The local area guide to living in Hertfordshire

A county of many faces, Hertfordshire's southern border is nestled up to Greater London, and is consequently home to thousands of commuters. A busier and more modernised area of the county, it is here that some of the most expensive properties in the UK can be located, with property prices in areas such as Rickmansworth soaring to figures above 1 million pounds.

Despite being directly outside London, the North and the East of Hertfordshire are a million miles from the city hustle and generally busy feel of the capital. The picture perfect villages and countryside views provide a beautiful contrast to the neighbouring city of London.

With the picturesque scenery, natural resorts and endless things to do in and around the area, it's no wonder so many choose to settle down here. On top of this, it should come as little to no surprise that the county's rural beauty has been the underlying inspiration to several important classical literary works, such as Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' and Oscar Wilde's 'The Importance of Being Earnest'.
