Hitchin Lavender

Hitchin has been named the best place to live in Hertfordshire, and indeed one of the top places to live in the entire UK, by popular lifestyle website Muddy Stilettos.

Muddy Stilettos says “This super convenient commuter town has everything you could possibly want, and more.

Hip Hitchin is a beautiful market town in North Herts, built on the banks of the River Hiz. It’s historic – with narrow winding streets, gorgeous architecture and a traditional market square – but also oh-so-trendy. There’s also plenty of green space in which to sit with your high-end coffee and watch the world go by. Oh, and the commute to London or Cambridge is a cinch.”

Charming Hitchin with its cobbled town centre is renowned for its community vibe, its beautiful lavender fields and wonderful architecture and is fast growing in popularity among families looking to move away from the city.

While homes in Hitchin are certainly in high demand, the good news is that house prices remain reasonable, with an overall average price of £454,011 over the last year (according to Rightmove).

Hero Brown, founder and editor-in-chief of Muddy Stilettos, said: “When people move out of London, they are searching for more than just a house, they want to find a new lifestyle that works for them. This exclusive reader vote will give them a fresh perspective to make their search easier." 

St Albans came second in the survey of best places to live in Hertfordshire, followed by Tring, Harpenden, Hertingfordbury, Much Hadham, Rickmansworth and Radlett.
