We have been moving people in and around Hertfordshire, Essex and London for over 40 years and we know that it’s a great place to live and work.
Hertfordshire even comes with the strapline “County of Opportunity.” Whether you are thinking of moving to Hertfordshire or within it, there’s bound to be a place that you can make your own here.
What’s Hertfordshire like?
A home county in southern England, Hertfordshire covers 634 square miles and borders London, Essex, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, so offers lots of different options for commuting and days out.
Hertfordshire itself boasts many country parks and stately homes, as well as live music venues and busy shopping areas.
An affluent county, with easy commuter links to London, property prices tend to be higher, the more expensive places found in Harpenden and Radlett, while Hoddesdon and Stevenage are on the more affordable side. From softplay to indoor golf and bowling, there’s also plenty of places to keep the children entertained on rainy days.
There are also a range of impressive religious buildings, including The Cathedral and Abbey of Saint Alban, Amaravati Buddhist Monastery and Bhaktivedanta Manor Hare Krishna Temple.
With a combination of towns and villages, heritage and contemporary conveniences, five towns in Hertfordshire often find themselves rated in the top five places to live in the country. These are Much Hadham, Bishop’s Stortford, Harpenden, Berkhamsted and St Albans.
