Leestone Park, Leighton Buzzard
About the Development
Perfectly placed in Leighton Buzzard and within easy reach of Milton Keynes, Leestone Park is an important phase in the re-development of the area’s former quarries, which will provide much needed family housing. We will be building a range of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes from our Heritage Collection
In due course, the development will have its own lower school, local centre and much more, but even now you can count on excellent schools within easy reach, plus all the facilities of Leighton Buzzard just a mile and a half away.
Remember, you only need 5% deposit with Help to Buy.

DiningA wide range of cuisine is available in Leighton Buzzard, from Mama Rosa’s and Martini Italian to Shan Shui Cottage Chinese & Mevan, a Mediterranean restaurant. If you prefer something more homely then you will also find some excellent local pubs/restaurants providing delicious food, including The Golden Bell, The Black Lion & The Anchor
EducationWhen the full development is complete, it will have its own dedicated primary school, but until then, younger children can choose between Dovery Down Lower School, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, along with Heathwood Lower School and Gilbert Inglefield Academy, both rated ‘good’.
Often, older children have to travel to senior school, but at Leestone Park you’ll find the ‘good’ rated Vandyke Upper School and Community College right on your doorstep. Cedars Upper School, across town, offers an alternative, also rated ‘good’.
LeisureThere is plenty to keep you and your family occupied in and around Leighton Buzzard, from sports to safaris. Tiddenfoot Leisure Centre offers a great range of activities, and Leighton Buzzard Golf Course is also close to the development. For sport with a difference, try the Snozone at Xscape Milton Keynes.
Leighton Buzzard has its own theatre, as well as one of the oldest and longest narrow gauge railways, originally built to serve the quarries where we are now building. You’ll also find cinemas in both Milton Keynes and Luton.
For a great family day out, head for Woburn Abbey Safari Park or Whipsnade Zoo, or just take a stroll around Stockgrove or Rushmere Country Parks.
ShoppingLeighton Buzzard is home to the Waterbourne Walk Shopping Centre, and also has a good selection of big names and local independents along the main High Street. There is a local market in the town every Tuesday and Saturday.
