With a history tracing back to 970AD, Hatfield underwent significant growth in the 1950s, as a post-war New Town.

Nature lovers will also enjoy walks by the River Lea, which runs through Hatfield and alongside the Mill Green Museum and Mill, or the wide open spaces of Ellenbrook Fields reserve.

Sports fans will find good local facilities, and only have to travel to nearby Welwyn for more choice – with everything from golf and ski-ing, to athletics and track cycling available.

For the family rental market, Hatfield offers a choice of good schools, with seven ranked ‘outstanding’, whilst the large local university campus opens up options to consider entering the student rental market.
