A guide to...Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire is a beautiful part of the UK, with popular towns, quiet countryside and lots to explore and enjoy. For families thinking about schooling, Hertfordshire is a great area to consider, as there is a great selection of state, secondary and independent schools to pick from.

Although Hertfordshire is so close to London, there is an abundance of outdoor activities and countryside to explore. Or if you are more of a townie Hertfordshire is home to some buzzing highstreets lined with chic shops, restaurants and bars.

The fantastic transport links and short journey times, make Hertfordshire the ideal location for a commuter looking to live in the Countryside. Luton airport is also on the doorstep, so if you have to travel or just like to go on regular trips abroad, this really could be the ideal location for you.

A small town, centred around a large green, with its tree lined high street full of independent restaurants, bars and shops, Harpenden has all the benefits of a thriving town, whilst still feeling like a village.
