Town Clock

Town Clock It's a nice place to sit and take in the sites or to sit at one of the tables and eat lunch.

Bedford is a quaint turn of the century town with a gorgeous background of the Peaks of Otter. Home of the " Bedford Boys" and the National D-Day Memorial, you will need a few days to enjoy the step back in time of this historic town. There is shopping at antique stores to find some rare and regional keepsakes and... More

Electronic cigarettes, is the new way to kick the habit... More

The coffee shop was closed... it kind of had a solemn feel to it. There was a really nice art studio off of Depot St... This town has obviously seen better days... just needs... More

Great place to just walk around with family and friends. Being in the mountain region gives me a different feel anyways, being in Bedford and the Peaks of Otter area make it special for me always.
