Despite its proximity to London and excellent communications to the capital by road and rail, Hertfordshire is deeply rural - and house prices are surprisingly reasonable

Although it is one of the smallest counties in England, Hertfordshire has a great variety of scenery, mostly, in the words of Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, 'uneventful but lovable'. Despite its proximity to London and excellent communications to the capital by road and rail, parts are surprisingly rural.

Hertford, the county town, is still an old market town, and wheat and barley are grown in abundance in the north, on the Cambridgeshire border. The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just touches the south-west of the county.

In the south, the soil is clay and the landscape heavily wooded. Building materials include the traditional timber - the county has an exceptionally high number of timber-framed buildings, constructed from the 13th to the 18th centuries.

The county has a long history: as Verulamium, St Albans was one of the main Roman towns in Britain, and more recently, a succession of great houses were built, including Hatfield House and Knebworth.

Given Hertfordshire's accessibility from London, house prices are surprisingly reasonable. The most popular areas include the corridor close to the M11 , within easy reach of Harlow and Saffron Walden, and the towns of Berkhamstead and Hampenden.
