Fairfield Park is very peaceful and tranquil place to be. The gardens and walkways are neatly manicured, play grounds well kept, paths and walkways clean and tidy. The roads have small but effective speed measures which means traffic flows at a more gentle pace. Park living is one of a respectful nature instead of big brother watching. The lack of available properties available on the park is testament to the people who have moved onto the park since its inception and who don't want to move away.

There is a lower school on the park which has been rated as outstanding along with many nearby middle and upper schools of Etonbury Academy and the renowned Samuel Whitbread Community College.

Fairfield Park is centrally located to all major link roads A1, link roads to the M1 into London and Cambridge as well as Bedford and Milton Keynes. Fast train links into London Kings Cross via Letchworth are approximately 35-40mins.

On the park itself there is a Tesco's convenience store, Bannatyne's Gym and new Spa, The new Orchard Restaurant, dry cleaners and Eden hair salon along with Fairfield Park Cricket & Bowls Club. There are many secure play parks for children along with speed restricted roads for family safety.

Leasehold: 991 years remaining
