About Harpenden

Ashtons in Harpenden occupy a prime High Street position in this extremely popular Hertfordshire town that retains its enviable 'village' feel. Harpenden's most prestigious contribution to history is Rothamsted Manor and Rothamsted Research a leading centre worldwide for agricultural research.

Just to the south of the town centre is Harpenden Common, stretching from the shops in the town centre for more than a mile to the south, encompassing a total of 238 acres (96 ha). Today Harpenden Common hosts two Cricket Clubs, two Golf Clubs a football club, bridle ways for horse riding, ramblers paths, all contained in an area of natural beauty which was awarded a national Green Flag Award in 2007.

Harpenden has many shops commonly found in other English towns, with three central supermarkets, multiple ladies clothes shops, charity shops, banks, estate agents and chemists. A good proportion of these are run by independent retailers. The local council has resisted the opening of fast food chain outlets. Cafes are also common in Harpenden, but with only one commercial chain; the rest are owned independently. There are multiple restaurants and many pubs; both in central Harpenden and in its suburbs. Schooling is perhaps the best in Hertfordshire.

Harpenden has a remarkably fine stock of housing. West Common, East Common and the Avenues are perhaps the best known for large family houses on generous plots of land. Within the centre of Harpenden, there is a lovely enclave known as the Poets Area with roads named after famous poets including Byron and Milton where the majority of homes are large Victorian villas interspersed with some smaller cottages. Milton Road includes many fine apartments, handy for commuters being close to the station.

Just outside of central Harpenden, we have the popular districts of Aldwickbury and Southdown which offer more modern family homes supported by neighbourhood shops and a number of good schools.

To the north end of the town, the areas of Roundwood, Wood End and Kinsbourne Green offer highly sought after family housing stock.
