Hertfordshire breaks

Holiday cottages in Hertfordshire

Retreat to Rural Hertfordshire, one of the 'Home Counties' that surrounds London and is near Bedfordshire, Essex and Cambridge. The largest towns are Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage, Watford and St Albans. Hertford used to be the main market town and there are some larger 'new towns' such as Hemel and Welwyn Garden City, however there are some really Historic areas of interest in Hertfordshire. The rivers Colne and Lea are the main rivers and much of the land is agricultural and protected green belt.

St Albans was first settled by the Romans and has layers of different historical periods.

Welcoming spacious holiday accommodation in apartments, lodges and self-catering holiday cottages in Hertfordshire are available now, whether its last minute or months ahead - go ahead and check the dates.


Harry Potter territory - Visit Hertfordshire

There are many historic towns and villages in the county and is a great place to visit, even for short breaks from London.

St Albans Cathedral is a must see and Hatfield House and Knebworth House are amazing Statley homes. The Warner Bros Studios are a big draw for any Harry Potter fans as the films were made here.

Large groups looking to get away from it all can rent a bunk house or a group of cottages close together - slightly depends on the age and make up of your group. Whether it's a cycling, walking, riding or restful holiday you require, there will be accommodation to suit close by. A quick dash out of London with friends could make a long weekend stay in Hertfordshire highly desirable, with little traval time and rural properties to choose from.
