Location

This maisonette is located on the edge of Bengeo, the ever popular area of Hertford, a short walk from local shops including the Co-Op mini supermarket, local pubs, and the highly regarded Bengeo Primary School and Duncombe School. It is also a fifteen to twenty minutes walk from both Hertford North and Hertford East railway stations with their regular services to London (Moorgate/Finsbury Park and Liverpool Street respectively). Hertford has a very good range of local facilities such as shops, restaurants, and supermarkets, as you would expect from a county town, yet is also an attractive and very pleasant place to live. The town is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside, right on your doorstep, and has a wide range of sporting and leisure pursuits close to hand, including Hartham Common with its riverside walks, Activity Centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
