Hertfordshire isn’t just a characterless commuter belt. Charming villages, rolling fields and towns packed with cool restaurants and independents are very much the order of the day here. From the lively vibes of historical St Albans and happening Hitchin to properly rural village life, there’s something for every savvy commuter in this county.
Picturesque rural charm a hop and a skip from bustling Hertford, Hertingfordbury also boasts a great pub, fab schools a village community.
Nestled in-between St Albans and Elstree, the rural village of Radlett packs a big punch.
It's buzzy, it's local, it's surrounded by nature...and it's also on the tube! Rickmansworth is a commuter's dream.
There's far more to this under-the-radar market town than a museum and a famous performing arts school. Find a high street packed with indies, a family-friendly feel and direct access to the Chilterns.
If it's a traditional village vibe you're after - look no further than stupidly picturesque Much Hadham, one of Hertfordshire's real beauties.
This lovely town is built for those who enjoy the finer things in life. The connections to London are stratospherically fast, and it's packed with great pubs, restaurants and independent shops. Oh, and there's a Space NK. Sold?
I'm just going to come out and and say it - I am in love with Hitchin. This super convenient commuter town has everything you could possibly want, and more.
Not only is St Albans one of the country's most beautiful small cities, it's also bursting with great pubs, restaurants, independent shops, and a good dose of community spirit. That might also be why a pad here can cost you.
