Bedford Cottage, built in the 1820s, is one of the trio of buildings on the east side of Bedford Place just south of the junction with Carlton Crescent. High Street ironmonger Edward Toomer purchased the land in the area in 1824. This purchase included Wilton Cottage (later Wilton Lodge) and Bedford Cottage which had then just been built for John Curtis. The architect of the two buildings may have been Toomer’s son, Samuel.
