Mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086 as a small farming community, the town of Bedworth lies five miles north of Coventry and three miles south of Nuneaton.
Nowadays Bedworth is an attractive, vibrant and growing market town which is home to a population of around 42,000. The relatively recent population growth in the area is mainly due to its convenience for the motorway network and its proximity to the cities of Coventry, Birmingham and Leicester where many of its population work and shop.
The town’s thriving community spirit and good leisure facilities make it a very family orientated area supported by a plentiful supply of post war semi and detached family homes. The town has some Victorian terracing and semi-detached housing as well as its famous complex of stunning Almshouses, which were built in 1840 and continue to attract a steady trail of tourists.
As the town has started to grow the area’s housing stock is becoming more varied with a number of new city-living-style apartment developments taking shape. All in all Bedworth’s great communications links, family homes and facilities make it an attractive place to live for anyone looking to escape the city at the end of a busy day.
