In this paper infinite families of linear binary nested completely regular codes are constructed. They have covering radius $\rho$ equal to $3$ or $4,$ and are $1/2^i$th parts, for $i\in\{1,\ldots,u\}$ of binary (respectively, extended binary) Hamming codes of length $n=2^m-1$ (respectively, $2^m$), where $m=2u$. In the usual way, i.e., as coset graphs, infinite families of embedded distance-regular coset graphs of diameter $D$ equal to $3$ or $4$ are constructed. This gives antipodal covers of some distance-regular and distance-transitive graphs. In some cases, the constructed codes are also completely transitive and the corresponding coset graphs are distance-transitive.
