At Country Properties, we could talk for hours about what Letchworth Garden City has to offer, and why it is a natural choice for so many people. Therefore, we love it when others also talk positively about the place, as it shows we are not alone in loving the area.

The Comet has recently highlighted some of the prettiest streets in North Herts, and we are delighted to see Letchworth feature so prominently.

Broadway Gardens is indicative of what Letchworth offers

The Comet said; “Broadway Gardens, perhaps best recognised for its iconic fountain, was developed based on the vision of Ebenezer Howard, who was responsible for the principals and designs of the world's first Garden City.”

Willian Road hosts an award-winning pub

The Comet said; “Willian Road is best known as the home of award-winning country pub The Fox at Willian, as well as Willian Road fishing pond.”

The Fox at Willian is a highly regarded pub, and holds a 4.4 rating on Google from more than 850 reviews. This is a very strong return, and it indicates there is a lot of positivity towards the pub and what it has to offer.

The food receives consistently good reviews, including breakfast, and it appears as though many people are fans of the bottomless brunch on offer!

While you shouldn’t look at property in an area just because a good pub is here, there is no denying that a great local pub helps many people to make more of their life. A lot of people also want to live in an area that has a good social setting, and a dependable pub is the cornerstone of this lifestyle for many people.

One of the key factors in the popularity of The Fox at William is the fact that it provides a wide range of reasons for people to attend. Whether you are looking for a place to enjoy breakfast or brunch, a casual afternoon with friends or something livelier in the evening, you will find there is a lot to like here.

Leys Avenue is a great choice

The Comet said; “Leys Avenue is full of shops and restaurants, with wide pavements perfect for pedestrians and a vibrant water feature.”

According to Rightmove, only one house has been sold in Leys Avenue in the past five years. A flat was sold in September 2018 for £240,000. Leys Avenue is certainly a road you can spend a lot of time in when you are in Letchworth. Whether you want to shop, drink or dine, this is a location that provides you with everything you need for a brilliant day.

The Wynd is lovely

The Comet said; “One of the hidden gems of Letchworth Garden City, The Wynd's tree-lined avenue is home to a number of independent shops and eateries, as well as the Garden City Brewery.”

The Garden City Brewery holds a score of 4.7 from close to 500 reviews, which suggests a lot of people love what is on offer.
