Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Hertfordshire

For a holiday that allows you complete freedom to do as you like when you like, rent a Hertfordshire holiday cottage for a weekend retreat or romantic escape and explore this lovely county at your leisure. Hertfordshire is a gently rolling county in the shadow of the Chilterns, a pastoral area of 4,000 acres of commons and woodland. Follow the course of the River Lee, running through 23 miles of the Lee Valley Park, from Ware to London's East End, partaking in its recreations along the way.

Hertfordshire's main town is St. Albans. From its early Roman existence as Verulamium and the magnificent Cathedral and Abbey Church, St. Alban's, dedicated to Britain's first Christian martyr, to England's first Garden City of Letchworth, this country spans the arc of English history. The late Queen Mother was born in St. Pauls Walden, and George Bernard Shaw lived in Ayot St. Lawrence for 44 years. Knebworth House, set in 200 acres of wooded parkland, hosts many family attractions, including a narrow-gauge railway and the children's Adventure Playground. A quiet county with so much character, it is ideally placed for an easy weekend break or week-long holiday for visitors from London or cities in the Midlands.
