About us

At Bidwells we like to think we are a bit different from other property consultants. We don’t claim to do everything for everyone. But we do offer our clients unparalleled knowledge and access to the markets we serve – and these are some of the most interesting markets with the highest growth potential in the UK.

Much of our work is concentrated in the ‘Golden Triangle’ encompassed by Oxford, Cambridge and London. Key activity in this area is focused on the science & technology and education sectors. We also manage thousands of square miles of the UK’s countryside and coastline where we are helping clients to take advantage of opportunities in the high-performing areas of forestry, renewables, and agriculture.
