was tasty and the pub/restaurant a lovely place.

Friendly staff and beautiful restaurant food. Service is quick and the decor is nice. There's a good atmosphere inside the pub and in the pub garden at the back. I'd highly recommend this place.

I loved spending my work experience at this school. The teachers are so kind to the children. The children are so polite and friendly. It was a truly amazing experience to see the children develop more and more each day. They are very happy children and they love spending time with eachother and their teachers. All the children seem to get along with eachother. This school also has the CDC (Childrens' Development Centre) attached to it wich is great for anyone who has a child/ children with disabilities. It would be my pleasure to help out at this school again.
