Why live in Hatfield?

Hatfield is a great choice for people of all ages and stages of life. 

Hatfield is a great option for those needing to commute to the capital city. The local train station’s on the Thameslink line with a journey time to London of only 25 minutes. Travel directly to London Kings Cross, Finsbury Park or Moorgate stations. Hatfield is also just minutes from the A1, and a short distance from the M25. 

Its large local university, The University of Hertfordshire, is found on the edge of town and provides great opportunities for the professional landlord to stand out offering excellent properties to lecturers and university employees.  The neighbouring ‘Hatfield Business Park’ attracts plenty of new professionals on a regular basis requiring homes short and/or long term whether buying or renting.

Hatfield House and the Old Palace are beautiful historic places to visit. Elizabeth I grew up in the Old Palace, and she was in the palace gardens when she learned that she was to become queen. The beautiful Hatfield House is surrounded by 42 acres of grounds and has featured in many movies and TV shows.

Hatfield has regular markets and farmers markets, as well as plenty of shopping options and places to eat. The ‘Galleria’ is a huge draw for both discount shopping and evening entertainment with cinema and restaurants.

Our office is just a short walk from Hatfield train station, and there’s a car park just next to it providing free parking for up to two hours.

Having spoken to about 50 agents over the past 4 months, I can safely say Tim and the team at Country Properties are head and shoulders above the rest. Extremely knowledgeable, honest, not pushy, and consultative. If thinking of buying/selling in the area use with confidence.

Mr Ollie J

I must praise Zoe for the excellent customer service she provided us with when we moved to Hatfield. She helped us find the right property in a nice neighbourhood for our budget. I would highly recommend country properties Hatfield to any one.

Hatfield train station is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of town and is on the Thameslink line with frequent trains to London Kings Cross station, Finsbury Park and Moorgate. London can be reached in only 22 minutes, making Hatfield a great choice for those wanting to commute into the capital city. 

There’s an excellent choice of primary schools within Hatfield, and there are two secondary schools, one of which is Bishops Hatfield Girls Secondary School, which is an Ofsted-rated outstanding school. 

Hatfield is home to the well-respected University of Hertfordshire, providing the town with a large local student population. The university has over 25,000 students and is a big local employer.

Hatfield has an amazing history. The Jacobean estate, Hatfield House, was built in 1611, and it has 42 acres of gardens, which house the Old Palace. The Old Palace of Hatfield is on the estate, but pre-dates the house, as it was built in 1485. It later became Henry VIII’s, after the Reformation, and it’s said that he was a frequent visitor to the palace. Elizabeth I spent her early years here and it’s where, in 1558, she found out that she was to become queen. It’s thought that she was sat under an oak tree in the grounds when she heard the news. 

Hatfield House is visited not only for its history but because it’s used as a filming location for countless films and TV shows. This started in the 1960s but has continued through to the present day. Tim Burton’s Batman, Sleepy Hollow and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory have all had scenes filmed here.
